Brewers place 2B Scooter Gennett on DL, make minor moves


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/21/2015) The injury-ravaged and floundering Brewers have placed second baseman Scooter Gennett on the disabled list with a left hand laceration. Four of their top position players are down.

His problem has festered since cutting his hand in the shower. The original diagnosis was that he was to likely miss two games. He's expected to return after his 15 days are up, per the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. Once he returns, he will attempt to improve a .207/.303/.207 slash line. Gennett has six singles all year.

The move motivated the Brewers to promote infielder/outfielder Elian Herrera from Triple-A and designate for assignment right-hander Brandon Kintzler.


Brewers option Brandon Kintzler to Triple-A


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/29/2015) The Brewers have optioned pitcher Brandon Kintzler to Triple-A Colorado Springs, the team announced Sunday.

Brewers' Kintzler ready to bounce back after injury plagued 2014


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(3/4/2015) Brewers pitcher Brandon Kintzler was been bit by the injury bug in 2014. Kintzler was forced to go under the knife with a knee injury last year while dealing with a shoulder issue as well, allowing him to pitch just 58 1/3 innings, posting a 3.24 ERA and 31 strikeouts.

"My arm hasn't felt this good in a while. It feels live," Kintzler said. "I feel like my alignment, my mechanics, is right where I need it to be."

Kintzler also said he wasn't in the right mindset in 2014.

"Mentally, I just wasn't right because I was thinking of mechanics so much," said Kintzler, 30. "I had to go 'around' my knee, and as a sinkerballer, I need to get up over that knee. I would throw one really good sinker and go, 'Yeah, that's it.' Then, the next one, my arm couldn't get there, and it's a flat sinker and a homer. That was so frustrating. I couldn't be consistent."


Brewers' Brandon Kintzler hoping for better health in 2015


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(2/23/2015) Brewers pitcher Brandon Kintzler is hoping for better health in 2015, according to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel

Kintzler pitched through a slightly torn patellar tendon last season, and said the issue led to more strain on his arm. "It's a beating on your lower half all the time," he said. "Not many people think about it like that. Your arm has to take a longer path. It’s just not good, anytime you’ve got to change your path."

Kintzler didn't tell the team about the issue until after Milwaukee was eliminated from the playoffs. At that point, he opted to have surgery. While he hasn't been able to run just yet, Kintzler has no restrictions on throwing during camp. "It’s just so much easier on my arm," he said. "Even playing catch – I haven’t been that live in a while to where I can just let it fly."

The 30-year-old posted a 3.24 ERA over 58 1/3 innings last year.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Brewers' bullpen untouchable right now


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(4/29/2014) Six Brewers relievers combined to pitch six scoreless innings in Monday's 5-3, 12-inning win in St. Louis, the latest superb effort by Milwaukee's bullpen. The pen has a 2.18 ERA, third-best in the majors, and opponents are batting .195, lowest in the majors, reports the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel.

Closer Francisco Rodriguez and Will Smith have yet to allow an earned run, while Tyler Thornburg (0.71 ERA), Brandon Kintzler (1.29) and Zach Duke (1.46) have been lights out too.

"It's unbelievable the job the young guys in the bullpen are doing," said Rodriguez, who is 12 for 12 in save chances. "It's tremendous. ... It's an unbelievable first month. Even though it's still early, I like our chances because (my teammates) are hungry. They go out and compete every single day, which is something I'm proud of."

Brandon Kintzler emerges in Brewers' bullpen


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/4/2013) Brewers reliever Brandon Kintzler has quietly turned in a nice stretch of relief appearances. The right-handed reliever has been scored upon just once in his last 17 outings, posting a 0.81 ERA and .110 opponents' batting average.

Kinztler has improved his ERA from 4.39 to 2.76 in his last 17 outings and has 18 strikeouts in 22 1/3 innings in that span.

"He's another guy that throws strikes," Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said, per the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. "He has tremendous movement and velocity with his fastball. If you look at what left-handers are doing against him, they're under .200."

He is holding lefties to a .127 batting average, while right-handed batters are hitting .239.

"That's a little unusual with a sinker-baller," Roenicke said. "He's got a good changeup and a nice slider, and he must locate really well because you can't go through left-handed hitters like that unless you locate. When he's good, he keeps the ball down and gets a lot of ground balls."
