Brewers' Eric Lauer: Another start on tap
Lauer is scheduled to start Wednesday's game against the Twins, Phil Miller of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
The left-hander had an ugly performance in his first start of the season Friday with six runs allowed over three innings, but he'll receive at least one more turn through the rotation. Lauer may need a better performance Wednesday to retain the starting role, as Corbin Burnes is fully stretched out and delivered 5.1 innings of stellar relief in Saturday's contest.... See More ...

Brewers' Orlando Arcia: On bench Sunday
Arcia is out of the lineup Sunday versus Cincinnati, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.
Arcia started the past four games but will take a seat after going 2-for-12 with two strikeouts and two walks. Eric Sogard will shift to shortstop Sunday, while Brock Holt starts at third base.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Ben Gamel: Not in Sunday's lineup
Gamel is out of the lineup Sunday against the Reds, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.
Gamel started the last seven games -- since Lorenzo Cain opted out of the season -- but will take a seat Sunday after going 6-for-28 with two homers, two doubles, five RBI and 12 strikeouts during that stretch. Mark Mathias will start in right field for Milwaukee in the series finale.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Omar Narvaez: Day off Sunday
Narvaez is not in the lineup Sunday against the Reds, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.
Narvaez started the past three games and will receive Sunday off after going 3-for-11 with one walk and four strikeouts in that span. Manny Pina will work behind the plate in the series finale.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Keston Hiura: Swipes second bag
Hiura went 0-for-3 with a walk, two strikeouts and a stolen base in Saturday's 4-1 loss to the Reds. He also committed two errors.
It's been a slow start for Hiura in the batting-average department (.213), but at least he's providing a little category juice in fantasy leagues with two homers and two steals through 12 games. He may be due for a day off soon, especially after his pair of errors in the field Saturday (one fielding, one throwing).... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Corbin Burnes: Shines in long relief
Burnes allowed one run on one hit and three walks while striking out eight over 5.1 innings out of the bullpen against the Reds on Saturday.
The right-hander was excellent in relief of Brett Anderson, inducing 14 swinging strikes on 77 pitches. It marked his second straight appearance working in tandem with Anderson, who has been limited so far as he works his way back from a finger injury. Burnes may have done enough here to earn a starting assignment next week, though he's showing enough of a strikeout punch to warrant an active spot in many leagues regardless of role.... See More ...

Brewers' Brett Anderson: Takes first loss as Brewer
Anderson (0-1) was charged with three runs (two earned) on four hits over 3.2 innings in a loss to the Reds on Saturday. He struck out two and walked two.
Cincinnati cashed in on a Keston Hiura fielding error in the first inning with a Eugenio Suarez three-run homer. Anderson was able to keep the ball on the ground otherwise, inducing eight groundballs before giving way to Corbin Burnes. The veteran southpaw missed the start of the season with a finger injury and is still building his arm up (68 pitches Saturday). Anderson projects for a couple tough road matchups against the Cubs and Twins in the weeks ahead, assuming he sticks in the starting rotation.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Justin Smoak: Sitting Saturday
Smoak is not in the lineup Saturday against Cincinnati.
Smoak sits for just the second time in the Brewers' first 12 games, though his .128/.186/.231 slash line could send him to the bench more often going forward. Logan Morrison takes over at first base in his absence.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Avisail Garcia: Returns to lineup
Garcia (forearm) will be in the lineup Saturday against Cincinnati, Will Sammon of The Athletic reports.
Garcia was struck in the forearm by a pitch Thursday and sat out Friday's contest, but he's dealing with nothing worse than soreness and will be able to return after a very brief absence. He's gotten on base well to start the season but hasn't shown much power, hitting .258/.395/.355 through nine games.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Ryan Braun: Won't return Sunday
Braun (finger) won't return from the injured list when first eligible Sunday, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Previous reports held that Braun would require just a minimum-length stay on the injured list with his infected finger, but he'll evidently need at least a bit more time, as the Brewers want him to get at-bats in a simulated game or two. The Brewers have used five different players at the designated hitter spot in his absence.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Logan Morrison: Cracks first homer
Morrison went 1-for-3 with a walk and a solo home run in Friday's 8-3 loss to the Reds.
This was a game to forget for Milwaukee, though Morrison's homer off Trevor Bauer -- his first of the year -- qualifies as a bright spot. He was off to a miserable start with two hits and zero walks in his first six games. Ryan Braun (finger) is due back after the minimum, but Morrison will remain in the mix for starts at first base and DH against right-handed pitching.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Christian Yelich: Connects for third homer
Yelich went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Friday's 8-3 loss to the Reds.
After a very slow start to the 2020 season, Yelich has now homered in back-to-back games and has reached base 10 times in his last four games. An NL MVP finalist last year after being named NL MVP in 2018, Yelich has not had his timing down early on, and he's not alone with the league-wide average hovering barely above .230.... See More ...

Brewers' Eric Lauer: Allows six runs in loss
Lauer (0-1) allowed six runs on five hits and three walks over three innings in a loss to the Reds on Friday. He struck out two batters.
The Reds entered the night with zero runs scored in their last 22.1 innings, but the offense found reprieve against Lauer, who was making his first start in a Brewers uniform. All of the damage was done in the second inning; Cincinnati went walk, single, flyout, double, sac fly, double, walk, homer against Lauer. Part of the Trent Grisham-Luis Urias trade, Lauer made his team debut July 26 and fanned six while allowing just one hit over 2.2 scoreless innings against the Cubs. The lefty will likely transition back to the bullpen for the time being with the Brewers ostensibly healthy in the rotation.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Eric Sogard: On bench Friday
Sogard isn't in the lineup Friday against the Reds.
Even with right-hander Trevor Bauer on the mound for the Reds, Sogard will play a bench role in the series opener Friday. Brock Holt will step in at third base, leading off.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Avisail Garcia: Sitting with forearm soreness
Garcia is not starting Friday against the Reds due to forearm soreness.
Garcia was hit by a pitch on the forearm in Thursday's win against the White Sox, and he'll be held out as he's still sore. Manager Craig Counsell said prior to the game that Garcia is considered day-to-day. Ben Gamel will take over in center field with Mark Mathias starting in right field Friday.... See More ... See Less
