BREWERS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Milwaukee Brewers trade rumors: starting pitching edition

The Milwaukee Brewers are nearly half way through the 2017 and they are 41-39 in their first 80 games, which is good enough to lead the National League Central by the Chicago Cubs by one game. Their starting pitching staff has pitched well but the starting pitching who has performed the best for Milwaukee is Chase Anderson but after his start tonight, he was on the disabled list...

Brewers To Place Chase Anderson On Disabled List

The Brewers will put right-hander Chase Anderson on the 10-day disabled list, tweets MLB.com’s Adam McCalvy. Milwaukee announced tonight that Anderson exited his start with a strained left oblique muscle that he suffered on a swing at the plate. McCalvy adds that Anderson is facing a “long absence” and notes that the righty said he felt as if he’d been stabbed in the side...

Kris Bryant forced to leave game after rolling ankle stepping on third base

The Cubs apparently used up just about all 108 years worth of karma during the 2016 World Series comeback, because this followup season has been a major disappointment.Things had apparently hit a new low today with the release of veteran backup catcher Miguel Montero in the wake of Montero’s ill-advised (but accurate) comments to the media regarding Jake Arrieta’s difficulty...

Another Reason the Brewers Sit in First Place

Give this to the Brewers — as much as everyone still expects them to fade, they haven’t faded yet. They’ve played at least .500 baseball in April, May, and June, and they’ve held at least a share of first place in the National League Central for more than a month. Sure, the Cubs remain the favorites. Sure, the Cubs are the more talented ballclub. But the Brewers have effectively...

Brewers Baserunning and Sprint Speed

Last season, the Brewers led all of baseball in stolen bases by a considerable amount. They were not, however, a particularly good baserunning team, at least according to BP’s BRR statistic, which calculates overall value contributed by baserunning rather than just being limited to stolen base percentage. In 2016, according to BRR, the Brewers were 15th in the majors in baserunning...

The Milwaukee Brewers need to take advantage of weak division.

The National League Central has proven to be far below the expectations of the 2017 season. The Chicago Cubs won 103 games and let’s not forget the World Series a season ago. This year the Cubs have yet to show what its obvious talent can do. The Pirates and Cardinals have no offense. The NL Central is sitting there for the taking. Milwaukee is not respected by anyone in the media...

Naming Contending Brewers Stars

The Brewers have spent 36 days in first place this 2017 season, which is perhaps one of the biggest surprises of the MLB campaign. Even those analysts and fans that felt the rebuild and develop campaign was on the right track hardly thought the Brewers would be competitive in the vast majority of cases. Many analysts called the Brewers “interesting” without taking the leap to...

The Juiced Ball and You

The Brewers are fun! And one of the main reasons they’re fun is all of the massive dingers they hit. Keon Broxton has been Aaron Judge-lite over the past several days, and Travis Shaw has been routinely destroying baseballs. As of this writing the Brewers have clubbed 98 home runs, tied for 5th in all of baseball, but while we all love massive dingers, I would like  to briefly...

Brewers' Arcia makes ridiculous play to secure one-run victory

The Milwaukee Brewers have been one of baseball’s biggest surprises this season, featuring a roster that doesn’t exactly jump at you on paper, but keeps finding ways to win games.On Wednesday night at Miller Park, it appeared the Pittsburgh Pirates were about to tie the game with two outs in the top of the ninth when 22-year-old shortstop Orlando Arcia came out of nowhere to...

Hader’s Gonna… Join Milwaukee’s Bullpen

In addition to calling up stud center-field prospect Lewis Brinson, Milwaukee also recently summoned talented lefty and KATOH crush Josh Hader. Although Hader’s worked primarily as starter in the minors, the Brewers plan to use him out of the bullpen for the time being. A 19th-round pick out of high school, Hader’s been exceeding expectations for years. He owns a 3.87 FIP and...

Is it too early to call the Milwaukee Brewers contenders?

The Milwaukee Brewers are still on top of the National League Central division with about a month to go before the All-Star Game. It has been a weird start to the year in the NL Central to say the least with the lowest payroll in the MLB leading what was a tough division in 2016. However, is it too early to gauge whether Milwaukee has a real shot at winning the division. I think...
