Brewers' Ethan Small: Secures first career save
Small gave up two walks and no hits in a scoreless inning, en route to his first career save in Thursday's 3-0 win over the Cardinals.
Small has not traditionally been an option to close games in his limited work so far, however the team was willing to experiment with the rookie in a high-leverage spot given they are likely providing their regulars extra rest in advance of the playoffs. The southpaw made things tight by bringing the tying run to the plate in Masyn Winn after allowing two walks, but managed to close the door and preserve the team shutout. This was Small's first game back since being recalled from the injured list Wednesday, and he has pitched to a 11.25 ERA and 2.75 WHIP across four innings with six strikeouts in an injury-riddled season....

Brewers' Julio Teheran: Earns win in scoreless outing
Teheran (3-5) allowed one hit across four scoreless innings, earning the win in Thursday's 3-0 win over the Cardinals. He struck out four.
Teheran took over to provide some long relief after Corbin Burnes pitched four innings, responding with four clean innings of his own to keep the team shutout intact. The right-hander has shown well in bulk relief this month, pitching to a 2 ERA and 1.11 WHIP with six strikeouts across nine innings.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Corbin Burnes: Fires four scoreless in win
Burnes did not allow a run on five hits and one walk across four innings in Thursday's 3-0 win over the Cardinals. He struck out four.
Burnes likely earned some rest in advance of the playoffs, only throwing 66 pitches across four innings before turning the ball over to Julio Teheran. The right-hander has put together another excellent season, pitching to a 3.39 ERA and 1.07 WHIP across 193.2 innings. Notably, he reached the 200 strikeout milestone for the third season in a row, highlighting his consistency and reliability when taking the mound.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Freddy Peralta: Resting on final turn
Peralta will not pitch this weekend against the Cubs, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.
Peralta appeared lined up for Saturday's game versus Chicago, but the NL Central-champion Brewers will instead give him extended rest leading into the playoffs. The 27-year-old right-hander finishes with a 3.86 ERA, 1.12 WHIP and 210:54 K:BB in 165.2 regular-season innings.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Colin Rea: Getting start Friday
Rea is scheduled to start Friday against the Cubs, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.
Rea gets the ball in place of Brandon Woodruff, who will not make another start for the NL Central champs until the Wild Card Series. Rea, 33, holds a 4.74 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and 104:38 K:BB in 119.2 innings (21 starts, four relief appearances) this season with the Brewers.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Brandon Woodruff: Won't pitch final weekend
Woodruff will not pitch over the final weekend of the regular season, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.
Woodruff would be on normal rest for Friday's series opener against the Cubs, but he'll instead stay fresh with rounds of live batting practice as the Brewers line up their postseason rotation. Colin Rea is the listed starter Friday versus Chicago, followed by a TBD on Saturday and Adrian Houser on Sunday.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Tyrone Taylor: Takes seat Thursday
Taylor is out of the lineup Thursday versus the Cardinals.
Taylor went 2-for-4 with two doubles, two RBI and a run scored in the Brewers' defeat of St. Louis on Wednesday and is slashing .300/.329/.586 in 73 plate appearances since the beginning of September, but Christian Yelich (back) and Garrett Mitchell (shoulder) now being healthy puts a question mark on his claim to playing time in the Milwaukee outfield. Sal Frelick will also ride the pine in Thursday's series finale against the Cardinals.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Sal Frelick: Heads to bench Thursday
Frelick is not in the lineup for Thursday's game against the Cardinals.
Frelick is enjoying a productive rookie season overall, but his OPS has fallen from .769 to .702 since the beginning of September and he could get dinged on playing time as the Brewers work Garrett Mitchell (shoulder) back into the mix. Mitchell will start in center field Thursday with Mark Canha patrolling right field. Tyrone Taylor is also on the bench.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Brian Anderson: Designated for assignment
Anderson was designated for assignment by the Brewers on Thursday.
This move clears out a 40-man roster spot for Garrett Mitchell (shoulder) as he returns from the 60-day injured list. Anderson played regularly for the Brewers in the first half of the 2023 campaign, but he'd logged only 27 plate appearances since the beginning of August while slashing .192/.222/.308 with one walk and nine strikeouts....

Brewers' Garrett Mitchell: Activated from 60-day IL
The Brewers activated Mitchell (shoulder) from the 60-day injured list ahead of Thursday's game against the Cardinals.
Mitchell finished off an eight-game minor-league rehab assignment Sunday with Triple-A Nashville and further proved his health during a couple of simulated games this week in Milwaukee. Sidelined since April 18 due to a shoulder injury that eventually required surgery, the 25-year-old center fielder can offer a boost to the Brewers offensively and defensively as they play out the final four games of the regular season and head into the playoffs. Mitchell has slashed .286/.341/.462 in 130 career major-league plate appearances dating back to his debut in August of 2022.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Devin Williams: Posts 36th save
Williams recorded a save against the Cardinals on Wednesday, walking two batters and striking out one in a scoreless and hitless inning.
Williams had some trouble with his control, throwing just nine of 19 pitches for strikes and walking a pair of batters while tasked with protecting a one-run lead. Both of the free passes came with two outs, but the right-handed reliever was able to steer around the danger by getting Jordan Walker to fly out to end the contest. This was Williams' first appearance in 10 days and his first save since Sept. 15. With six straight scoreless outings during which he's 4-for-4 in save opportunities, Williams looks primed for the postseason.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Wade Miley: Solid over five frames Wednesday
Miley allowed one run on six hits and one walk while striking out two batters over five innings in a no-decision against St. Louis on Wednesday.
Miley yielded a run in the second frame but otherwise kept the Cardinals off the scoreboard in another strong outing. The left-hander has given up one or zero runs in three of his past four starts, posting a 2.21 ERA over 20.1 innings during that stretch. Miley's 14:8 K:BB during that period isn't very impressive, but he's pitching well enough to be a solid option should the Brewers need a fourth starter in the playoffs. The veteran hurler finished the regular season with a strong 3.14 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 79:38 K:BB over 120.1 frames.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Ethan Small: Called up Wednesday
Small was recalled from Triple-A Nashville on Wednesday.
The 26-year-old will take the roster spot of J.B. Bukauskas, who landed on the injured list with a finger injury. Small allowed five earned runs over three frames in his lone big-league appearance of the season back in late May.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' J.B. Bukauskas: Out with finger injury
Bukauskas was placed on the 15-day injured list Wednesday, retroactive to Sept. 25, with a right ring finger tendon injury.
The severity of the injury is unclear, but Bukauskas is now poised to be sidelined through at least the NLDS, assuming the Brewers advance. Ethan Small was recalled from Triple-A Nashville in a corresponding move.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Mark Canha: Out of Wednesday's lineup
Canha is not in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Cardinals.
Canha will take a seat after making 11 straight starts because Milwaukee secured the NL Central title Tuesday. William Contreras will rest his legs as the designated hitter while Victor Caratini receives a start behind the plate.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Willy Adames: Sitting Wednesday
Adames is not in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Cardinals.
The Brewers are sitting multiple regulars, including Adames, after clinching the NL Central title Tuesday. Brice Turang will shift to shortstop while Andruw Monasterio starts at the keystone.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Josh Donaldson: Takes seat Wednesday
Donaldson is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Cardinals.
Donaldson has a .743 OPS in 13 games since joining the Brewers and will head to the bench after the club earned the NL Central title Tuesday. Brian Anderson is starting at the hot corner and batting eighth.... See More ... See Less
