Brewers' Noah Zavolas: Moved to Triple-A
Zavolas has been assigned to Triple-A Nashville.
Zavolas hasn't yet pitched above High-A, but he'll get to face higher-level competition in 2021. The right-hander made 22 starts for High-A Carolina in 2019 and posted a 2.98 ERA and 1.14 WHIP in 133 innings before an injury ended his season.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Mitch Longo: Signs minor-league contract
Longo signed a minor-league contract with the Brewers on Thursday.
Longo appeared in 90 games for Double-A Akron in 2019 and slashed .248/.320/.370 with five home runs and 29 RBI. He'll now serve as organizational depth for the Brewers, and he's been assigned to Double-A Biloxi.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Brent Suter: Getting start for bullpen game
Manager Craig Counsell said Suter would start Friday's series opener in Miami, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.
Milwaukee plans to treat the first game of its series with the Marlins as a bullpen day, so Suter shouldn't be expected to work much more than 2-to-3 innings in the start. Suter has been one of Mlwaukee's most reliable relievers this season, submitting a 2.70 ERA while striking out 15 in 16.2 innings.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Jacob Nottingham: Remains on bench
Nottingham isn't starting Thursday's game against Philadelphia.
Nottingham has shared time with Luke Maile at catcher since Omar Narvaez (hamstring) has been sidelined, but Nottingham will be out of the lineup for a second straight day. Maile will start behind the dish and bat eighth.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Avisail Garcia: Not starting Thursday
Garcia isn't in the lineup for Thursday's game against the Phillies.
Garcia will get a breather after he went 4-for-4 with a double and three RBI on Wednesday. Tyrone Taylor will start in right field and bat third.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Lorenzo Cain: On base four times Wednesday
Cain went 1-for-2 with three walks, two runs scored and a stolen base in Wednesday's 5-4 loss to the Phillies.
The veteran outfielder has looked great while starting two of three games since returning from a quad injury, reaching base six times in 11 trips to the plate. Cain's steal Wednesday was his second in 10 contests on the season, and the Brewers will need him to keep producing from the top of the order as they try to compensate for the absence of Christian Yelich (back)....

Brewers' Avisail Garcia: Four hits in loss to Phillies
Garcia went 4-for-4 with a double and three RBI in Wednesday's 5-4 loss to the Phillies.
While the outfielder had a big game, he didn't get a whole lot of help as Garcia accounted for half of the Brewers' hits on the night. The effort extended his hitting streak to six games, during which he's gone 11-for-21 with six RBI.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Freddy Peralta: Stuck with first loss
Peralta (3-1) took the loss Wednesday as the Brewers fell 5-4 to the Phillies, coughing up five runs on four hits and three walks over four innings. He struck out eight.
All five runs crossed the plate in a rough first inning, and while Peralta was able to steady the ship afterward, Milwaukee's offense couldn't climb out of the hole. The right-hander threw 44 of 73 pitches for strikes, and he'll take a 3.38 ERA and impressive 53:17 K:BB through 32 innings into his next outing.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Garrett Mitchell: Tweaks leg Wednesday
Mitchell exited Wednesday's minor-league game after tweaking his leg while running the bases, Todd Rosiak of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
The 22-year-old was productive prior to the injury, going 2-for-2 with a walk, two stolen bases and two runs before being lifted during the fifth inning. The team labeled his removal a precautionary move, so hopefully Mitchell is able to make a quick return to action.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Daniel Robertson: Close to return
Robertson (concussion) is feeling better and will test himself on the field during Wednesday's batting practice, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports
The infielder was concussed when hit in the head by a pitch on April 25. Robertson has had a dismal season at the plate thus far, getting on base at a .190 clip in 43 plate appearances, but his return will provide Milwaukee with much-needed bench depth, especially after Keston Hiura's demotion....

Brewers' Brett Anderson: Completes bullpen session
Anderson (hamstring) completed a bullpen session Tuesday, but he remains without an official return timeline since he has yet to clear running tests, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.
The left-hander apparently isn't having any issues with the hamstring strain while throwing, but he won't be fully cleared until he passes the running tests. Anderson figures to throw another bullpen session within the next few days and could seemingly rejoin the rotation next week if he's clear of the running issues.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Corbin Burnes: Timeline for return coming soon
Burnes' return timeline will be unclear until the end of the week, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
The righty was placed on the COVID-19 list at the end of a dominant April in which he struck out 49 batters and walked zero. Burnes figures to return sooner rather than later, and manager Craig Counsell's update at the end of the week will likely hint at his return date.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Billy McKinney: Fading into bench role
McKinney is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Phillies.
Even with Christian Yelich (back) returning to the injured list just one game after being activated, McKinney looks like he'll be relegated to fourth-outfielder duties since Lorenzo Cain (quadriceps) also came off the IL the same day as Yelich. Cain, Jackie Bradley and Avisail Garcia are expected to serve as Milwaukee's everyday outfielders until Yelich rejoins the mix.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Jacob Nottingham: Sitting Wednesday
Nottingham is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Phillies.
Since Nottingham was called up from the Brewers' alternate site ahead of Sunday's series finale against the Dodgers, he and Luke Maile have alternated starts behind the plate. Expect the timeshare at catcher to remain in place until the Brewers get Omar Narvaez (hamstring) back from the 10-day injured list.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Luis Urias: Not starting Wednesday
Urias isn't starting Wednesday's game against the Phillies.
Urias will get a breather after he struck out five times across the last two games. Pablo Reyes will start at shortstop and bat seventh.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Mark Mathias: Opts for season-ending surgery
Mathias announced via his personal Twitter account that he underwent season-ending surgery on his right shoulder Tuesday.
Mathias was initially hopeful to avoid surgery when he tore his labrum in spring training, but he ultimately reversed course after failing to progress as expected over the past six weeks. Even before the shoulder injury surfaced, the 26-year-old utility man was considered a borderline candidate to make the Brewers' Opening Day club, so he could be at risk of being non-tendered this winter....
