NEWS AND NOTES
The Brewers didn’t have a very busy week on the injury or transaction front, as they continue to monitor the health of players like Jesse Winker and Rowdy Tellez, who’ve both yet to return from the injured list.
If you want to keep up some of the minor moves made last week, here’s the comprehensive list of transactions:
- 08/11/23 - Placed CF Blake Perkins on the 10-day injured list retroactive to August 10, 2023 with a left oblique strain.
- 08/11/23 - Recalled 3B Abraham Toro from Nashville Sounds.
- 08/08/23 - Sent 1B Rowdy Tellez on a rehab assignment to Nashville Sounds.
- 08/07/23 - Activated LHP Bennett Sousa from the 60-day injured list, and optioned him to Nashville
- 08/07/23 - Transferred LHP Justin Wilson from the 15-day injured list to the 60-day injured list with a left lat strain.
Andruw Monasterio just keeps on hitting. The Rookie collected eight hits this past week, including two home runs and a stolen base.
Mark Cahna hasn’t had the start for which he might have hoped with the Brewers, but he did deliver in the clutch on two separate occasions last week. Both hits were go-ahead doubles in extra innings, and the Brewers ended up winning both games. Not bad for timely hitting.
The Brewers currently sit at their largest division lead of the season heading into their off-day Monday, with both the Cubs and Reds 3.5 games back. They’ll finish up their long road trip with sets against two of the top teams in baseball this year, the Dodgers and Rangers. The schedule will loosen up again after that, as they return home to face the Twins in the following week, but the Brewers will look to keep the streak of good play going against stronger teams.
