Brewers Spring Training Report

By Robby White Photo By Robby White 3/18/2015 In a stroke of good luck for St. Patrick’s week, Brewers Catcher Jonathon Lucroy returned to action over the previous weekend. The original timetable for Lucroy to return from a hamstring injury was 4-6 weeks and he recovered in half that time. As I have written earlier, it was a safe bet that Lucroy would return much sooner than originally...

2015 season preview: Milwaukee Brewers

The Brewers spent 150 days in first place in 2014, but missed the playoffs entirely following one of the worst end-of-season collapses in baseball history. Now they have to try to put the memories of that collapse behind them while trying to contend in one of baseball’s toughest divisions. Will last year be a motivator for the 2015 team, or will it be the dark cloud that looms...

PHOENIX -- As has become tradition on the first day of full-squad workouts, Milwaukee Brewers owner Mark Attanasio addressed the club Thursday morning at Maryvale Baseball Park. After electing not to speak to the team at the end of last season because of the way the Brewers collapsed, Attanasio relayed the expectation he has of this year's team contending for a postseason berth....

Kevin Correia Would Look Neat on Minor League Deal

Milwaukee traded longtime starter Yovani Gallardo for three young players in January.  The Brewers saved some money in the transaction and theoretically opened up a rotation spot for Jimmy Nelson. Unfortunately, the side effect of the Gallardo deal was that it seriously weakened the starting pitching depth for the club.  The Brewers now have question marks at the sixth starter...

Nelson hopes to continue record of sophomore-year success with Brewers

To a lot of people, it may seem like Jimmy Nelson is replacing Yovani Gallardo in Milwaukee's starting rotation. Brewers manager Ron Roenicke is not one of those people. "He's not replacing Yo," Roenicke said of the right-handed Nelson. "We all are. Nelson is a guy we're going with that we expect a lot from. He's got really good make-up. He's a really aggressive guy. We're expecting...

Bullpen perhaps in flux, but Brewers turn to Nelson to start

MILWAUKEE (AP) With a month until spring training, the Brewers are minus a workhorse starting pitcher and their All-Star closer. Milwaukee seems committed to staying in-house and turning to young right-hander Jimmy Nelson to fill the spot in rotation that opened following the trade of Yovani Gallardo to the Texas Rangers. The bullpen, though, could still be a work in progress. Francisco...

GM Melvin: Brewers likely to add pitching, but not 'notable' starter

MILWAUKEE -- When the Milwaukee Brewers traded Yovani Gallardo to Texas, rumors immediately began swirling as to if the move was a precursor to either another trade or a free-agent signing.  Brewers general manager Doug Melvin quickly made it clear nothing major was on the horizon, as the club is ready to commit to young right-hander Jimmy Nelson as its fifth starter.  During the...

Milwaukee Brewers: Did they get a good deal for Yovani Gallardo?

The Milwaukee Brewers traded longtime ace Yovani Gallardo to the Texas Rangers Monday night for shortstop Luis Sardinas and pitchers Corey Knebel and Marcos Diplan. The Brewers will also pay $4 million of Gallardo’s $13 million contract.

Developing changeup could be difference between rotation and bullpen for Nelson

There was nothing left for Jimmy Nelson to prove in Triple-A when he received the call to the big leagues from the Milwaukee Brewers last July. Nelson had dominated the Pacific Coast League to the tune of a 10-2 record and a 1.46 ERA, which ended up earning him the league's pitcher of the year honors despite spending the final four months of the season in the big leagues. But the...

Fiers pleased with performance, but must prove self again next spring

MILWAUKEE -- When Mike Fiers reported to Maryvale Baseball Park in Phoenix for spring training last February, his career was hanging in the balance. Fiers was so much of a forgotten man in the organization that he pitched just two innings for the Milwaukee Brewers in spring training before he was assigned to minor-league camp in early March. Emotionally and physically, Fiers had...

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.

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.
