Right-hander Kyle Lohse will miss his next scheduled turn in the Milwaukee Brewers' rotation because of irritation in his pitching elbow.
Mike Fiers will start in place of Lohse on Saturday against visiting Pittsburgh.
Milwaukee manager Ron Roenicke made the announcement before Wednesday's game against the Los Angeles Dodgers.
Lohse signed a $33 million, three-year contract with Milwaukee a week before opening day and is 1-5 with a 3.76 ERA. According to Roenicke, Lohse felt discomfort two or three starts ago.
"He could go out and pitch," said Roenicke, who expects Lohse to miss just one start. "But because he didn't have a spring training, we would rather try to get rid of this, so we're going to bump him a start."
Fiers is 1-2 with a 5.93 ERA in one start and seven relief appearances, getting the win in relief Tuesday against the Dodgers.

MILWAUKEE -- The Milwaukee Brewers are a team searching for answers, unsure if they are going to find them in time.
The overall sloppiness of Wednesday's loss that dropped the Brewers to 4-16 in May has frustration setting in. Though there's plenty of baseball left to be played, Milwaukee is going to need to find a groove in order to prevent finding itself out of contention...
MILWAUKEE -- The Milwaukee Brewers are moving closer to getting a pair of left-handers back from the disabled list as Tom Gorzelanny and Chris Narveson both took steps forward Tuesday.
Gorzelanny threw a simulated game to hitters on the field prior to Tuesday's game against Los Angeles, and he could be activated for Friday's game against Pittsburgh.

Much has been said and written about Paul Molitor’s messy breakup with the Milwaukee Brewers back in the early 1990s, but the organization retired his No. 4 in 1999 and he remains a well-respected icon of the franchise to this day. Of course, he’s been mostly affiliated with the Minnesota Twins for the last decade, the team with whom he played his last years in the big leagues...

MILWAUKEE -- Carlos Gomez knew Zack Greinke was smiling when he struck him out with two runners on in the first inning.
He also knew exactly what his former teammate was going to throw him when he got up for his third at-bat of the day in the fifth inning. Gomez got exactly what he was looking for and laced a two-run double to left, ending Greinke's day.

Your browser does not support iframes.Milwaukee Brewers slugger Ryan Braun is known more for his hitting prowess rather than his ability to patrol the outfield. But on this play it was his glove that stole the show.
Yesterday, I did a short piece about a feature that minor league analyst/writer/scout Nathaniel Stoltz published in Big Leauges Magazine that focused on some Nashville Sounds players. As it turns out, Nathaniel has a nice youtube channel featuring some plate appearances and pitching performances by the Brewers Triple-A players, as well! Really nice clarity, here, for seeing movement...
