  • Brewers' Devin Williams: Earns first save

    Williams picked up his first save of the year Saturday against the Cubs, striking out and allowing two hits in a scoreless ninth inning.

    It wasn't the cleanest of innings for Williams in his first outing of the year, but he got the job done. After allowing a pair of singles to start the inning (one of which deflected off him), he got Cody Bellinger to ground into a double play before striking out Miles Mastrobuoni to end the game.

  • Brewers' Brandon Woodruff: Strong six innings in season debut

    Woodruff took a no decision Saturday despite a strong start in which he allowed one run on three hits and a walk in six innings while striking out eight.

    Woodruff left the game with his team trailing, but it's hard to blame him for that fact. He didn't allow more than one baserunner in any inning, with the Cubs' lone run coming on a sixth-inning solo shot by Ian Happ. It was an excellent start to the year for Woodruff, who cruised to a 3.05 ERA last season even while missing time due to Raynaud's syndrome. He's lined up to return to the mound at home next Friday against the Cardinals.

  • Brewers' Justin Wilson: Shifts to 60-day injured list

    Wilson (elbow) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Saturday.

    The move has no impact on Wilson's return timeline, as he isn't expected to be back from Tommy John surgery until the second half of the season. The transaction clears space on Milwaukee's 40-man roster for the team to select Joey Wiemer's contract.

  • Brewers' Jesse Winker: Hits bench against lefty

    Winker is not in the lineup against lefty Justin Steele and the Cubs on Saturday.

    Winker served as the designated hitter on Opening Day and hit second, but he finished the day 0-for-4 with three strikeouts. Given that his career wRC+ against righties (136) is nearly 50 points higher than his mark against lefties (87), it's likely he won't receive many starts against opposing southpaws. Luke Voit will be the DH on Saturday.

  • Brewers' Joey Wiemer: Set for MLB debut

    Wiemer was called up Saturday and will bat ninth and play center field against the Cubs.

    Wiemer missed out on the Opening Day roster but didn't have to wait long for a call-up, as Luis Urias (hamstring) got injured on Opening Day. Wiemer recorded a .762 OPS in 84 games for Double-A Biloxi while striking out 30.2 percent of the time, but he improved to an .888 OPPS and 19.5 percent strikeout rate in 43 games for Triple-A Nashville. He added 32 steals between the two stops. He could be set to fill the short side of a platoon in center field with Garrett Mitchell, though it will take a few more games to figure out exactly how the Brewers plan on dividing up their outfield at-bats.

  • Brewers' Garrett Mitchell: Out of lineup

    Mitchell will not start Saturday against the Cubs.

    Mitchell hit seventh and played center field on Opening Day but went 0-for-4 with a pair of strikeouts. Joey Wiemer will make his MLB debut in center field Saturday.

  • Brewers' Brice Turang: Sits against lefty

    Turang will hit the bench Saturday against the Cubs.

    Turang made his MLB debut in the season opener Thursday, going 1-for-3. Owen Miller will take over at the keystone with lefty Justin Steele starting for the Cubs. A strict platoon may be the plan going forward at the position.

  • Brewers' Luis Urias: May miss eight weeks

    Urias was placed on the injured list Saturday with a hamstring strain which could keep him out for eight weeks, Adam McCalvy of reports.

    Urias suffered the injury on Opening Day, and it's evidently a fairly serious one. He's been given a timetable of six-to-eight weeks, with the Brewers expecting him to fall on the latter end of that range. Mike Brosseau will take over at third base Saturday, but Brian Anderson, who starts in right field, could wind up being the primary option against righties. That would open up more at-bats for Brewers outfielders, including Joey Wiemer, who was recalled to take Urias' spot on the roster.

  • Brewers' Luis Urias: Could head to injured list

    Urias (hamstring) could be headed to the injured list, Adam McCalvy of reports.

    Urias was removed Thursday with a left hamstring injury, and it has been reported that the Brewers will call up Joey Wiemer before Saturday's game against the Cubs. That would allow the Brewers to move Brian Anderson to third base while Wiemer would likely be the regular in right field. Should Urias be placed on the IL, he wouldn't be eligible to return until April 10, at the earliest.

  • Brewers' Joey Wiemer: Receiving promotion

    The Brewers will promote Weimer to the major-league roster before Saturday's game against the Cubs, Robert Murray of reports.

    Wiemer came up short of making the Opening Day roster, but he'll receive a promotion to Milwaukee after missing just the first game of the year. The 23-year-old outfielder showed well in spring training, and he hit 21 homers with an .801 OPS for Double-A Biloxi and Triple-A Nashville in 2022 while stealing 31 bases. Because of his power/speed potential, Wiemer is definitely a prospect with fantasy upside if he secures a regular role.

  • Brewers' Gus Varland: Logs first career strikeout

    Varland threw a scoreless inning out of the bullpen Thursday against the Cubs, striking out a batter and allowing two hits and a walk.

    Varland struck out Miles Mastrobuoni, the first batter he saw in his MLB career, before getting himself into and out of a bases-loaded situation in the seventh. The 26-year-old reliever has experience starting in the minors and will likely be used in a multi-inning role out of the bullpen this season.

  • Brewers' Brice Turang: Records first hit in MLB debut

    Turang went 1-for-3 with a single during the Brewers' 4-0 loss to the Cubs on Thursday.

    Turang wasted no time getting his first career MLB hit, reaching on an infield single in his first at-bat during the third inning. It also gave the 23-year-old infielder a chance to showcase his elite speed, which could translate into a good amount of stolen bases in 2023.

  • Brewers' Corbin Burnes: Gets hit around in '23 debut

    Burnes (0-1) gave up four earned runs on four hits and three walks while striking out three over five innings during Thursday's loss to the Cubs.

    Burnes started off solid through two innings Thursday, but then allowed four runs in the third inning, which proved to be all that Chicago needed to secure the win. Burnes' three strikeouts also ties his career low (in a start) and adds to an uncharacteristic outing for the former NL Cy Young Award winner.

  • Brewers' Luis Urias: Injures hamstring

    Urias suffered a left hamstring injury Thursday versus the Cubs, Adam McCalvy of reports.

    The Brewers expect to have an update on the third baseman either Friday or Saturday, so Urias could miss Game 2 of the season-opening series on Saturday. Urias went 0-for-4 on Opening Day.
