MILWAUKEE -- Brewers left-hander Chris Narveson is fully on board with the team's decision to move him to the bullpen instead of beginning the season in the team's starting rotation. Narveson was limited to just one start last season because of a torn rotator cuff, and he doesn't want to overdo things early in the season. "I'm not reading too much into it," Narveson said of the mutual decision. "It's just one of those things where it kind of gives you a little bit of a break between here and kind of cranking things up.

Milwaukee tried to pass Stinson through waivers to open up a spot on the 40-man roster, but the gamble didn't pay off. Right-hander Alfredo Figaro and catcher Blake Lalli both are competing for the final spots in the bullpen and on the bench, but neither are on the 40-man...

Renovated pitching improves Brewers chances

MILWAUKEE It's that time of year again. Every team has some kind of hope on Opening Day, as the pundits try to decipher which fan bases are delusional in thinking their team is a contender. Can the Milwaukee Brewers make another run at the postseason? They'll only go as far as their pitchers take them. The Brewers finished just five games back of the final Wild Card spot...

As of this season, though, the Brewers will no longer allow that practice. The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel is reporting that Waste Management, the company that has...

That One Time The Brewers Beat Adam Wainwright With Two Hits

(Photo: Mike Ehrmann) Adam Wainwright has not been generous to the Brewers over the years.  Among current players with a fair number of at bats against Wainwright, only Aramis Ramirez (.404) and Corey Hart (.265) hit him respectably.  Although I could not find Wainwright’s career numbers versus the Brewers overall (apparently I need to be a STATS LLC client for that) I was...
