The Arizona Diamondbacks are showing continued interest in multiple
Milwaukee Brewers pitchers, major-league sources told
BEST OF MAXIM
The Milwaukee Brewers have signed 16-year-old Dominican outfielder Nicolas Pierre Figueroa for 800,000, according to Baseball America.
Tuesday marked the first day of baseball's international signing period, and the Brewers didn't waste much time jumping on Pierre Figueroa.
Ranked as the 28th best international prospect by MLB.com and 20th overall by Baseball America, the...
Besides a rough stretch in May, Kyle Lohse has been exactly what the Milwaukee Brewers expected when they signed him a week before the season started.
Two days after having a start cut short due to a rain delay, Lohse was at his best Wednesday evening in Washington. A solo home run was the only blemish on his line, as Lohse worked eight strong innings in Milwaukee's 4-1 win...
Sean Halton was about to enjoy a rare day off at the mall in Nashville with teammates when his phone rang.
It was an off-day he was really looking forward to after a long road trip with stops in Iowa and New Orleans.
There weren't many things Halton would give up his off-day for, but he had no problem giving up his first day off in 20 days to head to the major leagues for the...
It has been a struggle to close out games for the Diamondbacks bullpen this season. In fact, Arizona’s ‘pen already has 16 blown saves, which is tied with the Dodgers, Cubs and Orioles for most in all of baseball.
Milwaukee Brewers right-hander Wily Peralta left Tuesday's start against Washington in the sixth inning with a left hamstring strain.
Peralta, who hadn't allowed a run through five innings, left after getting Nationals left fielder Bryce Harper to bunt into an out to start the bottom of the sixth inning.
"It tightened up on him," Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said...

Arizona Diamondbacks catcher Miguel Montero was caught on camera as he appeared to be licking some bats on the dugout steps during Monday night's game at Citi Field against the New York Mets.
Montero put his mouth to the barrel of two bats to select which one he was going to use for his seventh inning at-bat, and after this video went...
Twins' manager Ron Roenicke provided updates on starters Marco Estrada and Alfredo Figardo, who are both on the disabled list and in Arizona rehabbing.
Estrada, who's trying to come back from a strained left hamstring, still hasn't progressed to the point where he's able to begin pitching in games.
"He still feels it a little bit, so we can't have him...
MILWAUKEE -- When a pitcher is 6-foot-9 and throwing 96 mph, the first thing that comes to mind is strikeouts and lots of them.
Milwaukee Brewers rookie right-hander Johnny Hellweg is 6-foot-9 and throws that hard, but he isn't a strikeout pitcher; not anymore. In a concerted effort to pitch to contact, Hellweg has shifted his focus to trying to get outs earlier in the count...
Two of the Arizona Diamondbacks top prospects were given an honor by the organization on Tuesday. Triple-A infielder Chris Owings and Double-A pitcher David Holmberg were named the organization’s Minor League Player and Pitcher of the Month for June this afternoon.
The Brewers and Diamondbacks are currently in talks regarding starter Yovani Gallardo and relief pitchers John Axford, Francisco Rodriguez and Jim Henderson, sources tell Jon Morosi of Fox Sports.
As of tonight, no deal appears imminent, Morosi says, but a deal between the two teams is very possible. While the Brewers have some good pieces in their bullpen, the Diamondbacks have...
Kyle Lohse tossed eight sharp innings on short rest and the Milwaukee Brewers beat the Washington Nationals 4-1 on Wednesday, shutting down Bryce Harper and Co. for the second night in a row.
Lohse (4-6) allowed one run and four hits, and had a season-high seven strikeouts against the eager-swinging Nationals, who barely avoided back-to-back shutouts and fell back to .500. Harper...
Baseball players are known to be very superstitious and odd creatures. This much is true.But what Arizona Diamondbacks catcher Miguel Montero did to his bat Monday night remains a mystery.Seen here is Montero apparently licking bats in order to find which one suits him best to hit.Interesting tactic, indeed.
When it comes to picking the right piece of equipment player have their own methods--some stranger than others--to help them pick the right stuff. Sometimes its something simple like getting the feel for the weight of a bat and taking a few swings, and sometimes its something a lot more intimate.
Like a little tongue action.
