Capsules of National League Central teams, listed in order of finish last year:
MILWAUKEE (AP) — David Stearns doesn't expect wholesale change for the Milwaukee Brewers after they fell a game short of the World Series.
LOS ANGELES (AP) — The Milwaukee Brewers know they can count on their intimidating bullpen to get outs. They may not have been expecting a twice-demoted shortstop to generate so much offense.
MILWAUKEE (AP) — Ryan Braun will hit third for the Milwaukee Brewers in Game 1 of their National League Division Series against the Colorado Rockies.
The veteran outfielder, who hit .346 with five homers over the final seven games of the regular season, will hit behind table-setters Lorenzo Cain and Christian Yelich.
MILWAUKEE (AP) — The Milwaukee Brewers played long ball with homers by Christian Yelich, Travis Shaw and Mike Moustakas. It was a small-ball play by Orlando Arcia that was the game-changer.
With the Brewers clinging to a one-run lead in the sixth, Arcia pushed a bunt down the first-base line past Pittsburgh first baseman Josh Bell for a two-run double in a 7-4 victory over the Pirates on Friday night.
CHICAGO (AP) — Right after Tommy La Stella struck out swinging for the final out, Jeremy Jeffress pounded his glove with his right hand and Erik Kratz pumped his right arm in jubilation.
Forget about the wild-card standings. The Milwaukee Brewers are fighting for the NL Central title.
Lorenzo Cain had four hits, Mike Moustakas scored on Carl Edwards Jr.'s wild pitch in the sixth inning and the Brewers beat the Chicago Cubs 3-2 on Monday night to move within one game of the division leaders.
MILWAUKEE (AP) — Welcome to the big leagues, Brett Kennedy.
Jesus Aguilar, Travis Shaw and Eric Thames hit consecutive first-inning homers to spoil Kennedy's San Diego debut and propel the Milwaukee Brewers to an 8-4 victory over the Padres on Wednesday night.
Kennedy, who was 10-0 in 16 starts at Triple-A El Paso before being called up Monday, was tagged for six runs on 11 hits in four innings.
MILWAUKEE (AP) — Tyler Saladino was activated from the disabled list and in the Milwaukee Brewers' starting lineup Thursday as they prepared to open a four-game series against the Atlanta Braves.
Saladino was acquired from the Chicago White Sox in late April and recalled from Triple-A Colorado Springs on May 9. He appeared in 16 games for the Brewers and was batting .326 in 16 games when he went down with a sprained ankle and landed on the DL on May 30.
CINCINNATI (AP) — The Milwaukee Brewers have optioned struggling shortstop Orlando Arcia to Triple-A Colorado Springs before Sunday's series finale against the Cincinnati Reds.
In a corresponding move, Milwaukee recalled right-hander Aaron Wilkerson from Colorado Springs.
The 23-year-old Arcia hit .197 in 66 games, including 56 starts. He hit .277 in his first full year last season.
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Ji-Man Choi casually jogged to first. The jubilation in the Brewers' dugout indicated otherwise.
Choi and came through with a go-ahead grand slam when he pinch hit in the sixth inning, and the Milwaukee Brewers beat the Philadelphia Phillies 12-3 on Saturday.
"I thought it was a fly ball," Choi said through a translator. "I'm just really happy I was able to get this hit."
MILWAUKEE (AP) — It was a memorable return for Alex Reyes. Same for Orlando Arcia, albeit for much different reasons.
Reyes pitched four scoreless innings for St. Louis in his return from Tommy John surgery, but Arcia hit a tiebreaking RBI single in Milwaukee's two-run seventh and the Brewers held off the Cardinals for a 3-2 win on Wednesday.
MILWAUKEE (AP) — Shortstop Tyler Saladino has a sprained left ankle and has been put on the 10-day disabled list by the Milwaukee Brewers, who recalled shortstop Orlando Arcia from Triple-A Colorado Springs before Wednesday's game against the St. Louis Cardinals.
Saladino jammed his ankle into second base as he took a throw from second baseman Hernan Perez on a force play in the third inning Tuesday night. Saladino had to be helped off the field.
MILWAUKEE (AP) — Orlando Arcia's offensive woes finally outweighed his defensive play at shortstop.
The Milwaukee Brewers optioned Arcia to Triple-A Colorado Springs and acquired backup catcher Erik Kratz from the New York Yankees as part of a series of moves announced Friday before their game against the New York Mets.
The slick-fielding Arcia was hitting .194. Considered one of the franchise's top young players, the 23-year-old Arcia struggled after hitting .277 with 15 homers in 2017.
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Brewers activated catcher Manny Pina from the disabled list and put him into the starting lineup for Tuesday night's series opener against the Kansas City Royals.
They cleared roster space by optioning catcher Jacob Nottingham to Triple-A Colorado Springs.
Pina, who spent his first two big league seasons with the Royals, was hitting .219 with a homer and three RBIs when he went on the DL retroactive to April 13 with a strained left calf.
MILWAUKEE (AP) — Christian Yelich quickly made an impact in his return from the disabled list.
The Milwaukee center fielder made a snazzy sliding catch on a fly ball that deflected off the glove of left fielder Hernan Perez, and the Brewers beat the Cincinnati Reds 2-0 on Wednesday.
NEW YORK (AP) — After rolling along for nearly two weeks, the New York Mets met their match on the mound.
Chase Anderson breezed into the seventh inning on a windy Fireworks Night at Citi Field, and the Milwaukee Brewers stopped New York's nine-game winning streak with a 5-1 victory Saturday.
MILWAUKEE (AP) — Orlando Arcia faced an uncommon defensive alignment when he came to the plate with the game on the line in the ninth inning and a chance to help the struggling Milwaukee Brewers pull off a win over their heated division rival.
Against a five-man infield, Arcia flared an opposite-field single to right with one out, lifting the Brewers over Chicago Cubs 5-4 on Friday night.
SAN DIEGO (AP) — Ji-Man Choi says being with the Milwaukee Brewers reminds him of a fun day at an amusement park.
The Brewers enjoyed a wild ride on opening day, beating the San Diego Padres 2-1 in 12 innings on Thursday.
Reliever Jeremy Jeffress emphatically pumped his fists several times after getting Chase Headley to hit into a bases-loaded double play in the 11th, and then Orlando Arcia singled in Choi with two outs in the 12th inning.
