Milwaukee Brewers connected to three of MLB Pipeline’s top-30 International Free Agents

Another potentially strong international class for the Brewers.

MLB Pipeline has released this year’s top-30 International Free Agents list. According to the website, Milwaukee is the favorite to sign three of the free agents on the list. The club already has signed and developed some notable international free agents — like Orlando Arcia — and hopes to expand on its success.

Milwaukee Brewers prospect Lucas Erceg leaves game after being hit in the head with a pitch

A scary moment in Biloxi.

Milwaukee Brewers third base prospect Lucas Erceg was removed from last night’s Biloxi Shuckers game after he was struck in the head by a pitch.

Erceg was leading off the 8th inning when Montgomery Biscuits pitcher Matt Krook let one get away that struck the lefty right above the ear.

A picture of Erceg’s helmet from tonight. Note the laces imprinted around the temple. Scary stuff, hope we find out how he’s doing soon. pic.twitter.com/owXoD1LQRk

Cain looking forward to KC homecoming

There were so many memories packed into his six years in Kansas City that Lorenzo Cain has trouble picking just one.

Lorenzo Cain has been a different, better hitter in 2018

The center fielder has been worth every penny so far.

Plenty of eyebrows were raised around Milwaukee when the Brewers inked Lorenzo Cain to a five-year, $80 mil contract this past January, the largest free agent deal in franchise history. The former All-Star was about to (and has since) turn 32 years old, and the outfield was considered an area of strength coming into the offseason. Some opined that the money would have been better spent addressing what, on paper, looked like a weak...

Former MLB All-Star Davey Nelson passes away at 73

After battling a long illness, former MLB All-Star Davey Nelson has passed away at 73 years old. Over the course of his 10 year career, Nelson would play for Cleveland, the Rangers and Royals. He would become the second batter ever to take the plate for the Rangers. Additionally, in 1973, Davey would earn his first and only All-Star appearance, slashing .286/.325/.378 with 24 doubles and 43 stolen bases.Later in life, Nelson would work in some capacity for the Athletics, Expos, Cleveland and...

Davey Nelson passes away at 73

The Brewer family has lost a long-time member

Brewer broadcaster Davey Nelson has passed away at age 73. The former player and coach was a familiar face and voice on pre- and post- game telecasts, and had joined the broadcast booth as a commentator on occasion as well.

“Davey took every opportunity to turn a casual introduction into a lifelong relationship, and his legacy will live on in the positive impact he had on the lives of so many people."

Jeffress and the Ever-Critical Sixth Inning

It was clear from the outset that the sixth inning was going to be pivotal for this Brewers team. Starting pitching has been the top worry for the club since Jimmy Nelson’s injury last season, and the sixth inning is usually when things get shaky for all but the sturdiest of starters. Very often, this is when the heart of the lineup bats for the third time, and navigating them often means the difference between coasting through the game’s final third or furiously engaging in a comeback...

Weekend Recap: Aguilar and Thames

The Brewers took care of business last week. After treading water against their National League Central competition, the Milwaukee Nine had an opportunity to bank some wins and they did not disappoint. After losing the opening game of their series against the Cincinnati Reds, the Brewers closed out that series with two straight wins, then swept a four-game series against the visiting Miami Marlins. The six-game winning streak has propelled them into a tie for first place in the division with...

Bullpen of the Week: Brewers

After stumbling in Monday's opener against the Reds -- reliever Oliver Drake gave up six runs in the sixth inning -- the Brewers' pitching staff rebounded to help Milwaukee wrap the week with five consecutive wins against Cincinnati and Miami, including three shutouts. The Brewers' relief unit was a major part of that success, yielding just one unearned run during the winning streak and cementing its status as "Bullpen of the Week presented by the Hartford."

Yelich leads Crew to 6th straight win, sweep

Christian Yelich homered against his former team, helping the Brewers to a four-game sweep of the Marlins and their sixth straight win. Caleb Smith struck out 10 Brewers and allowed two hits, but they both scored in the fourth inning when Cain singled and Yelich followed with his second homer for Milwaukee. Josh Hader registered four strikeouts en route to a two-inning save.

Jeter gets defensive over tanking accusations

The Miami Marlins are bad this season. And, they’re going to keep being bad this season. In fact, they are probably going to be pretty bad for the next few seasons. But then again, everybody seems to know and understand this. Everybody, that is, except for their new owner Derek Jeter.In an interview that will air Tuesday on HBO, Bryant Gumbel would question Jeter about the Marlins' current roster. But more than that, he would grill him on tanking. And eventually, the new man in charge...

Sunday Sundries: Milwaukee Brewers Review Week 4

A “Must Week” is musted

Last week’s Sunday Sundries finished with this observation:

“This should probably be a five win week, guys and gals, even with facing Noah Syndergaard tomorrow.”

The Brewers did indeed lose the Syndergaard game, although not to Syndergaard (it was on a ninth inning walk-off by sorta/kinda ex-Brewer Wilmer Flores), and then the lowly Cincinnati Reds hit Brent Suter and Oliver Drake hard in a 10-4 Milwaukee loss on Monday. But the Crew took care of business...

Jesus Aguilar delivers walk-off blast as Brewers beat Marlins, 6-5

More strong work from the bullpen.

Box Score

Milwaukee’s starting pitchers have been performing perhaps better than expected so far this season, but that fortune didn’t extend to Brent Suter’s outing last night. The game got off to a troublesome start for the soft-tossing lefty, who allowed a solo home run to the second batter of the game, Derek Dietrich, to put the Brewers in a quick 1-0 hole. The next inning didn’t go much better, as Suter served up consecutive singles to Justin...
