  • Brewers' Jakob Junis: Covers three innings Saturday

    Junis tossed three innings out of the bullpen in Saturday's 6-4 loss to the Padres, giving up two runs on four hits and no walks while striking out two.

    Though it might not have been manager Pat Murphy's plan heading into the day, Junis essentially piggybacked starter Carlos F. Rodriguez, who was pulled from the contest after laboring through four innings and racking up 72 pitches. Meanwhile, Junis -- who was making his first appearance since April 2 following his recent reinstatement from the 60-day injured list -- was far more efficient, needing just 39 pitches to record nine outs while largely steering clear of damage until Kyle Higashioka took him deep in the seventh inning for a two-run home run. With Rodriguez now 0-3 with a 7.30 ERA through his first three big-league starts, it wouldn't be surprising if the Brewers optioned him to Triple-A Nashville to open up a starting spot for Junis, who had previously been part of the Opening Day rotation before landing on the shelf in April.

  • Brewers' Jakob Junis: Reinstated from IL

    The Brewers activated Junis (shoulder) from the 60-day injured list Friday.

    After winning a spot in Milwaukee's Opening Day rotation, Junis made only one start before being placed on the IL with a pinched nerve in his throwing shoulder. A few weeks later, his recovery was delayed after he was hit in the head by a ball during batting practice. Two months later, Junis will finally return to Milwaukee's active roster after he covered 4.1 innings over two rehab appearances with Triple-A Nashville before throwing a four-inning simulated game earlier this week. The right-hander is expected to work out of the bullpen as a long-relief option for now before eventually re-entering the rotation. Bradley Blalock was optioned to Double-A Biloxi in a corresponding move.

  • Brewers' Jakob Junis: Looking at relief role initially

    Junis (shoulder) will be activated from the 60-day injured list for this weekend's series in San Diego, but he could be used in relief initially, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.

    Officially, the Brewers are saying Junis' role is to be determined. However, they've already listed Bryse Wilson, Colin Rea, Carlos F. Rodriguez and Tobias Myers as their four starters for the series with the Padres. Rodriguez would seem to be the most at risk of losing his rotation spot, so Junis could end up replacing him if Rodriguez falters in Saturday's start. The right-handed Junis threw four innings in a simulated game earlier this week, so he's stretched out for a possible long-relief appearance this weekend.

  • Brewers' Jakob Junis: Expected to join team in San Diego

    Brewers manager Pat Murphy said Monday that Junis (shoulder) is expected to return from the 60-day injured list during the team's four-game road series against the Padres that begins Thursday, Todd Rosiak of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

    Junis will meet the team in San Diego, barring any discomfort following his simulated game in Arizona on Monday. The 31-year-old has been on the injured list since April 6 with a right shoulder impingement and had his return further delayed when he was struck in the head by a ball during the Brewers' April 22 batting practice session. He looks to have recovered from both injuries, however, and appears to be on the cusp of a return to the major-league roster. Given that Junis already built up to four innings in a sim game prior to Monday's outing, he should be a candidate to join the Brewers' depleted rotation this weekend.

  • Brewers' Jakob Junis: Could join Brewers next week

    Junis (shoulder) will pitch another sim game in Arizona on Monday before potentially joining the Brewers roster, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.

    The Brewers embark on a seven-game West Coast road trip Monday, playing three games in Los Angeles and four in San Diego. Already in Arizona, Junis could rejoin the team during that stretch, though it's unclear if he'd immediately return to the rotation or would be eased in with a bullpen role. The 31-year-old was moved to Arizona from Triple-A Nashville due to velocity concerns and most recently threw a four-inning simulated game Wednesday.

  • Brewers' Jakob Junis: Simulated game set for Wednesday

    Junis (shoulder) will throw a four-inning simulated game Wednesday in Arizona, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.

    Junis made a 2.1-inning rehab start Saturday with Triple-A Nashville, but his velocity wasn't where he and the Brewers hoped. If his velocity bounces back during Wednesday's simulated game, it's possible he could be cleared to return from the 60-day injured list next week. Junis has been sidelined since early April, first with a right shoulder impingement and then with a head injury that occurred when he was hit by a ball during batting practice. The Brewers could have a spot in their injury-ravaged rotation available for Junis once he returns from the IL, though the team may prefer to ease him back into the mix in a multi-inning role out of the bullpen.

  • Brewers' Jakob Junis: Ready for third rehab outing

    Junis (shoulder) will continue his rehab assignment Wednesday in Arizona and will pitch in either a simulated game or in a rookie-level Arizona Complex League game, Curt Hogg of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

    The right-hander made his second rehab outing with Triple-A Nashville on Saturday and allowed one run on two hits and one walk over 2.1 innings. Depending how Wednesday's outing goes, Junis could then be cleared to return from the 60-day injured list, but it's unclear whether the Brewers plan to have him serve in a starting role or as a multi-inning reliever.

  • Brewers' Jakob Junis: Covers two innings in rehab start

    Junis (shoulder/head) struck out three over two perfect innings in his rehab start Tuesday with Triple-A Nashville.

    According to MLB.com, Brewers manager Pat Murphy said that Junis reported no issues with his shoulder coming out of the rehab appearance, his first at any level since he was placed on the injured list April 6. The Brewers haven't yet decided on a role for Junis once he's ready to come off the 60-day IL, but with injuries beginning to pile up in the rotation, the right-hander could slot into a starting role once he gets fully stretched out in the minors. After throwing 21 pitches Tuesday, Junis is expected to increase his workload when he makes his second appearance for Nashville on Saturday.

  • Brewers' Jakob Junis: Beginning rehab outings

    Junis (shoulder/head) will begin his minor-league rehab assignment Tuesday with Triple-A Nashville, Todd Rosiak of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel Reports.

    The righty has been on the shelf since April 6 due to a right shoulder impingement and had his return timeline pushed back further after he was stretchered off the field April 22 when he was struck in the head by a foul ball in batting practice. After resuming his throwing program a few weeks ago, Junis reported to the Brewers' spring complex in Arizona last week and checked out fine after facing hitters. He'll likely require multiple rehab outings to build up his pitch count and potentially put himself in consideration for a spot in Milwaukee's rotation.

  • Brewers' Jakob Junis: Cleared for rehab assignment

    Junis (shoulder/head) is headed to Triple-A Nashville to begin a rehab assignment, Todd Rosiak of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

    The specific date of Junis' first rehab start with Nashville isn't clear, but it's imminent. Junis has been on the shelf since early April, first with a right shoulder impingement and then with a head injury that occurred when he was hit by a ball during batting practice. It's not clear how many rehab starts he might require, but it should be at least a couple given how long he's been out.

  • Brewers' Jakob Junis: Tossing bullpen

    Junis (shoulder/head) threw a bullpen session ahead of Tuesday's game against the Cubs, Curt Hogg of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

    Junis has resumed his throwing program after his rehab from a right shoulder impingement was derailed by a ball that struck him in the head during batting practice April 22. The right-hander was shifted from the 15-day IL to the 60-day IL shortly after the incident and is on schedule for a return sometime in June. Hogg also reports that Junis is set for a live bullpen session Friday and would begin a rehab assignment next week if the live bullpen session goes well.

  • Brewers' Jakob Junis: Shifts to 60-day IL

    The Brewers transferred Junis (shoulder/head) from the 15-day injured list to the 60-day IL on Monday.

    Junis initially went on the IL back in early April with a right shoulder impingement but had a more recent setback when he was struck in the head by a ball during batting practice. As a result of being transferred to the 60-day IL, Junis will be moved off the 40-man roster and won't be eligible for activation until June 2.

  • Brewers' Jakob Junis: On mend from batted ball to head

    Junis (shoulder) resumed traveling with the Brewers and said Friday that he's feeling better after he was struck in the head by a batted ball during the batting practice in Pittsburgh on Monday, Todd Rosiak of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

    Junis was sent to a Pittsburgh-area hospital for further evaluation after he was struck by a ball off the bat of Pirates infielder Alika Williams prior to Monday's series opener. Fortunately for Junis, an MRI and CT scan both returned clean, so his buildup program for his recovery from a right shoulder impingement should be relatively uninterrupted. Junis' lone appearance with Milwaukee prior to being shelved with the shoulder injury came as a starter, but Brewers manager Pat Murphy recently suggested that the right-hander might return from the IL in a relief role.

  • Brewers' Jakob Junis: Hit in head with ball during BP

    Junis (shoulder) was struck in the head by a ball during batting practice in Pittsburgh on Monday, Kevin Gorman of TribLive.com reports.

    Junis was down on the field for several minutes after a ball hit by a Pirates player caught him in the head. He was alert and responsive after eventually getting to his feet and was taken to an area hospital for evaluation. Junis is currently on the injured list with a right shoulder impingement and had recently began a throwing program.

  • Brewers' Jakob Junis: Not close to returning

    Junis (shoulder) remains limited to throwing on flat ground, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.

    Junis will be eligible for activation from the 15-day injured list this weekend, but it doesn't sound like he's close to returning. The 31-year-old is in the early stages of ramping things back up as he works his way back from a right shoulder impingement.

  • Brewers' Jakob Junis: Lands on IL

    The Brewers placed Junis on the 15-day injured list Saturday, retroactive to Wednesday, with a right shoulder impingement.

    Junis first reported a problem with his shoulder shortly after his start Tuesday against the Twins. The 31-year-old righty underwent imaging Friday, and although the results came back clean, the Brewers won't risk pushing it. The plan is for him to rest for a couple days before ramping back up, so an extended stay on the IL doesn't seem likely. Aaron Ashby was recalled from Triple-A Nashville in a corresponding move and will presumably take Junis' spot in Milwaukee's rotation.

  • Brewers' Jakob Junis: Next start in doubt

    Junis has been dealing with a shoulder issue since his last start Tuesday, Curt Hogg of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

    Brewers manager Pat Murphy said the team is still waiting for imaging results to come back on Junis' shoulder, which will offer more information on whether or not the right-hander will be able to make his next start -- tentatively scheduled for Monday versus the Reds. Should Junis miss his turn through the rotation, Aaron Ashby will come up from Triple-A Nashville to take his place.
