Brewers Tuesday: Milwaukee shifts Nelson to bullpen

MILWAUKEE -- After using a six-man rotation for one turn, the Milwaukee Brewers will drop back to the conventional five-man starting staff. The odd man out is rookie right-hander Jimmy Nelson, who will be available out of the bullpen beginning on Thursday. "He has a big arm," Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said. "We'll like to be able to give him an inning that&...

Roenicke: Brewers starters 'not pitching as well as they should be'

MILWAUKEE -- There are many reasons why the Milwaukee Brewers are suddenly collapsing with the postseason right around the corner, but a one-time strength of the ball club is near the top of the list. The starting rotation that helped propel the Brewers to their quick start to the season suddenly can't get the job done. Milwaukee's starting pitchers are 1-11 with a 6.95 ERA...

With 19 games left, Brewers retain hope of turnaround

MILWAUKEE -- Following a lackluster and downright ugly 9-1 loss to the St. Louis Cardinals at Miller Park on Sunday, the Milwaukee Brewers held a players-only meeting in the clubhouse. The message? It's time to start playing like the season is on the line. "A sense of urgency is something we need to get ahold of," Brewers catcher Jonathan Lucroy said. "We, as a...

Brewers-Cubs Preview

The Milwaukee Brewers have held at least a share of the NL Central lead for nearly the entire season but that run is in jeopardy following a dismal end to this past month. The Brewers will seek to begin September with a much-needed victory Monday against the division's cellar dweller, the Chicago Cubs, and start to build some momentum for a pivotal series later this week.

Mike Fiers Should Stay In The Brewers’ Rotation

With Matt Garza slated to return to the Milwaukee Brewers’ starting rotation in the not too distant future, manager Ron Roenicke will have to decide whether to keep Mike Fiers or Jimmy Nelson as a starter for the stretch run in September. While decisions like these can leave a manager tossing and turning at night, the choice Roenicke must make upon Garza’s return is quite clear...

Led by Ross, Padres slide past Brewers

Having already faced off against four former Cy Young Award winners in his first eight starts of the season, Jimmy Nelson already knows a thing or two about pitching opposite of the best baseball has to offer. That means he also understands how small the margin for error is against certain pitchers. Give San Diego ace Tyson Ross any kind of run support and he usually wins. Such was...

One Man’s Trash: Starting Fiers

This week's hot add was Mike Fiers (+62%). The Brewers hurler has posted a 9.5 K/9 and a 1.8 BB/9 since filling in for Matt Garza in the Milwaukee rotation. The strikeouts are no fluke, as he posted a K/9 of 11.4 in Triple-A this season. While his FIP is a run higher than his current ERA and Steamer is projecting a 3.60 ERA from this point forward, Fiers remains a great pickup...

Nelson, Brewers fail to 'get it done' in setback to Blue Jays

MILWAUKEE -- The Milwaukee Brewers were one out away from escaping the fifth inning with the lead, one out away from keeping the game tied in the sixth and one out away from entering their last at-bat trailing by just two runs.

Blue Jays slug their way to victory, end Brewers' win streak at 5

  The Toronto Blue Jays are heading home with a sense of relief. Outslugging one of the best teams in the National League can ease the sting of a 2-6 road trip. Jose Bautista's three-run homer capped a five-run sixth inning and Toronto snapped the Milwaukee Brewers' five-game winning streak with a 9-5 victory Wednesday. It's time to start chipping away again in the American...

Fiers Burning Brightly for Brewers

The idea that starting pitching depth wins championships should surprise no one. While the front of the Brewers’ rotation appears capable of matching up with any team in the National League, it remains to be seen whether the back of the staff can hold suit. To that end, Milwaukee recently returned Mike Fiers to the big-league rotation. The right-hander has impressed so far, posting...

Loss ends, but doesn't spoil successful Brewers homestand

MILWAUKEE -- Runs are at a premium when facing a pitcher like Clayton Kershaw, making each baserunner valuable.
