The Milwaukee Brewers placed right-hander Yovani Gallardo on the 15-day disabled list Wednesday with a strained left hamstring. The extra man on the roster for Tuesday's doubleheader, second baseman Scooter Gennett, will stay up to fill Gallardo's roster spot. Leaving Tuesday's start in the fifth inning, Gallardo likely aggravated a nagging hamstring when he dove to catch a bunt attempt in the bottom of the fourth inning. Gallardo stayed in, hit in the top of the fifth inning and returned to the mound for the bottom of the frame. He was forced to leave the game while pitching to Cubs second baseman Darwin Barney with the bases loaded and two outs. In the midst of the worst season of his career, Gallardo admitted the hamstring has been bothering him since before the All-Star break to reporters after the game. Gallardo is 8-9 with a 4.91 ERA in 23 starts this season. With Gallardo missing at least three starts, rookie right-hander Tyler Thornburg will likely jump into...

The Five Silliest Reactions to Braun’s Suspension (And a Sensible One)

(Image: Jacquelyn Martin/AP) Now that it’s been over a week since Ryan Braun accepted a 65-game suspension for violating MLB’s drug policy and basic agreement, professional and amateur pundits have had plenty of opportunity to share their opinions.  Some of these reactions have been thoughtful and interesting.  Many more have been tedious.  Here are five examples of the...

Brewers put RHP Gallardo on DL

The Milwaukee Brewers put right-hander Yovani Gallardo on the 15-day disabled list Wednesday with a strained left hamstring.

Brewers endure key injury amid doubleheader sweep

Tyler Thornburg threw the ball well enough to earn another start in the near future. Unfortunately, the Milwaukee Brewers likely will need a starter five days from now due to an injury. While two comeback victories over the Chicago Cubs paced Milwaukee to its first doubleheader sweep since 2010, the Brewers may have lost right-hander Yovani Gallardo in the process. Gallardo left...

Brewers unlikely to make big moves before waiver deadline

All was quiet for the Milwaukee Brewers on Tuesday's non-waiver trade deadline, as the clubhouse remained intact After trading closer Francisco Rodriguez to Baltimore last week, the Brewers stood pat and didn't sell any of their assets as general manager Doug Melvin was underwhelmed with the offers he received. What comes next? The Brewers still can make trades in August...

Brewers' Aramis Ramirez making slow progress with knee

With Ryan Braun suspended for the remainder of the season, the Milwaukee Brewers have decidedly less pop in lineup.  That will change when Aramis Ramirez returns from the DL. Unfortunately, the progress he is making in his rehab is slow and there is no date set for return. Adam McCalvy of MLB.com says Ramirez has been making progress, but it has not been as quick as he or the...

Brewers try to finish four-game sweep of Cubs

The Milwaukee Brewers have saved the majority of their runs for the late innings and are on the verge of their first four-game sweep of the Chicago Cubs. Scoring may be more frequent for both teams if Chicago starter Edwin Jackson can't end his struggles versus the Milwaukee Brewers and Wily Peralta is unable to overcome his recent woes Wednesday night. The Brewers (46-61) haven...

Brewers sweep doubleheader from Cubs at Wrigley

It was a day of mixed emotions for the Milwaukee Brewers on Tuesday. They used a pair of late-inning comebacks to sweep a split doubleheader against the Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field 6-5 and 3-2 but lost starting pitcher Yovani Gallardo in the first game to a left-hamstring injury. The Brewers used a four-run seventh inning keyed by a three-run opposite-field home run by rookie...
CATCHING A FEW WINKS

Cubs fan caught snoozing at the game?

During the 4th inning of the Cubs and Brewers game today at Wrigley, a female fan was caught on TV falling asleep and waking up a bit confused.  The best part is that no one will blame her for taking a snooze as the Cubs season has been a half-year long snooze-fest.  Fans sleeping always make for great .GIFs. The Brewers ended up beating the Cubs by a score of 6-5. [@goldandorsmith...

Brewers 3, Cubs 2

Jeff Bianchi delivered a two-run single off shortstop Starlin Castro's glove with two out in the ninth to lead the Milwaukee Brewers to a 3-2 victory over the Chicago Cubs and a day-night doubleheader sweep on Tuesday. The Brewers pulled out the nightcap after a 6-5 victory in which they lost starter Yovani Gallardo to a tight left hamstring. In the second game, they got six...

Brewers don't intend to trade Kyle Lohse, Yovani Gallardo, Nori Aoki

I just checked in with Brewers general manager Doug Melvin who is not in Chicago preparing for today's split doubleheader with the Cubs. Instead he's at Miller Park in the trade "war room" where things seem very quiet leading up to the Wednesday 3 p.m. non-waiver deadline. Because right-hander Kyle Lohse has been pitching so well for so long I asked Melvin if he...
