  1. The Milwaukee Brewers got some reinforcements over the past two days in the form of returning pitchers. Aaron Ashby was activated off the injured list on Tuesday with Trevor Gott being activated prior to Wednesday’s game. Image courtesy of © Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports Making room for Aaron Ashby and Trevor Gott, Milwaukee sent both Jason Alexander and Justin Topa to Triple-A Nashville. Ashby spent exactly one month on the injured list after experiencing inflammation in his shoulder. He returned Tuesday and made the start, going two innings. Ashby allowed just one hit while walking and striking out two apiece. The Brewers have been without Gott since August 10. His forearm was the reason he landed on the injured list, and the hope would be that the injury is behind him. Gott returns to a 4.03 ERA across 38 innings this season for Milwaukee.

  3. Getting set for a doubleheader today against the San Francisco Giants, the Milwaukee Brewers made a trio of transactions to set their roster. With an additional spot open due to the doubleheader, they activated infielder Mike Brosseau and recalled pitcher Justin Topa, while only needing to option infielder Esteury Ruiz. Image courtesy of © Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports On Tuesday Mike Brosseau began a rehab assignment with the Single-A Wisconsin Timber Rattlers. It’s traditionally been Milwaukee’s process this year to send a player to the Single-A affiliate when they’d quickly be activated. Brosseau played in two games for the Timber Rattlers, going 3-for-5, before his activation today. Justin Topa has been working towards a return all season and began pitching again in July. He joined Triple-A Nashville at the end of July and has posted a 3.71 ERA across 17 innings. Topa threw just 3 1/3 innings at the Major League level last season for Milwaukee and the 31-year-old has just 11 career-to-date. Esteury Ruiz was sent back to Triple-A after most recently being recalled on September 1. View full article

  5. Trevor Gott is pitching in the majors this season after not appearing during 2021. He owns a 4.03 ERA across 38 innings pitched. Gott has been burned by the home run but has struck out over a batter per inning. He was placed on the 15-day injured list, retroactive to August 11, with a right forearm strain. Needing to replace him in the bullpen, Milwaukee recalled Peter Strzelecki. The rookie has made eight appearances this season spanning 11 1/3 innings. He owns a solid 3.18 ERA and has yet to allow a home run. The 15/4 K/BB continues to get him more opportunities as well. Each time he’s been called upon by the big league club, he’s put up solid efforts. Justin Topa had been rehabbing with Triple-A Nashville, having yet to pitch in the majors this season. Now back to health, Milwaukee optioned him and will allow Topa to work as relief depth until they need his services at the highest level.
  6. The Milwaukee Brewers have dealt with more than their fair share of pitching injuries this season, and over the weekend the bullpen needed a reshuffling. Justin Topa was activated from the 60-day injured list and optioned to Triple-A Nashville. Peter Strzelecki was recalled and he took Trevor Gott’s spot on the active roster. Trevor Gott is pitching in the majors this season after not appearing during 2021. He owns a 4.03 ERA across 38 innings pitched.

  7. Yesterday Ethan Small made the start for Craig Counsell’s club and turned in just 3 2/3 innings. He allowed three runs on four hits and walked four while punching out three. Twins Byron Buxton led off the game with a solo shot, his 24th of the year, to notch one against Small. Looking to add some pitching depth for today’s game, Peter Strzelecki was brought back up to the big leagues. On the season he has thrown nine innings giving up four runs on nine hits. Strzelecki does have an 11/3 K/BB this season however, and his 2.51 ERA at Triple-A continues to get him looks. Milwaukee has seen plenty of pitching injuries this year, and they’re getting closer to having both Justin Topa and Jake Cousins return to the active roster. Topa has not pitched in 2022 and is currently on the 60-day injured list. His rehab assignment was transferred from the Complex League to Triple-A Nashville. Jake Cousins last pitched in the big leagues on April 30 and has been on the 60-day injured list since. His rehab assignment is just beginning and will take place with the Complex League team.
  8. Following his spot start against the Minnesota Twins yesterday, Milwaukee optioned starter Ethan Small back to Triple-A Nashville. In his place, reliever Peter Strzelecki was recalled. Both Jake Cousins and Justin Topa continued rehab assignments as well. Yesterday Ethan Small made the start for Craig Counsell’s club and turned in just 3 2/3 innings. He allowed three runs on four hits and walked four while punching out three. Twins Byron Buxton led off the game with a solo shot, his 24th of the year, to notch one against Small.

  9. Freddy Peralta last pitched for Milwaukee on May 22nd. He was eventually transferred to the 60-day injured list. Joining Triple-A Nashville to start his rehab assignment, Peralta threw two innings while giving up a single hit, a solo home run. Peralta struck out three and walked one across his 33 pitches. The Brewers will need Peralta to rejoin a rotation looking to keep Milwaukee holding serve with the St. Louis Cardinals. Woodruff and Corbin Burnes continue to do the heavy lifting, but Peralta’s 2.11 FIP is much better than the 4.42 ERA suggested he was going to contribute through the early part of this season. Justin Topa made his Major League debut in 2020 at the age of 29. He has dealt with multiple elbow issues and was shut down this spring with a right tendon flexor strain. One the 60-day injured list as well, Topa is now set to begin a rehab assignment with the Arizona Complex club. He’s flashed great strikeout stuff when healthy, and Topa worked a scoreless inning of relief with one strikeout during his 2022 debut.
  10. The Milwaukee Brewers have been hit hard on the pitching front when it comes to injuries this season. Key starters Brandon Woodruff and Freddy Peralta have both missed time, while a host of relievers have cycled through the injured list as well. Now both Peralta and Justin Topa are nearing a return as they begin rehab assignments. Freddy Peralta last pitched for Milwaukee on May 22nd. He was eventually transferred to the 60-day injured list. Joining Triple-A Nashville to start his rehab assignment, Peralta threw two innings while giving up a single hit, a solo home run. Peralta struck out three and walked one across his 33 pitches.

  11. Transaction: Brewers 40-man roster RHP Justin Topa (flexor tendon surgery on right elbow last September) began a rehab assignment with Arizona Gold in Maryvale. *** Final: Louisville (Reds) 10, Nashville 6 Via the Sounds' site, game details, and we encourage readers to review each of the affiliate write-ups as part of their Link Report routine: Sounds Fall Short in Louisville - Nashville Outslugged by Bats as Series Evens Pre-Game Media Notes / Box Score / Game Log Brice Turang's pedestrian .717 OPS seems to be one of the more misleading OPS lines in the system. Going the month of June without an extra-base hit didn't help, but as you just read in the summary, he’s hitting .302 in 16 games in July with an .849 OPS and a league-high 18 runs scored. Turang is only striking out at just under a 23% clip and has walked 34 times vs. 345 at-bats (hey, easy math!). He's playing all season at age 22 and is a rock defensively (only six errors, one in this contest). There's a reason Manager Rick Sweet gushes every chance he gets: Keston Hiura 1-for-5, one K, played left field in his Sounds return. It'll partly be Lucas Erceg's call if he wishes to return to the organization in 2023. A minor league free agent this fall, the Brewers would probably have interest in bringing him back, but he's an unlikely add to the 40-man roster. *** Final: Pensacola (Marlins) 7, Biloxi 5 Errors Doom Shuckers In 7-5 Loss - Frelick Records Three Hits, Mitchell & Wiemer Both Drive in Two Pre-Game Media Notes / Box Score / Game Log Plenty of game details at that summary link, but the real focus here is on the outfield duo of Sal Frelick and Garrett Mitchell. Mitchell gets the available video love below, but Frelick's just been a monster as well. The pair combined for four doubles. The drought of not having home-grown position players in the big-league lineup is going to end, and it's going to do so in a big way. So much faith and confidence in VP of Amateur Scouting Tod Johnson right now. You'll find out why "double" is in quotes in the tweet below: Honestly, we tend to get hung up on wins and losses here, when a game like this reminds us of what it's all about. High-end talent from within is so critical to this organization, that's not news. *** Postponed: Beloit (Marlins) at Wisconsin, rain Rattlers Game Postponed on Saturday - Wisconsin to host Sky Carp in doubleheader on Sunday DVR Reminder for locals: Sunday’s twinbill will be broadcast on CW-14 in Northeastern Wisconsin starting at 1:00 PM. Marvel Iron Man Jersey Auction Ends Early Sunday Evening! *** Final: Carolina 3, Down East (Rangers) 1 Mendez Hits Leadoff Blast in 3-1 Carolina Victory - Hendry Mendez extended his hitting streak to 12 straight while going 2-for-3 with a home run Pre-Game Media Notes / Box Score / Game Log There may be a difference in OPS of .280 points, but we should start considering more strongly that RF Hendry Mendez is the Robin to Jackson Chourio's Batman, or if not quite 1B to Chourio's 1A, then how about 1C? (Chourio's on his own planet.) It was seven starts ago on June 9th when we last saw RHP Edwin Jimenez this effective, that was five innings of shutout ball. RHP Michele Vassalotti recorded just one out, but it was the key out of the game, stranding two Jimenez baserunners in the 6th. Remarkably, this is 23-year-old Venezuelan catcher Jose Sibrian's 7th season in the system. Injuries (and the lost 2020) have limited Jose to only 192 games since his 2016 debut. He's set to be one of the youngest minor league free agents on the market this fall. Perhaps the Brewers seek to bring him back. *** Final: ACL Brewers Gold 7, ACL Brewers Blue 1, seven innings as scheduled Box Score / Game Log Shortstop Ney Serrano's 2nd inning line drive single to center field was the only hit for the 13-20 Blue Man Group. Blue's only run came in the first inning on a bases loaded walk. Team Gold (17-16) was aided by eight walks and an HBP by Blue pitchers. The highlight among the Golden arms was 31-year-old rehabber Justin Topa's stint, which went HBP, GIDP, and K swinging. There's that young man again -- 18-year-old Jadher Areinamo, playing shortstop, was the only player with a multi-hit game and he walked as well. He was caught stealing for the fourth time in eight attempts this season (Last year was 5-for-9). Sunday off for the Maryvale Crews. *** Final: DSL Phillies White 8, DSL Brewers #1 Squad 4 Box Score / Game Log All ten hits for the Uno boys were singles. The three arms utilized all sport ERA's of 6.62 and above, and the team committed three errors behind those pitchers. Backup catcher Roman La Torre out of Venezuela, who only turned 17 years old in May, has appeared in 14 games this summer. This was his 2nd with multiple hits, as he posted a 3-for-4 line. He's a LH bat. Switch-hitting CF Luis Lara, just 17, still has the top offensive numbers on the team, though his gaudy .338/.383/.527 June has molded into a .264/.317/396 line in July. *** Final: DSL Twins 6, DSL Brewers #2 Squad 1 Box Score / Game Log Coming off five innings of shutout ball in his last outing, RHP Daniel Corniel was hit hard here, surrendering all six runs in his four innings. This team's breakout star, 2nd year Venezuelan corner OF/1B Yeison Perez, doubled, singled, and drove in the only run for his club. Video game line is at .321/.389/.691 in just 81 at-bats. Perez was idle from June 22nd to July 4th, He posted a ridiculous 1.392 OPS in June, and in a similar number of July at-bats, it's a still-respectable .785. Shoutout to leadoff man and recently-turned 18-year-old second baseman Demetrio Nadal as the Dominican native singled twice and stole his 12th base in 13 attempts. Guess what? The Dominican League is having its All-Star Game Sunday! We won't know the Brewers participants until we see the box score, which will be available at the usual Dominican League link we provide below. *** Well, we learned that it's the folks in Louisville, Kentucky and not Zebulon, North Carolina who will see Freddy Peralta's first rehab outing. Missed opportunity, Brewers! That game will run concurrent to the Crew's big-league affair, so surely, we'll get updates from the Bally Sports team. But another reason to get that rather inexpensive MiLB.TV subscription! It was supposed to be an Ethan Small day for the Sounds, so we'll see if it's Small who piggy-backs on Freddy's outing. As for the rest of Sunday's action, Biloxi has the evening to themselves if you wish to check out Sal, Garrett, Joey and the men in Shuckerville. Stay cool and hydrated folks, we are looking at a record 100-degree day in my southeastern Massachusetts locale today.

  12. The Sounds and Shuckers combined to surrender 17 runs and commit six errors. Although the Mudcats only plated three runs of their own, they played clean defense and saw strong pitching lead to victory. The Timber Rattlers learned Mother Nature is undefeated - when she says you can play, you play, and when she says you can't, you don't.
