Yesterday's Results

Twins 6, Brewers 4

Yovani Gallardo's struggles continue as he gave up six runs in five innings last night, allowing eight hits and a walk with six strikeouts. Most of the damage came on two home runs, a three-run shot in the third and a two-run shot in the fifth. The Brewers put up four runs and had the tying run at the plate in the ninth, but couldn't complete a comeback and fell to the Twins.

The Brewers have options for the first pick in the draft.

With the MLB Draft tomorrow, the Brewers have been doing their research for the draft. Of course, with the MLB Draft, no one really knows how anything beyond the first few picks will go. Derek has some thoughts on how it could play out, going through some possibilities for that first pick by the Brewers. There's no way to know for sure what the Brewers will go for with that pick. At least we know what some of the possibilities could be.

No Brewers are currently in the starting lineup for the All-Star game.

The second update for the All-Star game came out yesterday for the NL, and the Brewers currently don't occupy any starting spots on the roster. Adam McCalvy has the details from the last voting update, including current totals and positions. Ryan Braun fell from the starters in the outfield, but is still in striking distance, along with Carlos Gomez, who made some progress. Meanwhile, Jonathan Lucroy moved up to third, and Aramis Ramirez fell to third. It's surprising the Brewers don't have more for starters considering their record, but there's still time to make up ground.
