MLB Injury News:
With five games left in the regular season, the Milwaukee Brewers are already starting the arduous process of regrouping from an injury and controversy-plagued season. Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports that manager Ron Roenicke will have workhorse starting pitcher Wily Peralta skip his final start on Saturday due to recovery from a blister on his pitching hand:
McCalvy quotes Roenicke as saying that "he's in a really good spot now with the workload that he's had
this year [183 1/3 innings], and we think where he is with his innings
and now this coming up, it's a good time for him to go ahead and -- I
don't want to say shut it down, because I don't want him shutting it
down -- but it's a good time to put somebody else in there."
This move will have a double benefit for the Milwaukee Brewers. Along with safeguarding the 24-year-old Peralta after a season which sees him currently second on the club to Kyle Lohse in innings pitched, the Brewers will give top right-handed pitching prospect Jimmy Nelson his first start in his place. Nelson has appeared three times in a relief role this September.
Peralta will finish the season at 11-15 with a 4.37 ERA. As expected, he was up and down all year from a consistency standpoint, despite showing flashes of brilliance in several starts. His biggest challenge in the off-season will be working on his control, as his twelve wild pitches in 2013 ties him for sixth-most in the National League.

MILWAUKEE -- It's only fitting -- but not in a good way -- that the most frustrating season in Aramis Ramirez's 16-year career is likely going to end in a disheartening and, well, kind of crazy way.
After battling left knee problems since injuring it in spring training, Ramirez strained his left knee in the benches-clearing brawl Wednesday night and doesn't believe he...
Somehow, Kyle Lohse had to settle down after both benches and bullpens had cleared before he even took the mound Wednesday night. The veteran right-hander was not only able to restore order to the game, but he did so in impressive fashion.
Making his final start of the season, Lohse became the first Brewers pitcher to record a shutout in under 90 pitches since 1992, two-hitting...
Brian McCann got more than his share of air time in the 24 hours after his nose-to-nose confrontation with Brewers outfielder Carlos Gomez that fueled a benches-clearing fracas Wednesday night.
McCann is featured mask up eyes blazing and shouting at Gomez in countless photos from multiple angles and a myriad of video replays. McCann has had his actions analyzed by broadcasters who...
Just two batters in, Wednesday night's game between the Milwaukee Brewers and the Atlanta Braves took a turn nobody saw coming.
Brewers center fielder Carlos Gomez homered off Braves starter Paul Maholm and stood and admired his shot a bit too long. Looking to get back at Maholm for what he felt was an intentional plunking back in June, Gomez said a few words to the left-hander...
Milwaukee Brewers center fielder Carlos Gomez ignited a bench clearing brawl with the Atlanta Braves in the first inning of Wednesday night's game at Turner Field when he took a bit too long to admire his home run before jogging the bases.

It's unknown if the Milwaukee Brewers will have their leading home run hitter for the opener to the final series of this season.
With Carlos Gomez potentially facing a suspension, the Brewers will try to spoil the New York Mets' return from a successful road trip Thursday night.
Gomez's first-inning homer - his 23rd of the season - got Milwaukee (71-87) started toward...
Yeah you can't do that Carlos Gomez. You also can't do that Brian McCann.
This one certainly appears to be mostly on Gomez but you have to wonder whether something preceded all of this. Gomez almost vengefully swung for the downs on the pitch before he homered and looked quite agitated when he missed and almost fell. One gets the idea that something motivated Gomez's...
Nobody can say the Milwaukee Brewers went down without a fight in 2013.
In what might have been their most interesting game of the season they overcame a first-inning benches-clearing fracas sparked by Carlos Gomez to record their fourth shutout of the Atlanta Braves 4-0 at Turner Field.
Kyle Lohse pitched a gem of a game going the distance for the second time in his last three...
The Brewers' Carlos Gomez and the Braves' Reed Johnson have each been suspended one game after a benches-clearing argument between their teams.
Both were also fined an undisclosed amount Thursday.
In the top of the first inning Wednesday in Atlanta, Gomez homered off Paul Maholm, still furious the Braves starter hit him with a pitch three months earlier.

Let see, it only took the second batter of the game to rev up this much drama in the first inning as Milwaukee Brewers center fielder, Carlos Gomez hits a rocket dead center for his 23rd home run of the year. He can tell you that because he admired it from a far, yep he stood right there and watched it! When he did decide to run around the bases he had some...
Carlos Gomez’s home run reaction caused a benches clearing confrontation against the Atlanta Braves on Wednesday night.
Warning: Be prepared for an angry rant about a stupid decision from a not-so-smart baseball player. Before reading this, make sure to watch the video (courtesy of mlb.com) of what happened.
Only lesson to learn from this fight: Carlos Gomez is a douche. No class whatsoever. Even better is that all 4 sets of anno…
