Brewers' Nelson rehabbing 'ahead of schedule', Cardinals' Molina retiring after '20?

Brewers ace Jimmy Nelson is “way ahead of schedule” in his rehab from shoulder surgery, reports’s Adam McCalvy.

Crew wins behind Woodruff's start, 8-run 4th

Where one rookie starter faltered, another stood strong. Brandon Woodruff put together seven solid innings in a critical series finale as the "road" Brewers knocked off the Marlins, 10-3, at Miller Park on Sunday. The clubs played in front of 24,535 fans as a total of 68,983 watched the three-game set, which was moved to Milwaukee in the wake of Hurricane Irma.

Who is Brandon Woodruff?

Brewers fans are undoubtedly, and justifiably, thrilled with Brandon Woodruff’s debut performance thus far in 2017. The rookie righty surged onto the scene last season, after previously making a bit of noise prior to 2015 as a “Prospect on the Rise” as a late-inning relief option.

Weekend Recap: Woodruff, Arcia

The Brewers pitching staff was dominant this weekend in Tampa. Across three games, the Rays only managed two runs. Unfortunately, the bats weren’t quite as strong, but the team scored enough to take two of three from the Rays, capping off a 4-2 week that stopped the recent slide. The Brewers are now only a half a game behind the division leading Cubs. Brewers Rays Friday August...

Minor League Context: Arms

Following the original April 25 Minor League Context post, and yesterday’s note on the batting environments for Brewers affiliates, it is time to look into the environments faced by system arms. I looked at pitchers with 13.0+ innings pitched thus far, which produced a smaller batch of pitchers than bats. Yet, many of the environmental factors hold across the diamond: the top prospects...
