MILWAUKEE Marco Estrada had been waiting for this moment, the point at which everything seemed to come together for him on the mound, the moment he could officially call himself a major league starter. He had been a fill-in guy on plenty of occasions before, but ever since becoming a pitcher and getting his shot in the major leagues, Estrada wanted to be a regular starter. And on May 23 against the Giants, he had gotten that feeling, albeit briefly. He had just thrown one of the best innings of his career a 10-pitch, 1-2-3 frame that included two strikeouts. The work he had put in with pitching coach Rick Kranitz had started to show."I was feeling really good," Estrada said. "Kranny and I had worked on a lot of things before that outing and it all finally came together. I felt great out there. Next thing you know, I hit the ball and end up getting hurt." It was as random and unexpected as any of the Brewers injuries this season if not more so. After expect...

Brewers jerseys will celebrate Italian heritage

MILWAUKEE The Milwaukee Brewers have paid homage to the Hispanic heritage one day every season since 2006, a day in which the long-time "Brewers," for one game, become the "Cerveceros." But on Sunday, Brewers fans will be treated to an entirely different translation. In an effort to acknowledge the multiple cultures that built the city of Milwaukee, the Brewers...

Marcum's elbow ailment healing painfully slow

MILWAUKEE Originally expected to miss just a few starts during his time on the disabled list, due to soreness in his elbow, Milwaukee Brewers starting pitcher Shaun Marcum is not expected to return to the mound until after the All-Star break, according to Brewers manager Ron Roenicke. The nagging injury, which has caused Marcum to miss two starts now, remains just a matter of soreness...

Brewers' Wolf baffled by recent struggles

MILWAUKEE Brewers catcher George Kottaras trotted out to the mound in the middle of Friday night's 9-3 loss to the Diamondbacks to meet his pitcher Randy Wolf, who stood on the hill noticeably exasperated, caught in the midst of one of the most wearisome stretches of his 15-year baseball career. Wolf yelled into his glove out of frustration. When Wolf's four troubling innings...

Brewers' Braun, Greinke appear all-star bound

MILWAUKEE With all-star rosters set to be announced on Sunday afternoon, Milwaukee Brewers manager Ron Roenicke seemed relatively confident that he would see two of his players make the exclusive list. Of course, some of that could change with the fans voting in all-star starters, but the numbers lend themselves to having both left fielder Ryan Braun and starting pitcher Zack Greinke...

Brewers extend deal with Class-A Brevard

MILWAUKEE -- The Milwaukee Brewers on Friday announced the extension of a two-year player development contract with Class-A Brevard County, of the Florida State League. The deal will run through the 2014 season.

Greinke could be traded if Brewers keep falling

Many scouts were on hand Wednesday in Cincinnati to watch Brewers right-hander Zack Greinke pitch, and understandably so. Should the Brewers decide they have no chance to climb into the NL Central race and become a seller on the trade market, Greinke could be the top pitcher available. He is a free agent after the season, and if the Brewers think they have no chance to keep him...

Nyjer Morgan hits fan with glove while trying to catch foul ball (Video)

We all know that Brewers outfielder Nyjer Morgan is one wild and crazy guy which he showed off in the below video in yesterday's Reds/Brewers affair. In the ninth inning, Morgan attempted to catch a foul ball hit by Reds Devin Mesoraco and got into an incident with a fan sitting near the right field line: <p>Your browser does not support iframes.</p>

Collmenter chases seasons first win Sunday

Prior to Sunday's game at Miller Park, Milwaukee's Ryan Braun will almost certainly be selected to his fifth All-Star game. While Braun being named to the Midsummer Classic has come to be expected over the years, so has scheduled starter Yovani Gallardo's dominance of the Arizona Diamondbacks. Gallardo looks to earn his seventh victory in as many regular-season starts...

Based On History, Don't Expect a Fire Sale

In his latest "Full Count" video on FOX, Ken Rosenthal gave the plight of the Brewers quite a bit of airtime, discussing the various trade possibilities surrounding the club as their playoff chances continue to dwindle. If you're unable/too lazy to watch the video, I'll briefly summarize: - At this point, the club is probably going to sell, but they appear set...

Diamondbacks-Brewers Preview

The Milwaukee Brewers won their first postseason series in 29 years the last time the Arizona Diamondbacks were in town.

Milwaukee goes for a fifth consecutive home win over Arizona - including last season's NL division series - in Friday night's series opener. After winning...

Brewers 10, Diamondbacks 2

Braun's two home runs gave him the National League lead with 22 for the season.
