  • Brewers' Blake Perkins: Serving as fourth outfielder

    Perkins is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Nationals.

    After making his fifth consecutive start in Thursday's 1-0 loss to the Pirates, Perkins has now found himself on the bench twice in the Brewers' three-game series with the Nationals. The switch-hitting Perkins should still be a regular part of the lineup against left-handed pitching, but he looks set to serve as Milwaukee's fourth outfielder more often than not when the team faces righties.

  • Brewers' Blake Perkins: Getting fifth straight start

    Perkins will start in center field and bat ninth in Thursday's game against the Pirates.

    Though he'll stick in the lineup for a fifth straight start after going 4-for-15 with a home run, three walks and a stolen base across the prior four contests, Perkins still looks to be the Brewers' fourth outfielder. Each of Perkins' prior four starts came against left-handers, and he'll remain in the lineup Thursday against Pirates right-hander Paul Skenes while Jackson Chourio exits the starting nine in what appears to be a routine off day. Some combination of Chourio, Garrett Mitchell, Sal Frelick and Christian Yelich still appears to be the Brewers' preferred starting outfield trio and designated hitter versus right-handed pitching.

  • Brewers' Blake Perkins: Registers steal Wednesday

    Perkins went 0-for-3 with two walks and a stolen base in Wednesday's 9-0 win over the Pirates.

    Perkins was hitless for just the second time over six games in July, but he was still able to make an impact on the bases. The outfielder is 6-for-19 (.316) with three walks this month. For the season, he has 14 steals on 16 attempts, six home runs, 28 RBI, 38 runs scored and a .249/.326/.365 slash line through 279 plate appearances. The switch hitter has benefited from a run of four straight opposing southpaws, starting each of those games to give Garrett Mitchell and Sal Frelick each two off days. Perkins doesn't have a spot in the lineup regularly against right-handers and hasn't started against one since June 28.

  • Brewers' Blake Perkins: Back on bench after three starts

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

    Perkins had started in center field in each of the last three games, but he'll retreat to the bench Wednesday and still looks to be viewed as the team's fourth outfielder. Christian Yelich, Sal Frelick and Jackson Chourio will form the Milwaukee outfield from left to right Wednesday and look to be manager Pat Murphy's preferred trio against right-handed pitching.

  • Brewers' Blake Perkins: Idle again Saturday

    Perkins is out of the lineup for Saturday's game against the Padres.

    Perkins will be on the bench for a second straight game and is 0-for-11 in his last four games. Christian Yelich, Sal Frelick and Jackson Chourio fill the outfield from left to right.

  • Brewers' Blake Perkins: Not starting Friday

    Perkins is not in the starting lineup for Friday's game against the Padres.

    Perkins has struggled over his last 10 games, going 4-for-31 with a 34.3 percent strikeout rate, and he has not recorded a hit over his last four games. Sal Frelick, Jackson Chourio and Christian Yelich will man the outfield Friday while Tyler Black serves as the designated hitter against Padres right-hander Dylan Cease.

  • Brewers' Blake Perkins: Sitting again Wednesday

    Perkins isn't in the Brewers' lineup for Wednesday's game against the Angels.

    Although the Angels will start Wednesday's game with southpaw Tyler Anderson on the mound, the Brewers will put the lefty-hitting Sal Frelick in center field rather than the switch-hitting Perkins, who is just 1-for-16 in his last five games.

  • Brewers' Blake Perkins: Resting Tuesday

    Perkins isn't in the Brewers' lineup for Tuesday's game versus the Angels.

    Perkins has gone just 1-for-16 with six strikeouts across his last five games, and he'll now get a day to regroup Tuesday. His absence will put Christian Yelich, Sal Frelick and Jackson Chourio in the outfield while William Contreras (head) serves as the designated hitter, allowing Gary Sanchez to start at catcher.

  • Brewers' Blake Perkins: Two hits, steal in loss

    Perkins went 2-for-4 with a stolen base in Tuesday's 3-0 loss to the Blue Jays.

    Perkins was the only Brewer with multiple hits in the contest. He's surged at the plate with seven multi-hit efforts and five extra-base hits over his last 12 contests, going 16-for-42 (.381) in that span. The outfielder is up to a .259/.330/.389 slash line with seven steals, five home runs, 21 RBI and 33 runs scored through 215 plate appearances, though he also has a 26.5 percent strikeout rate that could ultimately drag down his batting line in the long run. As long as he's hitting, Perkins should see a starting role in center field.

  • Brewers' Blake Perkins: Sitting Monday

    Perkins is not in the starting lineup for Monday's series opener against the Blue Jays.

    Perkins will begin Monday's game in the dugout after starting in each of the last six games. Over that span, the 27-year-old has gone 8-for-21 with two triples and two RBI. Sal Frelick will shift to center field while Jackson Chourio will start in right field against Toronto right-hander Jose Berrios.

  • Brewers' Blake Perkins: Two triples in win

    Perkins went 3-for-4 with a pair of triples, two RBI and three runs scored in Friday's 10-0 win over the Tigers.

    Perkins extended Milwaukee's lead to 3-0 in the second inning with an RBI triple, the first of his career, before driving in another run with his second three-bagger in the fifth. The 27-year-old Perkins has been swinging the bat well -- he's now 13-for-30 (.433) over his last eight games with five extra-base hits and six RBI. Overall, he's slashing .260./332/.398 across 202 plate appearances this year with five homers, 32 runs scored, 21 RBI and six stolen bases.

  • Brewers' Blake Perkins: Getting Sunday off

    Perkins is out of the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the White Sox.

    Perkins will watch from the bench as Milwaukee finishes out its series against the White Sox. The outfielder has gone 6-for-20 with four RBI and one home run in the Brewers' last two series and will cede center-field duties to Sal Frelick on Sunday.

  • Brewers' Blake Perkins: Goes deep Wednesday

    Perkins went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run and a double in Wednesday's 10-6 win over the Cubs.

    Perkins went yard as part of a five-run third inning for the Brewers. That homer was his first since he hit a long ball against the Cubs on May 4. He hit a poor .164 with a .388 OPS over 20 contests between homers. For the season, Perkins is slashing .232/.318/.361 with five homers, 17 RBI, 25 runs scored, five stolen bases and five doubles across 176 plate appearances while seeing a majority of the playing time in center field.

  • Brewers' Blake Perkins: Swipes two bags Friday

    Perkins went 2-for-3 with a walk, two runs scored and two stolen bases in Friday's 7-2 win over the Red Sox.

    Getting the start in center field and batting ninth, Perkins swiped his first bags in May and reached base three times, extending a hot streak that has seen him go 7-for-15 over the last six games with three walks. The 27-year-old has gained more playing time of late, but manager Pat Murphy will likely continue riding the hot hand among his outfielders, giving Perkins little job security without a longer run of success at the plate.

  • Brewers' Blake Perkins: Heads to bench amid slump

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

    Perkins will head to the bench after he went 0-for-10 with four strikeouts while starting each of the final three games of the Brewers' weekend series with the Cardinals in center field. The 27-year-old is slashing just .111/.179/.222 through 10 games in May, and his ongoing struggles at the dish may start to cost him some playing time. Jackson Chourio will move back into a starting role in the outfield Monday at Perkins' expense.

  • Brewers' Blake Perkins: Not starting Thursday

    Perkins isn't in the Brewers' lineup for Thursday's game against St. Louis.

    Perkins has cooled off considerably after a hot start, slashing just .136/.208/.273 with two RBI across his last six games. His absence Thursday will move Sal Frelick into center field while Jake Bauers picks up a start in right field, batting eighth.

  • Brewers' Blake Perkins: Homers in win

    Perkins went 1-for-5 with a two-run home run during the Brewers' 7-6 win over the Yankees on Friday.

    Perkins' two-run shot in the third inning gave Milwaukee a 4-2 lead over the Yankees, helping the Brewers to an extra-inning victory. The 27-year-old has been a pleasant surprise for the Crew early in the year, slashing .313/.421/.500 through 76 plate appearances. His role as a near-everyday outfielder will come to an end once Christian Yelich (back) returns from the injured list, but Perkins' recent production could allow him to enter the lineup somewhat regularly even after Yelich is healthy.

  • Brewers' Blake Perkins: Moving into regular role

    Perkins will start in center field and bat ninth in Wednesday's game against the Padres.

    Despite going hitless with a pair of strikeouts in four at-bats in Tuesday's 6-3 loss, Perkins will remain in the lineup for a fifth straight game. Perkins owns an .895 OPS over 38 plate appearances on the season and looks poised to maintain a near-everyday role in the Milwaukee outfield while Christian Yelich (back) is on the injured list.

  • Brewers' Blake Perkins: Late-game heroics not enough

    Perkins went 3-for-4 with a solo home run and an additional run scored during Sunday's 6-4 loss to Baltimore.

    Perkins belted a go-ahead homer in the seventh inning off Yennier Cano. However, the Orioles immediately took back the lead in the bottom of the seventh. Still, Perkins racked up his second three-hit game of 2024 and has generated a hit in six of seven appearances. In 26 at-bats, Perkins owns a team-leading .385 batting average with a 1.082 OPS.
