Top Pitching Performance of the Week

Freddy Peralta was fantastic against the Rockies to kick off the road trip. Peralta fired six innings of two-run ball, striking out 10 and inducing a career-high 25 swings and misses.

Top Hitting Performance of the Week

William Contreras continued his hot start to his Brewers career, picking up three extra-base hits throughout the week, including a home run in Sunday’s win. Contreras slashed .263/.333/.526 on the week.

Injury Notes & Roster Moves

Tyrone Taylor & Adrian Houser

Taylor and Houser both returned from the injured list this week. Blake Perkins and Tyson Miller returned to Triple-A Nashville as the corresponding moves for each player.

Taylor picked up just three hits on the week, one of them a home run in Colorado. Houser made his season debut on Sunday, throwing 4 23 innings of two-run ball against the Giants.

Bennett Sousa

The Brewers recalled Sousa, whom they acquired from the Reds last month in a minor trade, on Friday. While Sousa did not appear in a game during the Giants series, he gave the Brewers another left-handed option in the bullpen behind Hoby Milner. Jake Cousins was optioned to Triple-A.
