  • 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.

  • Brewers' Blake Perkins: Homers, swipes bag

    Perkins went 1-for-2 with a solo home run, two runs scored and a stolen base in Wednesday's win over Cincinnati. He also walked and was hit by a pitch in the contest.

    Perkins stole second after being hit by a pitch to open the fourth inning and then eventually came around to score Milwaukee's sixth run on a sacrifice fly from Jackson Chourio. The outfielder wasn't done yet, however, adding a solo shot off Hunter Greene in the sixth, giving him his first long ball of the season. Perkins has now hit safely in all four games he's played, racking up four RBI, five runs and two stolen bases over that stretch.

  • Brewers' Blake Perkins: Productive from No. 9 spot

    Perkins went 3-for-5 with three RBI, two runs scored and a stolen base in Tuesday's 9-5 win over Cincinnati.

    Perkins opened the scoring in the third inning with a two-run single before swiping his first bag of the year and scoring on a Christian Yelich hit. The 27-year-old switch-hitter would add a third RBI with another base hit in the sixth. It was just the third start of the season for Perkins -- he's now 5-for-13 on the year with three RBI and three runs scored after slashing .217/.325/.350 with four homers and five stolen bases through 67 games as a rookie last season. Perkins will likely remain the fourth outfielder in Milwaukee until Garrett Mitchell (hand) is ready to return from the IL.

  • Brewers' Blake Perkins: Will sit Saturday vs. Mets

    Perkins is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Mets.

    Perkins started in center field Friday and finished 1-for-4 with one strikeout. Sal Frelick will get the start in center field Saturday and bat in the leadoff spot against Mets right-hander Luis Severino.

  • Brewers' Blake Perkins: Starting in center field

    Perkins is starting in center field and batting sixth in Friday's opener against the Mets.

    Most of Perkins' playing time this season will probably come against lefties, and he's in the lineup Opening Day versus southpaw Jose Quintana. However, the switch-hitting Perkins was not great against left-handers in a 58-plate appearance sample last season with just a .603 OPS.

  • Brewers' Blake Perkins: Makes Opening Day roster

    Perkins has made the Brewers' Opening Day roster, Curt Hogg of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

    Perkins should see quite a bit of playing time in right field against lefties and could get some starts versus righties, too, if Garrett Mitchell (hand) isn't ready. The 27-year-old put up a .675 OPS over 168 plate appearances with the Brewers last season.

  • Brewers' Blake Perkins: Pops solo homer

    Perkins went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Thursday's win against the Cardinals.

    Perkins opened the scoring in Thursday's victory with a 390-foot solo homer off Miles Mikolas in the third inning. The 27-year-old rookie has started four of five games since returning from an oblique injury Sept. 17. Perkins is known for his glove and speed and is slashing .217/.322/.326 with three homers and five steals over 60 games.

  • Brewers' Blake Perkins: Starting in return from IL

    Perkins (oblique) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list and is starting in center field and batting ninth Sunday versus the Nationals.

    Perkins has been sidelined by the oblique injury since Aug. 11 but will rejoin the Brewers after a four-game rehab assignment. The 27-year-old has a .212/.311/.297 slash line across 56 games this season and should operate as a depth outfielder.

  • Brewers' Blake Perkins: Set for rehab games

    Perkins (oblique) was cleared to begin a rehab assignment Tuesday with Triple-A Nashville, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.

    Perkins has spent the last couple of weeks working out at the Brewers' spring training complex in Arizona and is now ready for a return to live games. The 27-year-old outfielder has been on the shelf since Aug. 11 because of a left oblique strain.

  • Brewers' Blake Perkins: Rehabbing in Arizona

    Perkins (oblique) will report to the Brewers' spring training complex in Arizona this week to continue workouts, Curt Hogg of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

    The Brewers haven't clarified where exactly Perkins stands in his recovery from the left oblique strain that has sidelined him since Aug. 11, but the fact that he's working out in Arizona and isn't being shut down from baseball activities can be taken as a positive sign. Perkins will eventually need to complete a minor-league rehab assignment before returning from the 10-day injured list, likely at some point in September. Once activated, Perkins is expected to be limited to a depth role in the Milwaukee outfield.

  • Brewers' Blake Perkins: Placed on injured list

    The Brewers placed Perkins on the 10-day injured list with a left oblique strain.

    Between his struggles at the plate and the emergence of Sal Frelick, Perkins' playing time has declined recently. Now, he'll be put on the shelf for at least 10 days while Abraham Toro comes up from Triple-A Nashville to take his spot on the bench.

  • Brewers' Blake Perkins: Heads to bench Wednesday

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

    Though he'll take a seat for the series finale, Perkins should remain one of the primary beneficiaries from a playing-time perspective now that the struggling Jesse Winker (back) -- who had already been starting to lose out on starts -- was moved to the injured list Wednesday. Tyrone Taylor will fill the opening in the outfield Wednesday while Christian Yelich picks up the start at Winker's vacated designated-hitter spot.

  • Brewers' Blake Perkins: Moves to bench Monday

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

    Perkins will return to the bench after he went 4-for-15 with one double, three walks, three RBI, two runs and one stolen base while starting in each of the past five games. Though he's nominally the Brewers' fourth outfielder, he could end up holding down a semi-regular starting role while designated hitter Jesse Winker has fallen out of favor. Winker is on the bench Monday for the third time in five games against a right-handed pitcher, so the Brewers could end up rotating a number of their other regulars at DH rather than settling on a full-time option.

  • Brewers' Blake Perkins: Swipes fourth bag

    Perkins went 2-for-3 with a walk, a double, two runs scored, two RBI and a stolen base in Wednesday's 5-3 win over the Phillies.

    Getting the start in left field and batting eighth against southpaw Cristopher Sanchez, Perkins produced his first multi-hit performance since July 1 while stealing his fourth bag of the season. The 26-year-old is batting just .167 (5-for-30) on the month, but seven walks have given him a respectable .324 OBP. He's been on the bench against the last four right-handed starters the Brewers have faced, with Raimel Tapia getting a look in Perkins' place, and Tyrone Taylor is also healthy again. The three will continue to jockey for playing time in the third outfield spot alongside Christian Yelich and Joey Wiemer.

  • Brewers' Blake Perkins: Losing work to Tapia

    Perkins will start in left field and bat eighth in Wednesday's game against the Phillies.

    Perkins appeared to have a hold on a near-everyday spot in the Milwaukee outfield heading into the All-Star break, but Wednesday will mark just his second start in five second-half games. Both of the switch-hitting Perkins' starts have come versus left-handed pitching, so he may be viewed as a short-side platoon player at this point. Raimel Tapia appears to have supplanted Perkins as the Brewers' preferred option in right field versus right-handed pitching.

  • Brewers' Blake Perkins: Sitting Friday

    Perkins isn't in the Brewers' lineup Friday against the Reds.

    Tyrone Taylor was reinstated from the injured list Friday, so manager Craig Counsell will give him the start in right field. Perkins is just 3-for-24 with one RBI since the start of July.
