Scooter Gennett: A Brewer’s Quest for Discipline

Scooter Gennett came into the season with a .300 batting average in 704 big-league plate appearance. The stat obviously has limited value, but it does suggest an ability to put a bat on a baseball. Gennett excels at it, sometimes to his detriment. The 25-year-old second baseman puts a lot of balls in play. His Z-Contact% as a Milwaukee Brewer is 91.9 and his O-Contact% is 74. Both...

StaTuesday: Brewers' Nelson on the right side of history

Jimmy Nelson is quietly having a nice year in his first full season as a member of the Milwaukee Brewers' starting rotation. With a month to go in the regular season, Nelson has a 3.81 ERA and 1.27 WHIP in 26 starts. That's a vast improvement from 2014 when in 14 games (12 starts) he had a 4.93 ERA and 1.46 WHIP. If you want to pinpoint one thing which has led to this turnaround...

Brewers vs. Reds preview

Wily Peralta says he's feeling fine, but the Milwaukee Brewers are skeptical. Peralta will try to allay any concerns and seeks a measure of improvement in the finale of this three-game set with the Cincinnati Reds on Sunday. Peralta (4-8, 4.55 ERA) leads Milwaukee with 32 wins over the past three years, but a major chunk of those victories came in 2014 when he had a career-high and...

Brewers' Davis on pace for historic month

It has been mentioned here before, but Khris Davis is having one heck of a month. In fact, Davis could join some very rare company in Milwaukee Brewers history. As August winds down, Davis leads the National League in home runs (10) in the month and is tied for the lead in RBI (23).

Taylor Jungmann and Diminishing Marginal Utility

When faced with batters on base, Milwaukee Brewers righty Taylor Jungmann goes to his sinker more and throws lower in the zone. He hasn’t given up a home run on the sinker, and the pitch produces ground balls nearly three-quarters of the time. So why doesn’t Jungmann go to the sinker more often? “What makes the sinker better is that I don’t throw it as much,” Jungmann...

Q&A with Jimmy Nelson, the Brewers emerging ace

Nelson leads Brewers hurlers in punch outs, wins, and innings, and his 3.61 ERA is as solid as his 6-foot-6, 245-pound frame. Nelson discussed his adjustments, as well as his repertoire...

Will the Brewers Make an August Trade?

With the Dodgers reportedly acquiring Chase Utley from the Phillies Wednesday, it appears a ripe time to ponder whether the Brewers will make any deals before the waiver-trade deadline at the end of August. At the beginning of the month, starter-turned-bullpen-arm Kyle Lohse looked like the most suitable candidate to be traded before September 1, although his terrible performances...

StaTuesday: Brewers' soon-to-be franchise leader in HRs, Braun could be headed for 400

With his next home run, Ryan Braun will become the Milwaukee Brewers' all-time leader in long balls with 252. After hitting a grand slam in Sunday's win over the Phillies to tie franchise legend Robin Yount at 251, Braun is almost assured -- though, as they say, of course, you can't predict ball -- of taking the top spot. He's also almost assured of holding it for a very long time...
