  • Red Sox's Jason Alexander: Inks deal with Boston

    Alexander signed a minor-league contract with the Red Sox on Feb. 20.

    Alexander made 18 appearances (11 starts) for the Brewers in 2022 and had a 5.40 ERA and 46:28 K:BB over 71.2 innings. He spent last season at the Triple-A level and had a 5.86 ERA in 16 outings, and he'll serve as organizational pitching depth for the Red Sox.

  • Brewers' Jason Alexander: Taken off 40-man roster

    Alexander cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Nashville on Monday, Curt Hogg of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

    Alexander is now no longer part of the Brewers' 40-man roster. The swingman has missed a large chunk of this season with a shoulder issue, and while he is healthy now, he has just a 5.23 ERA and 18:9 K:BB over 31 innings this year in the minors.

  • Brewers' Jason Alexander: Activated, optioned to Triple-A

    The Brewers reinstated Alexander (shoulder) from the 60-day injured list Saturday and optioned him to Triple-A Nashville, Adam McCalvy of reports.

    A right shoulder strain forced Alexander to the injured list before the start of the season. His last three rehab starts came in Nashville, and he will remain in Triple-A after surrendering just three runs on 15 hits and four walks while striking out six batters through 15 innings. If he continues at his current pace in Nashville, Alexander could potentially work his way back onto the Brewers as a multi-inning reliever.

  • Brewers' Jason Alexander: Beginning rehab assignment

    Alexander (shoulder) is beginning a rehab assignment Friday in the Arizona Complex League, Adam McCalvy of reports.

    Alexander has been on the shelf since February because of a right rotator cuff strain, but he's finally ready to take the mound again in live games. The 30-year-old could be an option for the Brewers' pitching staff toward the end of June.

  • Brewers' Jason Alexander: Placed on 60-day IL

    Alexander (shoulder) was placed on the 60-day injured list Saturday.

    By placing Alexander on the 60-day IL, the Brewers now have an open spot on the 40-man roster for Justin Wilson, who was signed Saturday. Alexander is expected to be out until the end of May because of right shoulder soreness, and this transaction doesn't change that timeline.

  • Brewers' Jason Alexander: Out with shoulder injury

    Alexander will be sidelined until around late May due to right shoulder soreness, Adam McCalvy of reports.

    Alexander's shoulder started bothering him last month when he ramped up his throwing program. It doesn't appear there's concern about any structural damage, but he'll need some down time. If healthy, Alexander could be used in a swingman role for the Brewers this season.

  • Brewers' Jason Alexander: Back in majors

    Alexander was recalled from Triple-A Nashville on Tuesday, Adam McCalvy of reports.

    With Matt Bush (illness) heading to the injured list, Alexander will rejoin the Brewers' bullpen for the final two games of the season. Alexander has allowed at least three earned runs in four of his last five appearances, his last coming Sept. 18 against the Yankees, when he allowed three earned runs over 3.2 innings.

  • Brewers' Jason Alexander: Sent back to minors

    The Brewers optioned Alexander to Triple-A Nashville on Wednesday.

    Milwaukee is scheduled to return starter Eric Lauer (elbow) from the injured list to take the hill for Friday's game in Cincinnati, so Alexander will end up losing his spot in the rotation and on the 28-man active roster. After being promoted from Nashville on Aug. 22, Alexander made six appearances (four starts) and turned in a 5.87 ERA and 1.52 WHIP across 23 innings.

  • Brewers' Jason Alexander: Allows three runs in no-decision

    Alexander allowed three runs on six hits and a walk while striking out five in 3.2 innings during Sunday's loss to the Yankees. He didn't factor into the decision.

    Alexander struggled against the long ball during Sunday's high-scoring matchup, giving up three home runs over the first three innings of the game, including back-to-back solo shots in the top of the third inning. The right-hander has given up at least three runs in four of his last five outings, and he's posted a 6.14 ERA and 20:8 K:BB in 22 innings during that time. He projects to make his next start on the road against Cincinnati on Friday.

  • Brewers' Jason Alexander: Tagged for five runs

    Alexander (2-3) took the loss to the Reds on Friday, allowing five runs on nine hits while striking out four and walking one over 5.1 innings.

    Alexander tossed 58 of 88 pitches for strikes in Friday's outing. Alexander has been used as both a starter and reliever throughout the season, but has struggled in both roles. Friday's outing was the 10th time in 17 outings that he has given up two or more earned runs. He has just three scoreless appearances totaling 4.2 innings. Alexander has made it through the sixth inning once this season, resulting in his only quality start. The righty will take a 5.29 ERA into his next appearance.

  • Brewers' Jason Alexander: Handed second loss

    Alexander (2-2) took the loss during Sunday's 5-1 defeat at the hands of the Diamondbacks, allowing three runs on five hits and four walks with three strikeouts in 4.2 innings.

    Alexander struggled with traffic on the bases each inning but was able to limit the damage to single runs in the second, third and fifth innings. The 29-year-old struggled to find the zone as he issued a season-high four free passes and tossed only 47 of 86 pitches for strikes. Alexander carries a 5.03 ERA and 1.58 WHIP into his next start, slated for next weekend against Cincinnati.

  • Brewers' Jason Alexander: Solid over five frames

    Alexander took a no-decision while giving up one earned run on three hits and a walk over five innings in a 4-2 loss to the Pirates on Tuesday. He struck out six.

    Alexander took advantage of his start against the weak Pirates lineup to reach five innings in an outing for the first time since July 17. The rookie has been shuttling between the minors and the big leagues lately and had previously worked out of the bullpen this month before garnering the start Tuesday over Adrian Houser, who was roughed up last week in his return from the injured list. Alexander threw 59 pitches Tuesday and looked in control throughout the night. According to Adam McCalvy of, Milwaukee lists Alexander as its starting pitcher for Sunday's game in Arizona, so he'll get at least one more chance to build on the strong showing against Pittsburgh and make a case for a more permanent rotation spot.

  • Brewers' Jason Alexander: In line for start Tuesday

    The Brewers list Alexander as their probable starter for Tuesday's game against the Pirates.

    Tuesday would have been Adrian Houser's turn through the rotation, but the Brewers could look to push back his next start or deploy him in tandem with Alexander after the 29-year-old righty labored in his return from the injured list last Wednesday, when the Dodgers knocked him around for five earned runs over 2.1 innings. In that same contest, Alexander came on to record 10 outs in relief, though he was tagged for three runs on three hits and one walk. The matchup with the Pirates is a far more favorable one on paper for Alexander, but his modest results in the big leagues to date don't make him the safest streaming option.

  • Brewers' Jason Alexander: Called up Monday

    Alexander was recalled from Triple-A Nashville on Monday.

    Alexander was sent to the minors Wednesday but will rejoin the big-league club after Aaron Ashby (shoulder) was placed on the 15-day injured list Monday. The Brewers haven't yet indicated what role Alexander will play following his call-up, but it's possible that he serves as a starting pitcher in Ashby's absence. Over 12 appearances (seven starts) in the majors this year, Alexander has posted a 5.18 ERA and 1.66 WHIP in 48.2 innings.

  • Brewers' Jason Alexander: Sent down by Milwaukee

    Alexander was optioned to Triple-A Nashville on Wednesday.

    Alexander made two relief appearances for the Brewers after being called up last week, and he tossed 3.2 scoreless innings. However, he'll head back to the minors after Trevor Kelley was recalled from Nashville on Wednesday.

  • Brewers' Jason Alexander: Rejoins major-league club

    Alexander was recalled from Triple-A Nashville on Sunday.

    The 29-year-old was sent to Triple-A in mid-July and will return to Milwaukee after spending a couple weeks in the minors. Alexander has a 5.60 ERA, 1.71 WHIP and 23:19 K:BB across 45 innings and should work as a multi-inning option out of the bullpen.

  • Brewers' Jason Alexander: Sent back to minors

    The Brewers optioned Alexander to Triple-A Nashville on Monday.

    After making starts in his first two appearances of the month for the Brewers, Alexander was deployed in a bulk-relief role in his final outing before the All-Star break in Sunday's loss to the Giants. He struggled mightily while working out of the bullpen, giving up seven earned runs on eight hits and two walks over five innings. The Brewers aren't certain to get Adrian Houser (elbow) back from the 15-day injured list by the time the team next requires a fifth starter July 26 versus the Twins, so prospect Ethan Small could be a candidate to get a call-up from Nashville to fill Alexander's spot in the rotation.

  • Brewers' Jason Alexander: Struggles in bulk role

    Alexander didn't factor into the decision during Sunday's 9-5 defeat at the hands of the Giants, allowing seven runs on eight hits and two walks with five strikeouts in five innings.

    Alexander was originally tabbed to start Sunday's game, but manager Craig Counsell opted to go with Aaron Ashby instead with Alexander to follow. Ashby surrendered two runs in one plus innings and the 29-year-old was brought in during the second without much better fortune. He was sunk by a five-run third that opened with three straight hits and concluded with four two-out runs, then served up a two-run Brandon Belt homer in the sixth. Alexander has now been tagged for seven runs in two of his last seven appearances and ends the first half with a 5.60 ERA and 1.71 WHIP with 23 strikeouts in 45 innings across 10 appearances and seven starts.
