MILWAUKEE -- Brewers center fielder Lorenzo Cain was in Los Angeles on Tuesday morning to undergo cryotherapy on his right thumb, the same procedure that has helped teammate Ryan Braun in recent years to overcome a shooting pain from an overactive nerve in his hand. Cain has quietly been dealing

MILWAUKEE -- Ethan Small would rather this date have been delayed, of course. But less than a week after his Mississippi State University Bulldogs were bounced from the College World Series in Omaha, Small looked around Miller Park and was ready for the future.

It feels sometimes that half the fun of a Home Run Derby is imagining who isn’t there. Even at their best, we map our hopes and memories on every T-Mobile Home Run Derby, trying to envision what it would look like if prime Mark McGwire were there, or Babe Ruth

Inbox: Are Brewers targeting starter in trade?

Beat reporter Adam McCalvy answers questions from Milwaukee fans
@AdamMcCalvy
June 24, 2019

Is this the year general manager David Stearns makes a significant trade for a starter? -- @rod2518 on Twitter If not this year, then when? It’s hard to trade for an impact starter, and even harder to pick the guy who will actually make a difference. For every CC Sabathia

MILWAUKEE -- The Brewers went six up, six down with six swinging strikeouts to begin Sunday’s series finale against Reds right-hander Anthony DeSclafani. As Travis Shaw strode to the plate to lead off the bottom of the third inning, the math was on DeSclafani’s side to keep the streak alive.

Fifteen teams will enter the upcoming week with winning records, but few have established themselves as a cut above the rest of the Major Leagues. There aren't any surprises there -- with just a few games left until we reach the true halfway point of the season, most of the

Crew's ASG hopefuls make splash vs. Reds

@AdamMcCalvy
June 22, 2019

MILWAUKEE -- It was a pretty good start for the Brewers’ trio of All-Star Game hopefuls. The guy who wrote the lineup, too. A five-game losing streak was as good a time as any to shake things up in the lineup, so manager Craig Counsell tried something new on Saturday,

@AdamMcCalvy
June 22, 2019

MILWAUKEE -- After posting poor results in his first three starts back from shoulder surgery, Jimmy Nelson will continue his comeback in the Brewers’ bullpen.

June 22, 2019

MILWAUKEE -- The Brewers are playing their worst baseball since a similar stretch ahead of last year’s All-Star break. But someone forgot to tell Christian Yelich.

Nelson's struggles continue in loss to Reds

@AdamMcCalvy
June 21, 2019

MILWAUKEE -- Craig Counsell strode to the mound with purpose in the first inning on Thursday. Jimmy Nelson had just gone walk, single, hit batsman, walk in a four-batter span to force home a run. The manager delivered a few sharp words, then left just as quickly as he came.

@oapostrophesd
June 19, 2019

SAN DIEGO -- Yasmani Grandal's bat was in demand. The Brewers had been scuffling offensively. One of their best hitters was on the bench because of injury. No way was manager Craig Counsell going to go without another of his power threats and put Grandal on the bench just because
