Player Outlook
Joey Wiemer came up just short of making the Brewers' Opening Day roster but was added for the second game of the season after Luis Urias got hurt on Opening Day. The rookie operated as the team's everyday center fielder for four months and offered flashes of production, including in June when he posted an .848 OPS with six home runs. Wiemer struggled with consistency and in making contact (28.3 percent strikeout rate), though, and eventually found himself in a reserve role in August and back in the minors by September. There's 20-20 potential here if Wiemer can show some growth at the dish, but his defense is well ahead of his offense right now and Milwaukee looks to have others ahead of him on their outfield depth chart.

  • Brewers' Joey Wiemer: Optioned down Sunday

    The Brewers optioned Wiemer to Triple-A Nashville on Sunday. With Oliver Dunn being recalled by Milwaukee, Joey Wiemer will head back to Nashville less than a week after returning a knee injury that had him on the injured list. Wiemer has gone 4-for-26 in his 19 appearances this year with the Brewers.

  • Brewers' Joey Wiemer: Returns from injured list

    The Brewers activated Wiemer (knee) from the 10-day injured list Monday. Wiemer has missed most of May with a left knee strain but is ready to roll after a brief rehab assignment. He will provide outfield depth for the Brewers and could draw the occasional start against left-handers.

  • Brewers' Joey Wiemer: Begins rehab assignment

    Wiemer (knee) went 1-for-3 with a run scored in his first rehab game with Triple-A Nashville on Thursday. Wiemer has been out since early May with a left knee strain but has made enough progress to test things out in a game setting. Because he hasn't missed much time, Wiemer's rehab assignment shouldn't last more than a few days.

  • Brewers' Joey Wiemer: Facing 2-to-3-week absence

    Brewers manager Pat Murphy said Sunday that Wiemer (knee) is expected to be sidelined for 2-to-3 weeks, Curt Hogg of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. Milwaukee placed Wiemer on the 10-day injured list Saturday with a strained popliteus muscle in his left knee, an injury he suffered in Friday's win over the Cubs. While Wiemer will be sidelined for beyond the minimum 10 days, he won't require surgery and will be able to treat the injury with rest and rehab. Once he completes his rehab assignment and is activated from the IL, Wiemer could be optioned to Triple-A Nashville, depending on the overall health of the Milwaukee outfield.

    Wiemer was diagnosed with a strained popliteus muscle in his left knee Saturday, Curt Hogg of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. Wiemer added that the results of his MRI revealed no ligament damage.

  • Brewers' Joey Wiemer: Lands on IL

    The Brewers placed Wiemer (knee) on the 10-day injured list Saturday.

  • Brewers' Joey Wiemer: Promoted Sunday

    The Brewers recalled Wiemer from Triple-A Nashville on Sunday. The 25-year-old failed to make Milwaukee's Opening Day roster but is being called up Sunday as outfield depth since Christian Yelich (back) is banged up. Wiemer will start in left field Sunday could split playing time there with Blake Perkins field should Yelich end up on the injured list.

  • Brewers' Joey Wiemer: Fails to make Opening Day roster

    The Brewers optioned Wiemer to Triple-A Nashville on Friday, Sophia Minnaert of Bally Sports Wisconsin reports.

The 25-year-old will be given regular at-bats with Nashville.

  • Brewers' Joey Wiemer: Fine after early removal

    Wiemer was not injured during Thursday's Cactus League game against the White Sox despite leaving the game early, Curt Hogg of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. Wiemer was shaken up a bit on a play near the outfield wall in the third inning and walked into the Brewers' clubhouse with a trainer after striking out in the top of the fourth, but his removal doesn't appear to have been injury-related. Wiemer was scheduled to make an early exit from the game anyway in order to travel to Las Vegas for Milwaukee's upcoming exhibition game against the Athletics. The 25-year-old outfielder has struggled to get going at the plate this spring, managing just four hits in 23 at-bats while striking out nine times.

The Brewers should have more information on Wiemer's condition shortly.

  • Brewers' Joey Wiemer: Cracks roster for NL WC Series

    Wiemer is part of the Brewers' roster for their NL Wild Card Series matchup against the Diamondbacks. Wiemer finished out the regular season with Triple-A Nashville, but the Brewers have opted to carry seven different outfielders into this best-of-three series versus Arizona. The 24-year-old could serve as a late-inning defensive replacement or maybe even a pinch-hitting option against lefties. He posted an .815 OPS against southpaws this year at the MLB level.

  • Brewers' Joey Wiemer: Sent back to Triple-A

    Wiemer was optioned to Triple-A Nashville on Sunday. Wiemer operated as Milwaukee's primary center fielder earlier this season, but he's worked in a reserve role of late and has a .483 OPS in 61 at-bats since the start of August. Blake Perkins (oblique) was reinstated from the injured list in a corresponding move.

  • Brewers' Joey Wiemer: Dealing with laceration in mouth

    Wiemer sustained a laceration in his mouth on a collision during Sunday's game against the Yankees, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports. Wiemer entered Sunday's matchup as a defensive replacement in the bottom of the ninth inning and went 1-for-1 with a double, a run and an RBI in the extra-innings loss. He sustained his injury during an outfield collision, but it's unclear whether he'll be forced to miss additional time. He should tentatively be considered day-to-day ahead of Monday's series opener against Miami.

  • Brewers' Joey Wiemer: Added to lineup Tuesday

    Wiemer has been added to the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Twins. Wiemer will cover center field and bat ninth versus the Twins and right-hander Bailey Ober after Sal Frelick was scratched due to lingering right hamstring soreness. Wiemer is slashing just .215/.290/.379 across his first 115 major-league games this year and has seen a significant dip in playing time in recent weeks.

  • Brewers' Joey Wiemer: Playing time trending down

    Wiemer is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Rangers. Wiemer has operated as Milwaukee's primary center fielder for most of the season, but he'll sit Sunday for the sixth time in the past eight games, with both of those starts coming against left-handed pitchers. It appears the 24-year-old will now have to settle for a spot on the small side of a platoon in center field. Sal Frelick is dealing with a hamstring injury, so it'll be Christian Yelich, Tyrone Taylor and Mark Canha starting from left to right in the outfield.

  • Brewers' Joey Wiemer: Sitting Saturday

    Wiemer isn't in the Brewers' lineup Saturday against the White Sox. Wiemer is 8-for-27 (.296) with three RBI since the beginning of August and will catch a breather Saturday.

  • Brewers' Joey Wiemer: Returns to lineup

    Wiemer (illness) is starting in center field and batting ninth Friday against the White Sox.

  • Brewers' Joey Wiemer: Will get breather

    Wiemer is not in the lineup for Monday's game against the Rockies. Wiemer has done a fair amount of hitting in recent weeks, but he has not handled right-handers well all season, and he will be held out Monday with righty Peter Lambert on the mound for the Rockies. Sal Frelick will man center field in Wiemer's place.

  • Brewers' Joey Wiemer: Out of Sunday's lineup

    Wiemer is not in the lineup for Sunday's game in Atlanta. Wiemer started the past five games after sitting twice last weekend, and he'll return to the bench Sunday after going 4-for-17 with a double, three RBI and a run during that stretch. Blake Perkins will start in center field and bat ninth.

  • Brewers' Joey Wiemer: Sitting in second straight

    Wiemer is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against Atlanta. Wiemer is on the bench for a second straight day, with Adam McCalvy of MLB.com relaying that the consecutive absences fall in the category of a baseball decision rather than the outfielder dealing with an unreported injury. Though he already looks like one of the better defensive center fielders in the majors, the rookie's production at the plate has slipped of late. Since the start of July, Wiemer is slashing .200/.333/.300 with two extra-base hits in 16 games.
