Posted June 23, 2012 on AP on Fox
The Milwaukee Brewers placed starting pitcher Shaun Marcum on the 15-day disabled list with elbow soreness and activated first baseman Travis Ishikawa. The team announced the moves before Saturday's game against the Chicago White Sox. Marcum did not make his scheduled start June 19 because of elbow discomfort. The move to the DL is retroactive to June 15 and he is expected to miss just one more start. In 13 starts, the right-hander is 5-3 with a 3.39 ERA. Ishikawa has been out since May 27 with a strained left oblique. He is hitting .250 with four homers and 14 RBIs in 32 games.

Brewers place Marcum on 15-day disabled list

Diagnosed with elbow tightness that caused him to miss his last scheduled start, Milwaukee Brewers pitcher Shaun Marcum was placed on the 15-day disabled list on Saturday. The move is retroactive to June 15, which means Marcum will miss only one week's worth of action. To take his place on the active roster, first baseman Travis Ishikawa who had been on the 15-day DL with an...

Shaun Marcum placed on DL with Elbow Tightness

Shaun Marcum has been placed on the 15-day disabled list due to tightness in his right elbow. Marcum, a former third round draft pick in the 2003 amateur draft by the Toronto Blue Jays, was scratched from his last scheduled start on Tuesday and has not been able to take the mound since June 14. Marcum has been solid this season, with a 5-3 record and 3.39 ERA in just over 82 innings...

Students create grill replica of Miller Park

Members of Engineering Club from Kohler High School in Wisconsin — nearby the Whistling Straits golf course, the site of the 2010 PGA Championship (the more you know) — recently competed in an event called “Project Grill” along with other schools throughout the region. Their submission? A replica of Miller Park, home of the Milwaukee [...]

Melvin to be inducted into Canadian HOF

MILWAUKEE Brewers general manager Doug Melvin is set to be inducted into the Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum this weekend, in St. Mary's, Ontario. Joining Melvin in the Canadian hall this year are Rusty Staub, Rheal Cormier, and the Canadian National Team that won the 2011 Pan American Games. "I'm humbled and excited to be honored," Melvin said in a statement...

Brewers' Greinke wins battle of dueling aces

The 2012 baseball season has been loaded with dominant pitching performances perfect games, no-hitters, one-hitters, and more but not many games this season have boasted two dominant, near-perfect, pitchers on the mound.That was the case on Friday night, as the Brewers squeaked by the White Sox with a 1-0 win in 10 innings. Brewers' pitcher Zack Greinke tallied one of the best...

Inconsistent Crew limited by small mistakes

It was a painfully slow start in 2012 for the Brewers' starting rotation, as all five hurlers struggled to find a rhythm. But with those days seemingly long gone, Milwaukee's starters haven't lost a game since June 9. So why aren't the Brewers making the same headway in the division race that they did last season? For one, during that 13-game span without a starter...

Time to regain 2011 Brewers' 'magic'

At 33-39, six-and-a-half games back in the NL Central race, the Milwaukee Brewers certainly aren't in the position they thought they'd be when the 2012 season began. You could see as much in manager Ron Roenicke's face on Sunday afternoon, shortly after the team's second consecutive late-inning loss to the White Sox, his eyes darting downward, only briefly looking...

Brewers' bullpen has fallen off from 2011 form

The bullpen has been a season-long issue for the Milwaukee Brewers, be it in the middle or late innings. The relievers have blown too many leads, allowed too many "tack-on runs." Entering play Sunday, Milwaukee's relief corps had a 4.56 ERA, which ranked 14th among the 16 National League clubs. That's not going to cut it if the Brewers (33-39) want to get back...

Fenway Park Better Ballpark Than Milwaukee's Miller Park, Despite ESPN Vote

Fenway Park is old fashioned, but the ownership group of John Henry, Larry Lucchino and Tom Werner has drastically improved the 100-year-old ballpark since they took over the team in 2002. With additions such as EMC Club, Right Field Roof Deck and new video boards while keeping old traditions such as the manual scoreboard in left field, Fenway is baseball’s most unique ballpark...

Lone Wolf: Starting pitcher could use support

The series opener between the Chicago White Sox and Milwaukee Brewers was a classic pitchers' duel.The middle game at U.S. Cellular Field doesn't seem like it will follow suit.Batters could take the spotlight Saturday night, when the recently recalled Dylan Axelrod takes the ball for the White Sox against the Brewers' Randy Wolf, who is mired in a nine-start winless drought...

The State of the Brewers/White Sox Rivalry

Milwaukee Brewers fans’ perceptions of the Chicago White Sox, in 2012, lean toward ambiguity.  Is it slow-burning animosity, general loathing, or warm, fuzzy compassion?  When the Brewers switched to the National League in 1998, the rivalry between the Brewers and White Sox was lost, aside from the occasional interleague matchup.  The latest clash begins Friday at U.S. Cellular...

Brewers vs. White Sox: Consider The Following

I don't know about you guys, but I sure am glad to be through with that Jays lineup. Sixteen dingers between the two teams over three games! It really is remarkable that Milwaukee took two of three (and probably should have swept) considering they gave up ten, with two apiece to Jose Bautista and Edwin Encarnacion. With that, the Brewers sit at 32-37 to begin their final interleague...

The Bullpen Isn't Really This Bad

Photo: Benny Sieu/U.S Presswire Even if their quality of play has improved over the last few weeks, the Brewers are still finding new and exciting ways to lose an unacceptably high number of games. The last two days have been no exception, and in both contests, the culprit was a unit that has plagued the club all year: The bullpen. On Saturday, the offense (which has been pretty...
