Brewers' Elian Herrera, Hector Gomez will split time at second


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(5/19/2015) The Brewers will have Elian Herrera and Hector Gomez split playing time at second base for the forseeable future. 

"I’m going to take it on a nightly basis," manager Craig Counsell said, per the Journal Sentinel. "There’s no pre-set guy that’s going to get the bulk of the playing time. We’ll go with it every night and see what happens."

"I think Hector is a tremendous defender. That’s the biggest plus that he brings," Counsell said. "Elian is a switch-hitter, which is nice to have. They’ve both shown extra-base hit potential."

by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(5/18/2015) One day after a scary incident in which he was hit in the head with a fastball, Carlos Gomez is back in his familiar spot atop the Brewers lineup Monday as they prepare to face the Tigers at Comerica Park. 

Gomez did not suffer a concussion, just a facial contusion, and so he will be back in center field for the Brewers. With the DH in play, Aramis Ramirez will give up his customary third base position to Elian Herrera

Milwaukee designated second baseman Scooter Gennett for assignment Monday, giving the second base job to the time being to Hector Gomez, who will hit eighth.

Brewers manager Ron Roenicke indicated that Ramirez originally injured the hamstring in Tuesday's loss to the Reds. 

"Aramis actually wanted to play [Friday]," Roenicke said, per MLB.com. "We were hoping one day off [on Wednesday] would clear it, and it's still there. So, just to be cautious, we talked him out of playing."

For his part, Ramirez says he expects to return to the Brewers' lineup for the series-finale on Sunday.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Parra was bumped from the No. 2 spot in the order and will bat eighth for Milwaukee before Aramis Ramirez was scratched with a hamstring injury. With Ramirez's absence, Parra moved to the No. 7 hole. He is hitting .222 (12 for 54) in 21 games.

Milwaukee is an underdog (+170) at Wrigley Field, per VegasInsider.com.

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Brewers' Ryan Braun, Aramis Ramirez out of lineup Sunday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/26/2015) Brewers right fielder Ryan Braun and third baseman Aramis Ramirez are out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Cardinals.

"It's not something I want to do, rest them," manager Ron Roenicke said, per MLB.com. "I need these guys in here playing, trying to win. But when someone tells me they need a day off, they need a day off."

Braun had started 15 straight games in right field coming into Sunday's action, but he'll get his first break from starting since April 8. He has hitjust .230/.277/.279 with one home run and four RBI in 61 at-bats.

"He's pressing like everybody is," Roenicke said. "They're frustrated they're not seeing better results. I think he's had a lot of really good at-bats but he doesn't have much to show for it."

Ramirez has started 16 of the team's 18 games at third base but will take a seat after making four straight starts. He's hit just .197/.197/.295 with one home run and six RBI in 61 at-bats.

"It's tough to do with both of them," Roenicke said. "You guys saw the lineup today. It's quite a bit different. In games we feel like we have to do everything we can to win, it's not what I want to do."

With Braun out of the lineup, Logan Schafer will play center field and bat second, while Gerardo Parra while shift to right field and bat third. Hector Gomez draws the start for Ramirez and will bat seventh.

The Brewers are home underdogs (+135) against the Cardinals Sunday.

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Gomez has made three starts so far this season and is hitting .273 with two RBI in 11 at-bats. Gomez will likely be in the lineup for the next two days with Gennett waiting for a cut on his hand to heal. The Brewers are currently the favorites (-115) against the Reds.


Brewers' Ryan Braun bats leadoff for first time in career


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(4/18/2015) Brewers right fielder Ryan Braun was slotted in the leadoff position in the team's starting lineup on Saturday, the first time in his career he's batted leadoff. 

The Brewers' lineup had other major changes on Saturday. Martin Maldonado will bat seventh and catch, in just his fourth game of 2015. Regular catcher Jonathan Lucroy replaces Adam Lind at first base. 

"Trying to do something different, getting [Braun] sparked," Roenicke said to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. "He's had better at-bats, but just to get his mind off some things and maybe on something else. Then also, I think he is swinging the bat better. He's just not getting hits. Put him in a little different atmosphere. Hopefully he can get on base for us and have the other guys drive him in."

Hector Gomez gets the start at second base, batting sixth. He replaces Scooter Gennett

Logan Schaefer is in center field, batting eighth. It will be his first start of the season.


Brewers' Lucroy, Gennett not in starting lineup Sunday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/12/2015) Brewers catcher Jonathan Lucroy and second baseman Scooter Gennett are not in the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Pirates.

Lucroy is getting a break from starting Sunday after opening the season just 1 for 20, and Martin Maldonado will take his spot behind the plate. Manager Ron Roenicke said he isn't worried about Lucroy's slow start, the Journal Sentinel reports.

"Luc has had some good at-bats," Roenicke said Sunday. "He stayed on a breaking ball and hit a bullet to second yesterday. The day before he lined out to short. So he’s had some good at-bats. The first couple days he was lost, then he started swinging the bat again. I like what he’s doing."

With Lucroy out of the lineup, Jean Segura will move to the No. 2 slot, and the manager indicated that Segura's early-season performance made his choice for the spot easy.

"The way he’s been swinging it, yeah," Roenicke said. "Other than that, I don’t what I would have done. Sometimes you slip in a Khris Davis or somebody else. But Seggy, the way he’s swinging, he’s perfect."

Gennett is out of the lineup for the second straight game after getting ejected Friday for slamming his bat to the ground on a called strike three when the team had no backup infielders on the bench. Hector Gomez will get a second straight start at second base after going 2 for 3 Saturday.

The Brewers are favorites (-120) against the Pirates Sunday.

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Brewers' Scooter Gennett out due to frustration with ejection


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/11/2015) Brewers second baseman Scooter Gennett is not in the starting lineup Saturday due to frustration with his ejection from Friday's game, manager Ron Roenicke said per the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

Hector Gomez will replace him at second. Gennett was ejected from Friday's game after throwing his bat down in frustration after a called strike on an attempted check swing. He is struggling so far at the plate this season, going just 1 for 13 with six strikeouts.

"I don't need [an explanation], I know why," Gennett said to MLB.com. "I let my frustrations get the best of me last night, and I apologize. I kind of lost track of how many guys we had left on the bench. That's something I don't really focus on; I focus more on hitting the ball. The one thing I felt worse about was doing that to my team."

We would be on the field in the morning, then go to the gym, then back on the field in the afternoon. I was ready for this moment. I'm ready for Opening Day. I've watched on TV, and I want to be there. I want to feel that. I'm close."

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(2/25/2015) Brewers manager Ron Roenicke will spend spring training judging his infielder's versatility for depth behind Jean Segura and Scooter Gennett, per MLB.com.

Milwaukee has three shortstops on its 40-man roster with the chance to break camp with the big-league club. Hector Gomez, 26, and Luis Sardinas, 21, are expected to see time at second base behind Scooter Gennett.

"We want to give Scooter a chance against lefties, but if there's a day off we want to give him, or if it works out that we need to have a [right-handed hitting] guy there more often, who's it going to be?" Roenicke said. "Is it going to be Sardinas? Jimenez, because we know he hits lefties well? Who's that other guy who's going to be there?"

Yadiel Rivera, 22, should see some work at third behind Aramis Ramirez.
