  2. Crew should ride the wave, not look up
    Ride the wave, Brewers. Who knows where it'll end? Don't look up now. At this point, the worst thing you guys can do is start thinking. Just keep playing. At 16-6, the Crew is carrying the best record in baseball, and the clubhouse has to be the happiest place on earth at the moment.
  3. Thornburg wants to start, but thriving in setup role
    Brewers right-hander Tyler Thornburg still wants to be a starting pitcher in the Major Leagues, but for now, he sure looks good as a reliever.
  4. Brewers could have Rule 5 gem in lefty reliever Wang
    I got to see a lot of Brewers Rule 5 Draft pick Wei-Chung Wang during Spring Training in Maryvale, Ariz. Pitching eight of out nine outings from the bullpen, Wang was impressive. He showed an outstanding calm and cool mound demeanor that looked like he was born to pitch. Now the Brewers have a decision to make with Wang.

Pittsburgh outfielder Travis Snider was suspended for two games and catcher Russell Martin received a one-game suspension.
  11. K-Rod, bullpen fuel win, recent Brewers' run
    Wily Peralta was solid, giving up two earned runs in 6 1/3 innings, and Will Smith, Tyler Thornburg and Francisco Rodriguez -- notching his fourth save in as many days -- held on to the Brewers' one-run lead for their Major League-leading 15th win of the season, as the Brewers beat the Padres, 4-3, on Monday at Miller Park.

  13. Herrera's versatility coming up big for Brewers
    In the span of only a few days, Elian Herrera has gone from a paternity list fill-in to a vital member of the Brewers' 25-man roster. "Just be ready," Herrera said of his role. "I have to be ready wherever they need me. I have to take fly balls, I have to take ground balls, and I guess I have to catch bullpens, too."
  14. Segura dropped in Brewers' batting order
    Hoping to ease the early-season pressure on second-year shortstop Jean Segura, Brewers manager Ron Roenicke dropped him in the batting order on Monday. Segura, who usually hits second, was originally batting seventh against the Padres, but moved up to sixth when left fielder Khris Davis was scratched with an illness.
  15. Figaro joins bullpen; Kintzler getting close
    The Brewers needed a fresh bullpen arm, so they swapped Rob Wooten for Alfredo Figaro before Monday's series opener against San Diego.
