July 6 - scheduled day off

Roster move made-
Drew Rasmussen recalled, J.P. Feyereisen optioned to AA

26 man roster-
Rotation = Brandon Woodruff, Brent Suter, Freddy Peralta, Corbin Burnes, Josh Lindblom
Bullpen = Josh Hader (closer), Adrian Houser (setup), Devin Williams (setup), Alex Claudio (middle), Ray Black (middle), David Phelps (middle), Chris Lee (long), Drew Rasmussen (long)
Catchers = Omar Narvaez, Manny Pina
Infielders = Justin Smoak, Keston Hiura, Eric Sogard, Luis Urias, Brock Holt, Jedd Gyorko
Outfielders = Ryan Braun, Lorenzo Cain, Avisail Garcia, Ben Gamel, Keon Broxton

DL = Christian Yelich (separated shoulder, out 2-3 weeks), Corey Knebel (torn ucl, out 12-13 months)

Other 40 man roster players (35 players)-
Pitchers = J.P Feyereisen, Eric Yardley
Catcher = David Freitas
Infielders = Orlando Arcia, Ryon Healy, Ronny Rodriguez (elbow strain, out for 5 weeks)
Outfielders = Tyrone Taylor

Logan Morrison has cleared waivers and is still on the DFA list (4 more days).

A couple more trades made-

Braves get - RHP-Junior Guerra (87 2/3 innings, 4.31 ERA, 1.55 WHIP, 3.90 FIP)
Diamondbacks get - C-Logan Brown (23 years old, in A+ - 225 PA, .225/.307/.350/.657), RHP-Nolan Kingham (23 years old, in AA - 28 2/3 innings, 2.83 ERA, 1.40 WHIP, 3.05 FIP)
Neither of the prospects are considered organizational top 30 type prospects. Will be interesting to see how Guerra fits into the Braves plans as their pitching has been top-notch and there is not an obvious spot for him. Could be that they would send Kyle Wright back to the minors (7 MLB games this season, 3 starts), he would be on pace to pass 1 year of service time, so if they send him back to the minors they would get another year out of him.

Nationals get - RHP-Matt Magill (2 1/3 innings, 0.00 ERA, 0.86 WHIP, 4.68 FIP)
Mariners get - RHP-Brian Rapp (24 years old, in A - 11 innings pitched, 3.27 ERA, 0.82 WHIP, 2.61 FIP), RHP-Erick Tejeda (18 years old, in R - 16 1/3 innings pitched, 6.06 ERA, 1.84 WHIP, 4.02 FIP), LF-Evan Lee (23 years old, in A - 70 plate appearances, .316/.397/.491/.888)
None of these guys are considered organizational top 30 type prospects. Washington's bullpen is still awful. Magill is coming off a torn triceps injury and has hardly pitched this year.

July 7 - Brewers 7, Rays 6

Brewers win the game on a walk-off, grand slam by Ryan Braun for perhaps the most dramatic and best victory all season.

The pitching matchup was Trevor Richards against Freddy Peralta. Peralta was excellent, throwing 5 1/3 innings and leaving the ballgame with a runner on first base and a 3-0 lead. Alex Claudio came into the ballgame and allowed two singles and then a grand slam to Kevan Smith, giving the Rays a 4-3 lead. The Rays tacked two more on in the 7th against Ray Black to push it to a three run lead.

Rays closer Nick Anderson came in to start the 9th and looked terrible. He hit the first two batters he faced, Ben Gamel and pinch-hitter Jedd Gyorko, and then struck out Lorenzo Cain. Eric Sogard came up and singled to load the bases, which also chased Anderson from the game. Diego Castillo took the hill for the Rays. He struck out Keston Hiura to put the Brewers down to their final out, but then Braun came to the plate and hit a 2-1 pitch for a 394 foot home run.

The earlier Brewer runs came on a 2-run home run by Justin Smoak in the second and a Hiura double in the third that scored Sogard.

The Cardinals remain in first place. The Brewers are 1 1/2 games back, the Pirates are 2 1/2 games back and the Reds are 3 1/2 games back.

In other league news-

Dodger first baseman Max Muncy broke his wrist and will be out for 6 weeks. Muncy is having a big year with a .283/.402/.529/.930 line.

Trade made-
Phillies get - LHP-Daniel Norris (84 2/3 innings, 5.95 ERA, 1.50 WHIP, 5.31 FIP)
Tigers get - LF-Jay Bruce (108 plate appearances, .250/.343/.565/.908), LF-Ben Pelletier (21 years old, in A+ - 121 plate appearances, .200/.231/.322/.553)
Pelletier is a long-shot prospect, so this is basically a Norris for Bruce swap. Phillies traded Vince Velasquez earlier and now have to try and fill that hole with Norris...seems like quite a downgrade (Velasquez scheduled to start tomorrow against the Brewers). Bruce has some nice stats this year but wasn't getting any playing time for Philadelphia with Bryce Harper, Andrew McCutchen and Kevin Kiermaier in the outfield and Rhys Hopkins at first base.

July 8 - Rays 7, Brewers 4

This game was mostly about the Brewers blowing scoring chance after scoring chance. The Brewers had 12 hits, including 2 home runs, and 4 walks, but could only manage 4 runs out of all of that. The final box score had them with 11 men left on base, but it seems like a whole lot more when watching the game.

Pitching matchup was Vince Velasquez versus Corbin Burnes. The stats look fairly reasonable for each, but neither pitched very well. A bunch of baserunners resulted in early exits for both. Especially Burnes, who only lasted 3 1/3 innings and was yanked after throwing 82 pitches.

The Rays jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the first. Manuel Margot led off the game with a bunt single and advanced to second on a ground out. Austin Meadows singled to knock in Margot, and then later scored on a Hunter Renfroe sacrifice fly. The Rays scored another run in the second when Mike Zunino doubled, and then Luis Urias made a bad throw on a routine grounder from Velasquez that scored Zunino.

Ryan Braun doubled to start the second inning and then left the game with an injury. Post-game already shows that Braun suffered a quad injury and is listed as day-to-day for one week, so he might not miss any time. Ben Gamel was the pinch-runner and later scored on an Eric Sogard ground out.

Each team scored two runs in the seventh inning. Meadows hit a 2-run home run off of Devin Williams in the top half of the inning, and Lorenzo Cain responded with a 2-run home run off of Peter Fairbanks in the bottom half of the inning.

Eric Sogard hit a solo home run (off the foul pole) in the bottom of the eighth inning off of Colin Poche to make the score Rays 5, Brewers 4, and it looked like the team was primed for another comeback victory.

Chris Lee took the hill in the top of the ninth. He struck out Meadows, allowed a double to Nate Lowe and then Renfroe was intentionally walked. Counsell then went to Josh Hader to try and preserve the 1-run deficit. Hader struck out Brandon Lowe, but then allowed a double by Willy Adames that scored both of the baserunners.

But it really came down to blown chances by the Brewers. Fourth inning, 2 on with 1 out and no runs scored. Fifth inning, bases loaded with 1 out and no runs scored. Sixth inning, Smoak walks to start inning and then gets thrown out trying to steal. Next two men reach base and the Brewers are unable to score.

The Cardinals win and are on a four game winning streak. The Brewers are 2 1/2 games back, the Pirates and the Reds tied at 3 1/2 games back.

A few days ago I mentioned an international pool of players, and in older versions of the game the guys that eventually prove to be the best international players tend to come out of this pool. The Brewers signed one of these players, a right fielder named Cesar Quintero (Venezuela). Quintero has the potential to have an above average hit tool, but is listed as being below average in power potential, speed and throwing arm. He turns 16 years old tomorrow, so plenty of time for development. There are 28 players in this pool, and Quintero's overall potential ranking puts him at 15th out of the 28 players. Quintero is not listed on the Brewer's prospect list at all (and it goes 100 deep). Earlier I was saying that there wasn't a hard cap for these signings and thought that teams might only be limited by the international budget assigned, but I was wrong about that. There is a 5 million dollar cap that applies to all teams. However, 23 of the 28 have already signed and none have gotten a signing bonus, so I'm not sure if that is a glitch or I have a game setting incorrect or if just the top couple of guys are going to get big bonuses. Or maybe, since Quintero was in the middle of the pack of these players, and still doesn't get an organizational top 100 ranking, maybe they've changed the game in the last four years and this pool of players doesn't contain the quality it has in previous games.

July 9 - Brewers 5, Rockies 4

The Brewers score a second dramatic ninth inning comeback victory for the second time in three days.

The Rockies are a bad team. They entered this series with a 38-54 record. Coors Field is a big wild card in past versions of the game, get in that park and anything can happen. But I thought it was a real benefit for the Brewers to get the Rockies for 4 games in Miller Park before heading into the All-Star game. Nice chance to enter the break with a record over .500.

The pitching matchup was German Marquez versus Brent Suter. Suter had a rough start, allowing 3 runs in the first inning that all started with 2 outs. Charlie Blackmon doubled, Nolen Arenado knocked him in with a single and David Dahl hit a 2-run home run. The Brewers got a run back in the bottom of the 2nd. Brock Holt drew a walk and Ben Gamel knocked him in with a double.

The Rockies scored their 4th and final run in the top of the 4th. Brian Dozier had a bunt hit to start off the inning, and then later scored on a single by Troy Wolters. The Brewers scored 2 runs off of Marquez in the 7th. Omar Narvaez hit a solo home run, and Ben Gamel singled to score Brock Holt who had doubled to get on base.

So the Brewers entered the bottom half of the 9th with the Rockies up by a 4-3 score. Closer Scott Oberg came into the ballgame. Justin Smoak started the inning with a lazy flyball out to center. Narvaez singled. Luis Urias came up and doubled, which scored Narvaez and tied the ballgame. There was a throw to the plate on the play that allowed Urias to advance to third base. Brock Holt then drew a 4-pitch unintentional walk (may have been the unintentional intentional). Wade Davis came into the game in a tough situation with the winning run on third and only one out. Ben Gamel came up and singled with the infield drawn in to score Urias and win the game for the Brewers.

The win draws the Brewers to 1 1/2 games behind the Cardinals. The Pirates are 2 1/2 games back and the Reds are 3 games back.

Max Scherzer has some wrist soreness and is listed as day-to-day for two weeks. Seemingly minor injuries like this don't often get highlighted in the game, but Scherzer is in the running for the Cy Young Award (131 innings, 11-3 records, 2.06 ERA, 0.91 WHIP, 2.56 FIP).

We also have a minor trade-
Reds get- LHP-T.J. McFarland (41 2/3 innings, 4.54 ERA, 1.61 WHIP, 4.38 FIP)
A's get- RF-Narciso Crook (24 years old, in AA ball - 71 plate appearances, .169/.239/.308/.547)
Crook had a solid year between AAA and AA last year but hasn't been good this year and isn't considered much of a prospect. This is the third reliever the A's have traded in the last two weeks (Liam Hendricks to the Astros, Yusmeiro Petit to the Cardinals, T.J. McFarland to the Reds). The highest regarded prospect they've gotten back in these deals is RHP-Enoli Paredes, and he is the guy who has gotten called up to replace McFarland in the bullpen. The A's still have Jake Diekman and old friend Joakim Soria in the bullpen.

July 10 - Brewers 4, Rockies 3

Roster move made-
Logan Morrison released
I thought there might be a chance that the Brewers would send down Gamel and delay this decision until Yelich returns, but Gamel is playing well and the Brewers seem well-stocked at first base.

I have other things to do so no game comments today, please see the box score screenshots below.

The Brewers still 1 1/2 games behind the Cardinals.

Trade made-
Nationals get- RHP-Keone Kela (35 1/3 innings, 3.82 ERA, 1.27 WHIP, 4.91 FIP)
Pirates get- RHP-Mason Denaburg (20 years old, in A- ball - 21 1/3 innings, 4.22 ERA, 1.17 WHIP, 3.39 FIP)
Kela is the third reliever the Nationals have traded for in an effort to try and fix their awful bullpen (following Brandon Kintzler and Matt Magill). Denaburg maybe the best prospect that's been traded so far. He was the Nationals first round pick in 2018 (27th overall) and is now listed at #14 on the Pirates organizational prospects list.

July 11 - Brewers 4, Rockies 0

This was the series game to be worried about as a Brewer fan as Josh Lindblom took the hill, but Lindblom was magnificent against a completely listless Rockies team.

Ashton Goudeau, entering the game with a 6.75 ERA, took the mound for the Rockies and struggled right out of the gate. Lorenzo Cain singled and Avisail Garcia knocked him in with a double. Keston Hiura then doubled to score Garcia. Ryan Braun walked. Justin Smoak struck out for the first out of the inning. Luis Urias grounded into a fielder's choice at second to put runners on first and third with two outs. Eric Sogard came up and singled to score Hiura. Manny Pina then ended the three-run first inning with a fly out on a medium hit ball to centerfield.

The Brewers got an unneeded insurance run in the fourth when Pina doubled and later scored on a Cain single.

Lindblom threw 6 2/3 innings of shutout ball, allowing 5 hits and 2 walks against 7 strikeouts. Lindblom has now put 3 pretty good starts together...18 1/3 innings, 14 hits, 3 runs (all earned), 1 home run allowed, 6 walks, 15 strikeouts. It's taken over half of the season, but it looks like the rotation is finally starting to get a little bit of stability.

The Brewers move to within 1/2 game of St. Louis. The Pirates are 1 1/2 games back and the Reds are 4 games back.

July 12 - Rockies 22, Brewers 3

There will be a second post today due to the All-Star Teams and Futures Game.

The pitching matchup was Jon Gray versus Freddy Peralta. Peralta simply didn't have it. He walked Garrett Hampson to lead off the game and then Nolen Arenado hit a 2-1 pitch for a 405 foot home run to left-center field. He allowed another first inning run and then allowed a 2-run homer to Trevor Story with one out in the third inning and that was all for Peralta. At only 2 1/3 innings pitched, this was Peralta's shortest outing of the season.

Outside of Ray Black, who pitched a scoreless fifth inning, the bullpen didn't fare any better. Drew Rasmussen allowed a solo home run to Tony Wolters and a triple to Hampson and was charged with two runs. David Phelps loaded the bases with one out, and was charged with all three of those runners scoring after Adrian Houser came in and allowed a grand slam to David Dahl on the first pitch he threw. Houser wasn't done yet, he walked a couple more batters in the seventh inning and then Devin Williams came in, walked Hampson and then gave up a grand slam to Arenado. With the team in a 12-run hole, Counsell decided he wasn't going to use Alex Claudio, Chris Lee and Josh Hader in this game (who can blame him?), and instead used Keston Hiura, Manny Pina, Keon Broxton and Jedd Gyorko. Those guys gave up 7 runs in the last two innings, which was actually an improvement as the regular relievers gave up 8 runs in innings 6 and 7. Had to question bum-elbow Hiura taking the mound, but as the now 108 ERA indicates, he probably wasn't really exerting himself while pitching.

Jon Gray was pretty masterful through five innings and then seemed to lose focus in the sixth as the winner/loser had been decided. Brock Holt drew a walk to lead off the inning, a couple outs where made, and then Avisail Garcia hit a 2-run home run to get the Brewers on the scoreboard. Omar Narvaez scored another run later in the inning on a Jon Gray error (Luis Urias hit an tapper right to Gray that should have been an easy out).

So the Brewers enter the break at 48-46, tied for second place with the Pirates, 1 1/2 games behind the Cardinals. The Reds have gone on a mini-slump and are now 5 games out of first place. The Cubs are 13 games back and have the 4th worst record in baseball.

MLB All-Stars have been announced. There is a simulated fan vote that includes starting pitchers and relief pitchers, and the winners of the voting have an asterisk next to their name.

Three Brewers make the team, strangely enough all relief pitchers: Josh Hader, Ray Black and Chris Lee. Obviously no one will argue with Hader. Black and Lee haven't been that great lately but were excellent early on. Ironic that Lee was recently sent down, clearing waivers in the process, and then brought back up and is now on the All-Star team.

The Futures Game was held today. It looked like Brice Turang would be a lock to play in this game, but the recent AA stint where he bombed is likely what prevented him from being named to the NL team. Aaron Ashby was the only Brewer to make the team. Ashby has been outstanding - 86 1/3 innings, 2.50 ERA, 1.02 WHIP, 3.61 FIP, 0.6 HR/9, 3.1 BB/9, 9.6 K/9.

The NL team won the game 4-3. Unfortunately, it was Ashby who allowed all three of the AL team's runs. He pitched the second inning and allowed 2 hits and 1 walk while striking out 1 batter. Trevor Larnach (Twins) hit a home run and Jordan Brewer (Astros) tripled in the inning. The NL team won the game in the 10th inning when Jazz Chisholm (Marlins) singled and Mike Aquino (Cubs) scored. The winning pitcher was Kyle Dohy (Phillies) and the losing pitcher was Aaron Fletcher (Mariners).

Whoops, totally misread the series as being in Colorado. Guess I need to slow my scroll.

In that case, I'll go for the "even in a simulation we can't close out a sweep on a Sunday home game" joke.

July 13 - scheduled day off

Roster move made-
Drew Rasmussen optioned to AAA, J.P. Feyereisen recalled
Kind of a goofy move as Rasmussen is very unlikely to make a AAA appearance (last time Rasmussen pitched in a minor league game was all the way back on April 19), and I'd bet he gets called back up before play resumes on Friday.

The home run derby contestants were Cody Bellinger, Giancarlo Stanton, Bryce Harper, Alex Bregman, Miguel Sano, Edwin Encarnacion, Aaron Judge and Juan Soto. Bryce Harper was the winner, defeating Edwin Encarnacion in the final round by a 23-18 margin.

In other league news, on the same day as the home run derby, we have the runner-up being involved in a trade.
Diamondbacks get - 1B-Edwin Encarnacion (373 plate appearances, .256/.359/.534/.894, 27 HR, 58 RBI), 4.19 million in cash.
White Sox get - RF-Ismael Jamie (20 years old, rookie ball, 109 plate appearances, .300/.349/.430/.779), CF-Asdrubal Martinez (18 years old, rookie ball, .296/.443/.389/.832)
Encarnacion has 4.62 million left on his deal, so the White Sox are essentially paying him 4.19 million and the Diamondbacks only 430k. Neither Jamie or Martinez is considered much of a prospect. Like the Nelson Cruz trade, another odd move with a DH moving to the National League. What is really odd is that the fallout of this move is Jake Lamb being sent to AAA. Lamb does have options remaining, but he also has 5+ years of service time and can refuse the assignment, which seems to always happen in the game. Kind of curious as to why it didn't happen here?

One thing that is for certain, when looking at the trades that have been made, that this is a big-time buyer's market. I hope the Brewers get in on this. Now watch the game go and make a Brice Turang + Aaron Ashby for Greg Holland trade or something ridiculous along those lines.

July 14 - scheduled day off

All Star Game = National League 9, American League 4

All three Brewer pitchers appeared and all did well.

Chris Lee pitched the 4th inning: Jorge Solar strikes out, Cesar Hernandez grounds out weakly to short, Gary Sanchez flies out on medium hit ball to centerfield.

Ray Black pitched the 8th inning: Michael Brantley flies out to deep right field (thought it was a home run off the bat), Rafael Devers walks, Cesar Hernandez grounds into a 5-4-3 double play.

Josh Hader comes in with 2 outs in the 9th and strikes out Austin Hays to end the ballgame.

Also some other news from around the league-

Dodger pitcher Walker Buehler has a slight tear in a triceps and is out for 2 months. Buehler had thrown 111 2/3 innings with a 3.63 ERA, 0.95 WHIP and 3.72 FIP. Ross Stripling, who has been pitching in the minors for most of the season, will take Buehler's spot in the rotation.

There has also been another trade-
A's get RHP - Anthony DeSclafani (106 2/3 innings, 4.81 ERA, 1.23 WHIP, 5.33 FIP) and 1B - Bren Spillane (23 years old, AA stats - 261 plate appearances, .190/.293/.252/.546)
Reds get RF - Luis Barrera (24 years old, AA stats - 378 plate appearances, .297/.350/.453/.804) and 3B - T.J. Schofield-Sam (19 years old, rookie ball stats - 7 plate appearances, .143/.143/.429/.571)
Luis Barrera is a solid role-player type prospect. He goes into the Reds top prospect list at #20. Kind of strange that the A's trade away three relief pitchers and then trade for a starter. Only sense I can make out of it is that Daulton Jefferies (competitive balance round A pick in 2016, #37 overall) had been pushed in the rotation after having appeared out of the bullpen. Jefferies had only thrown 6 AAA innings and 64 AA innings, so maybe the A's don't want him in a MLB rotation just yet. Otherwise, this trade makes no sense. A's are 44-52 and seemingly going nowhere, and DeSclafani is free agent at the end of the year. No word on who will fill the open spot in the Red's rotation, but I'm guessing Lucas Sims will get yet another shot as he is currently in the Red's bullpen.

July 15 - scheduled day off

Only one trade to report.

Red Sox get - RHP - Dan Altavilla (29 1/3 innings, 2.76 ERA, 1.19 WHIP, 3.51 FIP)
Mariners get - RHP - Bryan Mata (21 years old, MLB stats = 9 2/3 innings, 6.52 ERA, 2.28 WHIP, 5.06 FIP) and SS - Lyonell James (17 years old, 1 rookie ball plate appearance, .000/.000/.000/.000)
Pretty interesting deal IMO. Altavilla is now up to 123 2/3 MLB innings and has been hard to hit (6.5 H/9) and strikes out a lot of batters (10.0 K/9), but he allows a ton of walks (4.9 BB/9). Unlike most of the veterans who have been traded so far, Altavilla will be under Red Sox control for 3 more seasons following this one. Mata is by far the highest rated prospect who has been traded so far. He is currently #94 on the Top 100 list and goes into Seattle's organizational ranking at #5. James is a rookie ball lottery-ticket type piece. Based on his current potential ratings, it doesn't seem likely he'll be an MLB'er but who knows with a 17 year old?

July 16 - scheduled day off

Indian's pitcher Mike Clevinger is suffering from shoulder inflammation and will miss the next four weeks. Clevinger missed a few weeks earlier in the season with a rotator cuff strain and missed almost all of spring training with a torn meniscus in his knee. He's been excellent when available- 79 innings, 2.96 ERA, 1.13 WHIP, 4.05 FIP. Triston McKenzie takes his spot but not as a starter, but rather a follower. McKenzie hasn't been great in MLB appearances so far this season. 5 games, 19 1/3 innings, 6.52 ERA, 1.71 WHIP, 4.95 FIP.

Another trade-
Angels get - LF - Corey Dickerson (354 plate appearances, .307/.333/.449/.783, 7 HR, 42 RBI)
Marlins get - RHP - Jamie Barria (23 years old, in AA - 96 innings, 5.53 ERA, 1.27 WHIP, 5.04 FIP), LHP - Denny Bentley (22 years old, in AAA - 2 innings, 0.00 ERA, 0.50 WHIP, 2.37 FIP), RHP - Kyle Molnar (23 years old, in A - 45 innings, 2.60 ERA, 1.40 WHIP, 4.64 FIP)
Dickerson hasn't reproduced the slash line he had in 2020, but he's still been a good offensive performer and moves into a platoon situation with Justin Upton in left field. Upton has hit the long ball but is struggling to get on base (.216/.305/.401/.706, 16 HR, 49 RBIs). Berria had a solid showing in the majors in 2018 (26 starts, 129 1/3 innings, 3.41 ERA, 1.27 WHIP, 4.75 FIP), but regressed last year and has struggled in AA this season. Neither of the pitching prospects rate as organizational top 50 types. Molnar's potential ratings give the indication that he might have a chance to have some success in the majors, Bentley looks like a real long shot.

The Brewers begin a 3 game series at San Diego tomorrow and then visit Dodger Stadium for 3 games. So a challenging west coast trip to begin the second half of the season.
