  • Brewers' Blake Perkins: Hits grand slam Saturday

    Perkins went 2-for-4 with a grand slam, an additional run scored and an additional RBI during Saturday's 10-8 victory over the Reds.

    Perkins was recalled from Triple-A Nashville on Saturday and was thrown right into the starting lineup, batting ninth and playing right field. He recorded only one hit across 10 appearances (12 at-bats) during his first stint in the big leagues in April, so his offensive outburst versus Cincinnati is certainly noteworthy. The 26-year-old figures to provide depth to Milwaukee's outfield while Tyrone Taylor (elbow), Jesse Winker (neck) and Garrett Mitchell (shoulder) are unavailable, but Perkins isn't guaranteed regular starts, as Christian Yelich, Joey Wiemer and Brian Anderson will presumably man the outfield on a regular basis.

  • Brewers' Blake Perkins: Recalled from Triple-A

    Milwaukee recalled Perkins from Triple-A Nashville on Saturday.

    The 26-year-old will give the Brewers some much-needed outfield depth with Tyrone Taylor (elbow) joining Jesse Winker (neck) and Garrett Mitchell (shoulder) on the injured list. Perkins has hit the ball well this year at the Triple-A level, but he's gone 1-for-12 with five strikeouts and zero walks in 10 major-league games.

  • Brewers' Blake Perkins: Sent to Triple-A

    The Brewers optioned Perkins to Triple-A Nashville on Monday, Adam McCalvy of reports.

    The team hasn't announced a corresponding move, but it could mean Tyrone Taylor (elbow) will return from the injured list Tuesday. Perkins went 1-for-12 at the dish in his first stint in the majors.

  • Brewers' Blake Perkins: Back to bench Tuesday

    Perkins is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Tigers.

    Perkins had started each of the Brewers' last three games, but he went just 1-for-8 with four strikeouts during that stretch and will now head to the bench. The Brewers have a long-term opening in the outfield with Garrett Mitchell (shoulder) soon set to undergo what could be a season-ending surgery, but Perkins hasn't made an early case to receive a regular role.

  • Brewers' Blake Perkins: Gets third straight start

    Perkins will start in left field and will bat eighth in Monday's game against the Tigers.

    The switch-hitting Perkins will stick in the lineup for the third game in a row, this time facing off against a lefty (Matthew Boyd) after going 1-for-5 with a run scored across a pair of starts versus right-handers (Garrett Whitlock and Brayan Bello) over the weekend. The Brewers seem to be giving Perkins a look as an everyday player in the outfield in the wake of Garrett Mitchell's (shoulder) long-term absence, but Perkins is still expected to have a short leash and will need to begin producing at the plate in order to maintain a regular role.

  • Brewers' Blake Perkins: Joining big club

    The Brewers recalled Perkins from Triple-A Nashville on Wednesday, Curt Hogg of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

    He'll be joining the big club as a replacement on the 26-man active roster for Garrett Mitchell (shoulder), who was placed on the 10-day injured list in a corresponding move. The 26-year-old Perkins received the call-up over top outfield prospect Sal Frelick, who is dealing with a jammed thumb. Over his 54 plate appearances at Nashville this season, Perkins slashed .292/.370/.417 with a home run and a stolen base. While Christian Yelich and Joey Wiemer will likely continue to handle everyday roles in the outfield, the Brewers still have an opening that could potentially go to either Perkins or Owen Miller. The switch-hitting Perkins could end up occupying the larger side of a platoon with the righty-hitting Miller.

  • Brewers' Blake Perkins: Joins Brewers roster

    The Brewers recalled Perkins from Triple-A Nashville on Wednesday, Curt Hogg of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

    Perkins takes the roster spot of Garrett Mitchell (shoulder), who went on the injured list Wednesday. Perkins, with a .787 OPS in 13 games at Triple-A this season, could see a fair number of at-bats with Milwaukee for however long Mitchell remains sidelined.

  • Brewers' Blake Perkins: Not in Wednesday's lineup

    Perkins is not in Wednesday's lineup at Triple-A Nashville, Curt Hogg of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

    It's notable because Garrett Mitchell exited Tuesday's game in Seattle with a shoulder injury and could require an IL stint. Perkins is already on the 40-man roster and could be summoned to replace him. The 26-year-old has a .787 OPS with one homer and one steal at Nashville this season.

  • Brewers' Blake Perkins: Making good impression

    Perkins is 14-for-48 (.292) with a home run, three RBI, eight runs and a stolen base through 13 games with Triple-A Nashville.

    Perkins has slowed some after getting off to a fast start in his first stint with Nashville, but he has made a good deal of contact early in the campaign. He is on Milwaukee's 40-man roster, which puts him in the mix for the first call-up of his career if Garrett Mitchell (shoulder) misses any time at the big-league level.

  • Brewers' Blake Perkins: Optioned to Nashville

    Perkins was optioned to Triple-A Nashville by the Brewers on Tuesday, Adam McCalvy of reports.

    Perkins managed to score a major-league contract from Milwaukee this winter, but he will not be part of the Opening Day roster. The 26-year-old outfielder put up an .813 OPS with 15 home runs and 21 stolen bases in 101 games last season between the Double-A and Triple-A affiliates of the Yankees.

  • Brewers' Blake Perkins: Signs with Crew

    Perkins signed a one-year contract with the Brewers on Wednesday.

    After recording a .821 OPS between the Double-A and Triple-A levels in 2022, Perkins has earned his first major-league deal. He will likely begin the season in Triple-A Nashville considering he only played 30 games at that level in 2021, but he will serve as another option to play in Milwaukee's outfield at some point in 2023 following the departure of Hunter Renfroe.

  • Royals' Blake Perkins: Traded to Kansas City

    Perkins was dealt to the Royals on Monday, along with Kelvin Gutierrez and Yohanse Morel in exchange for Kelvin Herrera, Jon Morosi of MLB Network reports.

    Perkins will head to Kansas City, where he'll likely be assigned to High-A Wilmington. Through 65 games at High-A Potomac this season, he hit .234 with one homer and 21 RBI.

  • Nationals' Blake Perkins: Big day for Low-A Hagerstown

    Perkins went 4-for-5 with two doubles, four runs scored and an RBI in Low-A Hagerstown's win over Lakewood on Thursday.

    The 2015 second-round pick is showing signs of turning his impressive tools into production on the diamond. Perkins fits the mold of the prototypical Nats minor-league center fielder in the Mike Rizzo era, as he has excellent speed and defensive instincts while needing work on the offensive side of the ball, but the 20-year-old switch hitter is now slashing .286/.361/.367 through 36 games for Hagerstown this season with nine steals in 12 attempts. At 6-foot-1 but only 165 pounds, he may never develop much over-the-fence power, but he should be able to sting the ball into the gaps regularly as he matures. In a system that boasts Victor Robles and Andrew Stevenson, Perkins' future path may not take him to Washington if he does eventually crack a 25-man roster, but the organization's No. 15 prospect could move up the rankings quickly if he continues to put things together at the plate.
