Norichika Aoki adept at putting balls in play

In baseball, strikeouts happen. Every player strikes out, some more than others. But no player in baseball has been harder to strike out this season than Brewers right fielder Norichika Aoki. Entering play Friday, Aoki has struck out every 17.9 at-bats this season, by far the best in baseball, as San Francisco's Marco Scutaro is second at 14.5 and Miami's Placido Polanco...

Brewers' Corey Hart likely out until mid-July

The target date for Corey Hart's return from offseason knee surgery keeps getting pushed back, delaying the return of Milwaukee's starting first baseman. While Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said last week Hart was at least three weeks away from returning to the Brewers, general manager Doug Melvin was less optimistic on his weekly radio show on 620 WTMJ in Milwaukee. The...

Video: Norichika Aoki snubs fan of souvenir

Your browser does not support iframes.Milwaukee Brewers right fielder Norichika Aoki wasn't in the giving mood Friday night.This much can be assumed after Aoki snubbed a Reds fan of a souvenir.The moment occurred in the bottom of the 10th inning when Brandon Phillips hit a lazy foul ball high into the air and near the first base stands. Aoki tracked it down and made the catch...

Brewers' Alfredo Figaro making a case for starter's role

Alfredo Figaro is making it awfully hard on his manager. With Marco Estrada soon to return from the disabled list and Chris Narveson and Hiram Burgos out on rehab assignments, it seemed only a matter of time before Figaro returned to the bullpen. But Figaro isn't going to go quietly. The right-hander tossed seven shutout innings, allowing just three hits for his first major...

Brewers' rebuilt bullpen is holding its own

MILWAUKEE -- It's nearly impossible to figure out how a major league bullpen is going to fare. Relievers as individuals are unpredictable enough, but as a group they can be puzzling. Established relievers can have bad stretches, simply because it's real easy for a pitcher working just one inning to have a bad, ERA-inflating outing. Last season, the Brewers had a bullpen...

Brewers hope to have Ryan Braun back in starting lineup this weekend

Ryan Braun's ailing hand has once again kept him out of a game.  Braun was not in the starting lineup last night, but he was available as a pinch-hitter.  The Milwaukee Brewers destroyed the Marlins, though, and did not need to have Braun hit.  The All-Star outfielder is frustrated, but the team is hoping to have him back in the starting lineup by the weekend. According...

Brewers' new-look rotation off to shaky start

The Milwaukee Brewers had plenty of questions about their starting rotation before the season. Veterans Zack Greinke, Shaun Marcum and Randy Wolf were no longer on the team. The left the Brewers with Yovani Gallardo, young but promising Chris Narveson and Marco Estrada, and a handful of other prospects. The build-from-within approach was considered risky for the Brewers, but not...

Brewers' Corey Hart could be out until All-Star break

There was a point when Milwaukee Brewers first baseman Corey Hart was hoping to be back from his knee surgery in April. This has obviously long passed, and general manager Doug Melvin said today during his WTMJ radio segment that Hart may not be back until after the All-Star break, according to Tom Haudricourt of The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. #Brewers GM Doug Melvin said on...

Brewers bet on former UWM pitcher Josh Uhen

MILWAUKEE -- Instead of huddling his entire family around a tiny computer screen to watch the draft, Josh Uhen decided to connect the laptop to the family television. It was going to be much easier to wait out the long draft that way. But as it turns out, Uhen didn't have to wait very long. As the first-year player draft moved into the fifth round last Friday afternoon, Uhen...

Gomez powers Brewers over Marlins

Carlos Gomez added another impressive offensive performance during his breakout season. Gomez had four hits, including two triples, drove in three runs, and scored three runs to lead the Milwaukee Brewers to a 10-1 win over the Miami Marlins on Wednesday. ''He had a very big night, two triples,'' said Jonathan Lucroy, who drove in four runs. ''Anytime you...

Figaro still looking for first win as starter this season

With slugger Giancarlo Stanton back in the lineup, the Miami Marlins may be poised to continue their recent success. After having a hand in ending the Milwaukee Brewers' winning streak, Stanton tries to help the Marlins post back-to-back series wins for the first time in a year Wednesday night. Stanton is 2 for 8 in two games since his return from missing more than a month with...

Brewers 10, Marlins 1

Carlos Gomez had four hits, including two triples, and Jonathan Lucroy drove in four runs to lead the Milwaukee Brewers to a 10-1 win over the Miami Marlins on Wednesday. Gomez also drove in three runs and scored three runs. Jean Segura homered for the Brewers, who have won five of six. Alfredo Figaro (1-0) pitched seven scoreless innings to earn his first victory since Sept. 26...

Betancourt, Chapman, and the Sordid Business of Defection

(Image: AP/David J. Phillip) This weekend’s three-game series between the Reds and Brewers includes two players – Yuniesky Betancourt and Aroldis Chapman – who took a more tortured path than most to the big leagues.  Both are Cuban players who defected from their home country to play professionally in the United States. As someone of Cuban heritage, I’m particularly...

Buy or Sell: Jean Segura, James Loney

Alorrigan So you've done the impossible and gotten a couple of players early this year and for a cheap price. Now, they are overachieving. You're so proud of yourself for seeing what others could not, you think you should make a deal. That's not a bad idea. Especially if you are in need in certain areas. Maybe you aren't really relying on a player that has blossomed...

Marlins 5, Brewers 4

Giancarlo Stanton hit his first homer since coming off the disabled list, a two-run drive with two outs in the eighth inning that lifted the Miami Marlins to a 5-4 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers on Tuesday night. With Juan Pierre on first, Stanton connected on the first pitch from Jim Henderson (2-2), sending a drive over the wall in left-center. It was his fourth home run this...
