Brewers late rally falls short, swept by Cardinals with 5-2 loss

Thames homers in the loss

The St. Louis Cardinals came into today’s action looking to sweep the Milwaukee Brewers. Brewers’ nemesis and former ace, Adam Wainwright got the start for the Cardinals. The Brewers countered with Jhoulys Chacin.

The first inning got off to a very positive start for the Brewers and Eric Thames, who launched his fifth dinger of the year on a pitch up and over the plate. The Brewers took the early lead 1-0, but that would be the end of the scoring off...

Report: Brewers sign Gio Gonzalez to one-year deal

The contract will include $2 million in base salary and up to $2 million more in incentives

Sometimes, David Stearns does the predictable thing instead of coming out of nowhere with a crazy signing or trade.

This would be one of those times.

Ken Rosenthal reports the Brewers have signed left-hander Gio Gonzalez to a one-year, $2 million deal that could pay the veteran starter another $2 million in incentives.

Game Thread #26: Milwaukee Brewers (13-12) @ St. Louis Cardinals (14-9)

Jhoulys Chacin (2-2, 5.92 ERA) vs. Adam Wainwright (1-2, 4.74 ERA)

The Milwaukee Brewers are 5-10 in their last fifteen games played after getting off to a blistering start. They are also in danger of being swept in a series for the second time this season, but this time by the St. Louis Cardinals. Jhoulys Chacin will look to stop the bleeding as he takes the mound this afternoon to face off with long time Brewers’ nemesis, Adam Wainwright.

The Brewers will send out a lineup that does not...

Report: Brewers 'front-runner' to sign Gio Gonzalez

The Brewers are the “front-runner” to land free agent starter Gio Gonzalez, according to Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic (via Twitter). They’re one of a variety of teams that make conceptual sense for the southpaw, who just opted out of his deal with the Yankees. Gonzalez spent time with the Milwaukee organization late last season after being acquired from the Nationals. He was solid down the stretch but scuffled in the postseason. While the club got what it bargained for, it never...

Report: Brewers ‘front-runner’ to sign Gio Gonzalez

The Milwaukee Brewers are reportedly emerging as the favorite to land former New York Yankees left-handed pitcher Gio Gonzalez. Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reported Wednesday morning that the Brewers “have emerged as the front-runner” for Gonzalez’s services. The 33-year-old veteran had a minor-league contract with the Yankees with an opt-out clause that he used, forcing the Yankees to either roster him in the big leagues or let him walk. They opted to let him walk, and his services...

Brewers reportedly the favorite to sign Gio Gonzalez

Gio Gonzalez is said to be drawing interest from multiple teams since he was granted his release from the New York Yankees this week, and the Milwaukee Brewers may be at the top of the list of potential suitors for the left-hander. Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reported on a Wednesday that the Brewers have “emerged as the front-runner” for Gonzalez. The Brewers have been linked to several big names on the free agent pitching market, as there has also been talk about them potentially...

Brewers to sign Gio Gonzalez

The Brewers have agreed to a deal with lefty Gio Gonzalez, according to Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic (via Twitter). He’ll earn $2M for his work the rest of the season with up to $2M more in available incentives. Gonzalez, who recently moved to CAA Baseball, triggered an opt-out clause in the minor-league deal he signed late in camp with the Yankees. When the New York club declined to add him to its MLB roster, Gonzalez returned to the open market. While his new contract won’t come with...

Gio Gonzalez signs one-year deal with Brewers

It did not take Gio Gonzalez long to find a new home after he was granted his release from the New York Yankees this week, and his newest opportunity will allow him to pitch in the majors again. Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports that Gonzalez has signed a one-year, $2 million deal with the Milwaukee Brewers. Gonzalez had mulled offer from multiple teams, but Rosenthal notes that the Brewers likely appealed to the left-hander because he will have an opportunity to start. Gonzalez went 2-1...

Cardinals take it late as Brewers fall 4-3

Travis Shaw coming out of his slump with a two homer game

The Brewers and Cardinals matched up AGAIN for the second of three at Busch Stadium and the results were disappointing. Kyle Davies pitches relatively well for the Brewers; but could not go deep in the game. He gave up two runs over 4.2 innings. Daniel Ponce de Leon took the mound for the first time this season for St. Louis. He pitched well too, and got an assist early.

In the top of the first Christian Yelich walked. Ryan Braun...

Zach Davies (2-0, 1.19 ERA) vs. Daniel Ponce de Leon (0-0, 0.00 ERA)

The Milwaukee Brewers started the year with a 8-2 record in their first ten games. Since then the Pirates and Cardinals have brushed past them in the NL Central standings, and the Brewers have won only 5 out of 14 games in that time span. Here is hoping that tonight begins a new stretch of winning more than losing. The Brewers have their best pitcher to this point in the season going for them in Zach Davies. The St. Louis...

Brewers send Adrian Houser back to Triple-A, call up Tyler Saladino

Milwaukee brings up some infield reinforcements with Mike Moustakas still ailing

It turns out Adrian Houser’s stay in the Milwaukee Brewers rotation was a short one.

The Brewers sent down the young right-hander today after his 4+ inning start that saw him give up 5 runs on 9 hits Monday night. They’ll likely figure out who ends up taking that turn in the rotation in a few days, because in the mean time they’re making a move to help cover another unknown situation in the status of Mike...

This Christian Yelich statistic is pretty outrageous

Clearly, being the reigning National League MVP isn’t enough for Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Christian Yelich. While there’s still about five months of baseball left before writers are tasked with voting for Senior Circuit’s best player, the 27-year-old is already making a case to win the award again. As he enters Tuesday’s game against the St. Louis Cardinals, Yelich is slashing .337/.439/.820 with 13 home runs, 31 RBI and 23 runs scored. That’s produced a 210 wRC+ and 2.0 fWAR...

Big inning helps Cardinals blow out Brewers, 13-5

Four homers by the Brewers not even close to enough to prop up the pitching staff.

Box Score

Another day, another hole dug by the starting pitcher that the Milwaukee Brewers just couldn’t climb out of. Adrian Houser toed the slab making his first career MLB start and was shaky to say the least. He allowed a hit and a walk in the first, but managed to get through scoreless. Three more hits in the second plated the game’s first run, making it 1-0. Another hit in a scoreless third inning....

Milwaukee Brewers interested in bringing back Gio Gonzalez, per report

He officially became a free agent today.

It was reported over the weekend that Gio Gonzalez was going to opt out of his minor league contract with the Yankees, and today New York officially announced that they were releasing Gonzalez back into free agency. According to Andy Martino of SNY, the market for Gonzalez now is expected to be more robust than it was over the winter. Two teams that are interested in acquiring the services of the veteran left-hander so far are the New York Mets and...

Junior Guerra put on bereavement list, Donnie Hart optioned for Adrian Houser, Jake Petricka

The Brewers will be without one of their best relievers for the series in St. Louis

When we learned Jake Petricka was being recalled again despite not being down in the minors for the requisite 10 days, we knew another pitcher would have to miss some time. Now we know who, and it’s a reminder that these guys are human beings with families, and not just entertainers or baseball-playing machines.

The team announced ahead of tonight’s game that Junior Guerra will be headed to the...
