BREWERS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Henderson sharp in return, Brewers beat Wisconsin-Milwaukee

MARYVALE, Ariz. (AP) Former closer Jim Henderson threw a scoreless inning in his first outing since May and the Milwaukee Brewers beat the University of Milwaukee-Wisconsin 8-0 on Wednesday. In a game for the first time since ending last season with a shoulder injury May 2, Henderson walked one and struck out two in the second inning. He saved 28 games for Milwaukee in 2013 but...

Is more K-Rod the answer for the Brewers?

Francisco “K-Rod” Rodriguez is staying in Milwaukee. (Credit: Mark Hoffman) About a week ago the Milwaukee Brewers agreed to resign Francisco Rodriguez to a two-year deal worth $13 million. It still is not official yet due to Rodriguez needing to acquire a work visa from his native Venezuela. In his four seasons with the Brewers, “K-Rod” has accumulated 97 saves and...

Parra may not have everyday job in Brewers' crowded OF

PHOENIX (AP) The Milwaukee Brewers have a numbers problem in the outfield that many other teams might envy. There are four players worthy of three starting spots, including Gold Glove winners in Carlos Gomez and Gerardo Parra; 2011 NL MVP Ryan Braun and promising young slugger Khris Davis. It looks as if the versatile Parra will begin the season without an everyday job despite boasting...

Brewers' Ramirez anticipates 2015 will be his final season

PHOENIX -- It's never easy for a baseball player to leave his family for six weeks of spring training, no matter how nice the weather is in Arizona. This year, though, was harder than most for Milwaukee Brewers third baseman Aramis Ramirez. And on Friday, he said he wouldn't be doing it anymore. ''When I was leaving this year, I don't think I can do that again,'' he said Friday....

Brewers' Ramirez says he'll probably retire after 2015 season

PHOENIX -- It was a bit surprising at the time, but it turns out there was a reason why Aramis Ramirez opted to exercise his half of a mutual option with the Milwaukee Brewers instead of chasing a multiyear contract. Ramirez is entering spring training with the mindset that the 2015 season will be his last, as he plans on retiring following his 18th year in the big leagues. "I don...

Two Eras of Francisco Rodriguez

Doug Melvin, a few days ago: Melvin wouldn’t comment on the state of possible talks with the Phillies, but acknowledged the lines of communication have remained open with “K-Rod.” “I don’t know if it’s active, but we still have conversations,” Melvin said. “Mark deals more with that. (Agent) Scott (Boras) keeps calling Mark.” You know […]

Brewers bring back Fransico Rodriguez on two-year deal

The Milwaukee Brewers have given closer Francisco Rodriguez a two-year deal to return with the team. While the Brewers had been talking to the Philadelphia Phillies about a trade for Jonathan Papelbon, it always seemed that re-signing Rodriguez was the easier path. After posting a 3.04 ERA and a 73/18 K/BB ratio across 68 innings last season the Brewers will again ticket Rodriguez...

PHOENIX -- Milwaukee Brewers right fielder Ryan Braun reported to the team's Maryvale spring training complex Wednesday afternoon with a healthy right thumb and his focus clearly on the 2015 season.

Kevin Correia Would Look Neat on Minor League Deal

Milwaukee traded longtime starter Yovani Gallardo for three young players in January.  The Brewers saved some money in the transaction and theoretically opened up a rotation spot for Jimmy Nelson. Unfortunately, the side effect of the Gallardo deal was that it seriously weakened the starting pitching depth for the club.  The Brewers now have question marks at the sixth starter...

The Brewers are giving away a Bud Selig bobblehead

I know Bud Selig is the man that brought the Brewers to Milwaukee, but I think the level of honor the Brewers are giving him after his retirement as MLB Commissioner is a little bit ridiculous. On May 31st, they’re giving away this 1970s era Selig bobblehead. Here's a sneak peek at the 1970s Selig Bobblehead. Tix go on sale this weekend: http://t.co/51m3K5srBQ pic.twitter.com...

Brewers Could Sign K-Rod Soon

Francisco Rodriguez Expected To Sign Soon http://t.co/YqfdO46fr3 — MLB Trade Rumors (@mlbtraderumors) February 24, 2015 Much has been said about Francisco (“K-Rod”) Rodriguez this offseason, and most of it has been critical of his many home runs given up during the 2014 season.  While K-Rod did give up an unsavory 14 home runs last year in 68 innings, that number, despite...

Bold Talk from Brewers, but it could Backfire

Milwaukee Brewers: Lucroy should see more time at first base

Expect to see Lucroy at first a bit more this season. Since Prince Fielder left the Milwaukee Brewers after the 2011 season, first base has been a revolving door year after year with the team not able to find a consistent replacement. This year appears to be more of the same except their most consistent offensive talent will be thrown into the mix, Jonathan Lucroy. The platoon of...
