  • Brewers' Blake Perkins: Two hits, steal in loss

    Perkins went 2-for-4 with a stolen base in Tuesday's 3-0 loss to the Blue Jays.

    Perkins was the only Brewer with multiple hits in the contest. He's surged at the plate with seven multi-hit efforts and five extra-base hits over his last 12 contests, going 16-for-42 (.381) in that span. The outfielder is up to a .259/.330/.389 slash line with seven steals, five home runs, 21 RBI and 33 runs scored through 215 plate appearances, though he also has a 26.5 percent strikeout rate that could ultimately drag down his batting line in the long run. As long as he's hitting, Perkins should see a starting role in center field.

  • Brewers' Blake Perkins: Sitting Monday

    Perkins is not in the starting lineup for Monday's series opener against the Blue Jays.

    Perkins will begin Monday's game in the dugout after starting in each of the last six games. Over that span, the 27-year-old has gone 8-for-21 with two triples and two RBI. Sal Frelick will shift to center field while Jackson Chourio will start in right field against Toronto right-hander Jose Berrios.

  • Brewers' Blake Perkins: Two triples in win

    Perkins went 3-for-4 with a pair of triples, two RBI and three runs scored in Friday's 10-0 win over the Tigers.

    Perkins extended Milwaukee's lead to 3-0 in the second inning with an RBI triple, the first of his career, before driving in another run with his second three-bagger in the fifth. The 27-year-old Perkins has been swinging the bat well -- he's now 13-for-30 (.433) over his last eight games with five extra-base hits and six RBI. Overall, he's slashing .260./332/.398 across 202 plate appearances this year with five homers, 32 runs scored, 21 RBI and six stolen bases.

  • Brewers' Blake Perkins: Getting Sunday off

    Perkins is out of the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the White Sox.

  • Brewers' Blake Perkins: Goes deep Wednesday

    Perkins went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run and a double in Wednesday's 10-6 win over the Cubs.

    Perkins went yard as part of a five-run third inning for the Brewers. That homer was his first since he hit a long ball against the Cubs on May 4. He hit a poor .164 with a .388 OPS over 20 contests between homers. For the season, Perkins is slashing .232/.318/.361 with five homers, 17 RBI, 25 runs scored, five stolen bases and five doubles across 176 plate appearances while seeing a majority of the playing time in center field.

  • Brewers' Blake Perkins: Swipes two bags Friday

    Perkins went 2-for-3 with a walk, two runs scored and two stolen bases in Friday's 7-2 win over the Red Sox.

    Getting the start in center field and batting ninth, Perkins swiped his first bags in May and reached base three times, extending a hot streak that has seen him go 7-for-15 over the last six games with three walks. The 27-year-old has gained more playing time of late, but manager Pat Murphy will likely continue riding the hot hand among his outfielders, giving Perkins little job security without a longer run of success at the plate.

  • Brewers' Blake Perkins: Heads to bench amid slump

    Perkins is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Pirates.

    Perkins will head to the bench after he went 0-for-10 with four strikeouts while starting each of the final three games of the Brewers' weekend series with the Cardinals in center field. The 27-year-old is slashing just .111/.179/.222 through 10 games in May, and his ongoing struggles at the dish may start to cost him some playing time. Jackson Chourio will move back into a starting role in the outfield Monday at Perkins' expense.

  • Brewers' Blake Perkins: Not starting Thursday

    Perkins isn't in the Brewers' lineup for Thursday's game against St. Louis.

    Perkins has cooled off considerably after a hot start, slashing just .136/.208/.273 with two RBI across his last six games. His absence Thursday will move Sal Frelick into center field while Jake Bauers picks up a start in right field, batting eighth.

  • Brewers' Blake Perkins: Homers in win

    Perkins went 1-for-5 with a two-run home run during the Brewers' 7-6 win over the Yankees on Friday.

    Perkins' two-run shot in the third inning gave Milwaukee a 4-2 lead over the Yankees, helping the Brewers to an extra-inning victory. The 27-year-old has been a pleasant surprise for the Crew early in the year, slashing .313/.421/.500 through 76 plate appearances. His role as a near-everyday outfielder will come to an end once Christian Yelich (back) returns from the injured list, but Perkins' recent production could allow him to enter the lineup somewhat regularly even after Yelich is healthy.

  • Brewers' Blake Perkins: Moving into regular role

    Perkins will start in center field and bat ninth in Wednesday's game against the Padres.

    Despite going hitless with a pair of strikeouts in four at-bats in Tuesday's 6-3 loss, Perkins will remain in the lineup for a fifth straight game. Perkins owns an .895 OPS over 38 plate appearances on the season and looks poised to maintain a near-everyday role in the Milwaukee outfield while Christian Yelich (back) is on the injured list.

  • Brewers' Blake Perkins: Late-game heroics not enough

    Perkins went 3-for-4 with a solo home run and an additional run scored during Sunday's 6-4 loss to Baltimore.

    Perkins belted a go-ahead homer in the seventh inning off Yennier Cano. However, the Orioles immediately took back the lead in the bottom of the seventh. Still, Perkins racked up his second three-hit game of 2024 and has generated a hit in six of seven appearances. In 26 at-bats, Perkins owns a team-leading .385 batting average with a 1.082 OPS.

  • Brewers' Blake Perkins: Homers, swipes bag

    Perkins went 1-for-2 with a solo home run, two runs scored and a stolen base in Wednesday's win over Cincinnati. He also walked and was hit by a pitch in the contest.

    Perkins stole second after being hit by a pitch to open the fourth inning and then eventually came around to score Milwaukee's sixth run on a sacrifice fly from Jackson Chourio. The outfielder wasn't done yet, however, adding a solo shot off Hunter Greene in the sixth, giving him his first long ball of the season. Perkins has now hit safely in all four games he's played, racking up four RBI, five runs and two stolen bases over that stretch.

  • Brewers' Blake Perkins: Productive from No. 9 spot

    Perkins went 3-for-5 with three RBI, two runs scored and a stolen base in Tuesday's 9-5 win over Cincinnati.

    Perkins opened the scoring in the third inning with a two-run single before swiping his first bag of the year and scoring on a Christian Yelich hit. The 27-year-old switch-hitter would add a third RBI with another base hit in the sixth. It was just the third start of the season for Perkins -- he's now 5-for-13 on the year with three RBI and three runs scored after slashing .217/.325/.350 with four homers and five stolen bases through 67 games as a rookie last season. Perkins will likely remain the fourth outfielder in Milwaukee until Garrett Mitchell (hand) is ready to return from the IL.

  • Brewers' Blake Perkins: Will sit Saturday vs. Mets

    Perkins is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Mets.

  • Brewers' Blake Perkins: Starting in center field

    Perkins is starting in center field and batting sixth in Friday's opener against the Mets.

    Most of Perkins' playing time this season will probably come against lefties, and he's in the lineup Opening Day versus southpaw Jose Quintana. However, the switch-hitting Perkins was not great against left-handers in a 58-plate appearance sample last season with just a .603 OPS.

  • Brewers' Blake Perkins: Makes Opening Day roster

    Perkins has made the Brewers' Opening Day roster, Curt Hogg of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

    Perkins should see quite a bit of playing time in right field against lefties and could get some starts versus righties, too, if Garrett Mitchell (hand) isn't ready. The 27-year-old put up a .675 OPS over 168 plate appearances with the Brewers last season.

  • Brewers' Blake Perkins: Pops solo homer

    Perkins went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Thursday's win against the Cardinals.

    Perkins opened the scoring in Thursday's victory with a 390-foot solo homer off Miles Mikolas in the third inning. The 27-year-old rookie has started four of five games since returning from an oblique injury Sept. 17. Perkins is known for his glove and speed and is slashing .217/.322/.326 with three homers and five steals over 60 games.

  • Brewers' Blake Perkins: Starting in return from IL

    Perkins (oblique) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list and is starting in center field and batting ninth Sunday versus the Nationals.

    Perkins has been sidelined by the oblique injury since Aug. 11 but will rejoin the Brewers after a four-game rehab assignment. The 27-year-old has a .212/.311/.297 slash line across 56 games this season and should operate as a depth outfielder.

  • Brewers' Blake Perkins: Set for rehab games

    Perkins (oblique) was cleared to begin a rehab assignment Tuesday with Triple-A Nashville, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.

    Perkins has spent the last couple of weeks working out at the Brewers' spring training complex in Arizona and is now ready for a return to live games. The 27-year-old outfielder has been on the shelf since Aug. 11 because of a left oblique strain.

  • Brewers' Blake Perkins: Rehabbing in Arizona

    Perkins (oblique) will report to the Brewers' spring training complex in Arizona this week to continue workouts, Curt Hogg of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

    The Brewers haven't clarified where exactly Perkins stands in his recovery from the left oblique strain that has sidelined him since Aug. 11, but the fact that he's working out in Arizona and isn't being shut down from baseball activities can be taken as a positive sign. Perkins will eventually need to complete a minor-league rehab assignment before returning from the 10-day injured list, likely at some point in September. Once activated, Perkins is expected to be limited to a depth role in the Milwaukee outfield.
