MLB Injury News:
Milwaukee Brewers right-handed starting pitcher Kyle Lohse dislocated
his left pinky finger during Monday night’s contests against the San Diego
Padres. While certainly painful, the injury is to Lohse’s non-throwing hand,
and the veteran told reporters – including Tom Haudricourt of The Journal Sentinel
– that he’s hoping to make his next scheduled start.
"We just need to get some of the swelling out of
it," said Lohse, who had the finger taped to the ring finger to give it
some stability. "It's a little sensitive, but I should be OK."
Lohse suffered the injury while attempting a sacrifice bunt.
On the way to first base, his finger was jammed into Padres second baseman Jedd
Gyorko. The training staff was eventually able to pop the finger back into
place, and X-rays revealed no fracture.
The Brewers have an off day on Thursday, so Lohse will have
an extra 24 hours to recover from the dislocation. If necessary, manager Ron
Roenicke told reporters that Lohse could be bumped back a day or two more.

Ouch. And again we say: Ouch.
Brewers pitcher Kyle Lohse incurred a nasty pinky injury on his left hand in Monday night’s game, and he did it the last way a pitcher wants to get hurt: running the bases. Well, to be more precise, he was trying to get to first base after laying down a sacrifice bunt. Instead, Lohse’s finger got caught on Padres second baseman Jedd Gyorko, who was...

MILWAUKEE -- With talented young pitchers come growing pains.The Milwaukee Brewers know there will be plenty of outings this season in which Wily Peralta makes people take notice of his talent but that there will be plenty of other times where the young right-hander leaves them scratching their heads.
In four starts this season, the good Peralta has shown up for two outings, and...
Last week saw the release of OOTP14, the latest in Out of the Park Developments excellent baseball simulation series, and ever since then I have been playing it. The game is a definite upgrade from last season, but also I played as the Yankees, I played as the Pirates and I played as the Braves, but I never played as the Brewers. The reason is simple: I don't know what the hell...
MILWAUKEE For those who feel spring training is too long, Kyle Lohse is making a very compelling case in support of the argument.
After signing a three-year, 33 million deal with the Brewers in time to make just one spring training start, Lohse was expected to go through some early season hiccups as he settled in.
Instead, Lohse has had been in midseason form, showing impeccable...
Yuniesky Betancourt crushed a three-run homer to left field to give the Brewers an early lead in the top of the first, but it was the play in the stands which got the most attention. Check out the young Padres fan who laid out backwards to haul in the dinger with no regard for his safety. Very impressive work. Your browser does not support iframes.

It took only six days, but Major League Baseball has finally determined that Brewers shortstop Jean Segura and anyone else who might want to run backward on the basepaths doesn't have the right to "steal" first base.
During Milwaukee's Friday night victory against the Cubs, Segura was on second base and Ryan Braun was on first base when Segura got caught in a...
With Ryan Braun leading the way, the Milwaukee Brewers find themselves on the verge of their longest winning streak in 10 seasons.
Victories, in contrast, haven't been easy to come by for the San Diego Padres - especially at home.
Milwaukee aims for a ninth consecutive win when it continues a three-game set against the slumping Padres on Tuesday night at Petco Park.
Earlier today, Jim Breen / @JP_Breen - head writer at the wonderful Disciples of Uecker site and a contributor at fangraphs.com - asked fans, via twitter, if they thought Yuniesky Betancourt had "fundamentally changed as a player."
This question was asked in light of Betancourt's unexpected offensive contributions as an everyday player so far this season. For those...
Yovani Gallardo pitched into the seventh inning and the Milwaukee Brewers rode an early offensive outburst to another win, beating the San Diego Padres 6-3 Tuesday night for their ninth straight win.
Gallardo (2-1) allowed three runs and eight hits in 6 2-3 innings, with five walks and two strikeouts. Jonathan Lucroy hit a two-run double in the Brewers' five-run second inning...

Braun and the Brewers go for an eighth consecutive victory Monday night when they open a three-game set against the slumping San Diego Padres at Petco Park.

*Yuniesky Betancourt, Spring Training 2013 casualty, is now with the Milwaukee Brewers and is batting .279/.795 with 3 HR and 15 RBI. Instead of releasing him, Amaro should have signed him to a 5 YR/$125M contract. Don't ya think?!*Ben Revere might be a defensive whiz, but his offense negates any good he does with the glove. His OPS is .472, which ranks 186th out of 192...

Last weekend, the Brewers won two games thanks to several timely errors by the Cubs. In games started by Edwin Jackson and Scott Feldman, the Brewers took the lead on unearned runs both times. It seems like a shame for Jackson and Feldman to get tagged with losses in those cases (as much as the Cubs losing can be a “shame” anyway).
It got me thinking...
