  • Brewers' Blake Perkins: Pops solo homer

    Perkins went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Thursday's win against the Cardinals.

    Perkins opened the scoring in Thursday's victory with a 390-foot solo homer off Miles Mikolas in the third inning. The 27-year-old rookie has started four of five games since returning from an oblique injury Sept. 17. Perkins is known for his glove and speed and is slashing .217/.322/.326 with three homers and five steals over 60 games.

  • Brewers' Blake Perkins: Starting in return from IL

    Perkins (oblique) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list and is starting in center field and batting ninth Sunday versus the Nationals.

    Perkins has been sidelined by the oblique injury since Aug. 11 but will rejoin the Brewers after a four-game rehab assignment. The 27-year-old has a .212/.311/.297 slash line across 56 games this season and should operate as a depth outfielder.

  • Brewers' Blake Perkins: Set for rehab games

    Perkins (oblique) was cleared to begin a rehab assignment Tuesday with Triple-A Nashville, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.

    Perkins has spent the last couple of weeks working out at the Brewers' spring training complex in Arizona and is now ready for a return to live games. The 27-year-old outfielder has been on the shelf since Aug. 11 because of a left oblique strain.

  • Brewers' Blake Perkins: Rehabbing in Arizona

    Perkins (oblique) will report to the Brewers' spring training complex in Arizona this week to continue workouts, Curt Hogg of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

    The Brewers haven't clarified where exactly Perkins stands in his recovery from the left oblique strain that has sidelined him since Aug. 11, but the fact that he's working out in Arizona and isn't being shut down from baseball activities can be taken as a positive sign. Perkins will eventually need to complete a minor-league rehab assignment before returning from the 10-day injured list, likely at some point in September. Once activated, Perkins is expected to be limited to a depth role in the Milwaukee outfield.

  • Brewers' Blake Perkins: Placed on injured list

    The Brewers placed Perkins on the 10-day injured list with a left oblique strain.

    Between his struggles at the plate and the emergence of Sal Frelick, Perkins' playing time has declined recently. Now, he'll be put on the shelf for at least 10 days while Abraham Toro comes up from Triple-A Nashville to take his spot on the bench.

  • Brewers' Blake Perkins: Heads to bench Wednesday

    Perkins is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Reds.

    Though he'll take a seat for the series finale, Perkins should remain one of the primary beneficiaries from a playing-time perspective now that the struggling Jesse Winker (back) -- who had already been starting to lose out on starts -- was moved to the injured list Wednesday. Tyrone Taylor will fill the opening in the outfield Wednesday while Christian Yelich picks up the start at Winker's vacated designated-hitter spot.

  • Brewers' Blake Perkins: Moves to bench Monday

    Perkins is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Reds.

    Perkins will return to the bench after he went 4-for-15 with one double, three walks, three RBI, two runs and one stolen base while starting in each of the past five games. Though he's nominally the Brewers' fourth outfielder, he could end up holding down a semi-regular starting role while designated hitter Jesse Winker has fallen out of favor. Winker is on the bench Monday for the third time in five games against a right-handed pitcher, so the Brewers could end up rotating a number of their other regulars at DH rather than settling on a full-time option.

  • Brewers' Blake Perkins: Swipes fourth bag

    Perkins went 2-for-3 with a walk, a double, two runs scored, two RBI and a stolen base in Wednesday's 5-3 win over the Phillies.

    Getting the start in left field and batting eighth against southpaw Cristopher Sanchez, Perkins produced his first multi-hit performance since July 1 while stealing his fourth bag of the season. The 26-year-old is batting just .167 (5-for-30) on the month, but seven walks have given him a respectable .324 OBP. He's been on the bench against the last four right-handed starters the Brewers have faced, with Raimel Tapia getting a look in Perkins' place, and Tyrone Taylor is also healthy again. The three will continue to jockey for playing time in the third outfield spot alongside Christian Yelich and Joey Wiemer.

  • Brewers' Blake Perkins: Losing work to Tapia

    Perkins will start in left field and bat eighth in Wednesday's game against the Phillies.

    Perkins appeared to have a hold on a near-everyday spot in the Milwaukee outfield heading into the All-Star break, but Wednesday will mark just his second start in five second-half games. Both of the switch-hitting Perkins' starts have come versus left-handed pitching, so he may be viewed as a short-side platoon player at this point. Raimel Tapia appears to have supplanted Perkins as the Brewers' preferred option in right field versus right-handed pitching.

  • Brewers' Blake Perkins: Sitting Friday

    Perkins isn't in the Brewers' lineup Friday against the Reds.

    Tyrone Taylor was reinstated from the injured list Friday, so manager Craig Counsell will give him the start in right field. Perkins is just 3-for-24 with one RBI since the start of July.

  • Brewers' Blake Perkins: Out of Sunday's lineup

    Perkins is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Reds.

    Perkins started the first two games of the series versus Cincinnati, but he's mired in a 1-for-17 slump and will sit for Sunday's finale. Raimel Tapia will take over in right field for the final game before the All-Star break.

  • Brewers' Blake Perkins: On bench Thursday

    Perkins is out of the lineup Thursday against the Cubs.

    Perkins has become something close to an everyday player for the Brewers over the last month, but he's hitless in his last four games and is slashing just .231/.310/.333 in 89 total plate appearances this year. Raimel Tapia will start in right field and bat fifth Thursday versus Chicago.

  • Brewers' Blake Perkins: Gaining hold of everyday role

    Perkins will start in left field and bat fifth in Sunday's game against the Pirates.

    Perkins will pick up his eighth consecutive start in the outfield after going 7-for-28 (.250 average) with a stolen base and a 2:9 BB:K over the previous seven games. The switch-hitting Perkins has seemingly gained traction in Milwaukee's regular lineup against both right- and left-handing pitching, while Owen Miller has hit the bench more frequently against righties to clear a spot for Perkins.

  • Brewers' Blake Perkins: Swipes bag Sunday

    Perkins went 2-for-3 with a walk and a stolen base in Sunday's win over the Guardians.

    Perkins tallied his third multi-hit effort in eight games since June 11 and is now slashing .474/.524/.632 over that span. His hot bat should afford him some additional opportunities in the lineup, but he's situated in an outfield depth role and that seemingly won't change unless an injury opens up more playing time.

  • Brewers' Blake Perkins: Belts second long ball

    Perkins hit a solo home run in his only at-bat in a 5-0 victory versus Pittsburgh on Saturday.

    Perkins came on as a pinch hitter for Raimel Tapia in the eighth inning and slugged a 423-foot solo shot to give Milwaukee a five-run cushion. Perkins has been effective when given a chance recently, collecting six hits and driving in five runs over his past 11 at-bats. However, that span stretches out to nine days since the rookie is buried on the Brewers' outfield depth chart.

  • Brewers' Blake Perkins: Hits grand slam Saturday

    Perkins went 2-for-4 with a grand slam, an additional run scored and an additional RBI during Saturday's 10-8 victory over the Reds.

    Perkins was recalled from Triple-A Nashville on Saturday and was thrown right into the starting lineup, batting ninth and playing right field. He recorded only one hit across 10 appearances (12 at-bats) during his first stint in the big leagues in April, so his offensive outburst versus Cincinnati is certainly noteworthy. The 26-year-old figures to provide depth to Milwaukee's outfield while Tyrone Taylor (elbow), Jesse Winker (neck) and Garrett Mitchell (shoulder) are unavailable, but Perkins isn't guaranteed regular starts, as Christian Yelich, Joey Wiemer and Brian Anderson will presumably man the outfield on a regular basis.

  • Brewers' Blake Perkins: Recalled from Triple-A

    Milwaukee recalled Perkins from Triple-A Nashville on Saturday.

    The 26-year-old will give the Brewers some much-needed outfield depth with Tyrone Taylor (elbow) joining Jesse Winker (neck) and Garrett Mitchell (shoulder) on the injured list. Perkins has hit the ball well this year at the Triple-A level, but he's gone 1-for-12 with five strikeouts and zero walks in 10 major-league games.

  • Brewers' Blake Perkins: Sent to Triple-A

    The Brewers optioned Perkins to Triple-A Nashville on Monday, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.

    The team hasn't announced a corresponding move, but it could mean Tyrone Taylor (elbow) will return from the injured list Tuesday. Perkins went 1-for-12 at the dish in his first stint in the majors.

  • Brewers' Blake Perkins: Back to bench Tuesday

    Perkins is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Tigers.

    Perkins had started each of the Brewers' last three games, but he went just 1-for-8 with four strikeouts during that stretch and will now head to the bench. The Brewers have a long-term opening in the outfield with Garrett Mitchell (shoulder) soon set to undergo what could be a season-ending surgery, but Perkins hasn't made an early case to receive a regular role.

  • Brewers' Blake Perkins: Gets third straight start

    Perkins will start in left field and will bat eighth in Monday's game against the Tigers.

    The switch-hitting Perkins will stick in the lineup for the third game in a row, this time facing off against a lefty (Matthew Boyd) after going 1-for-5 with a run scored across a pair of starts versus right-handers (Garrett Whitlock and Brayan Bello) over the weekend. The Brewers seem to be giving Perkins a look as an everyday player in the outfield in the wake of Garrett Mitchell's (shoulder) long-term absence, but Perkins is still expected to have a short leash and will need to begin producing at the plate in order to maintain a regular role.
