  • Brewers' Janson Junk: Optioned to Triple-A

    The Brewers optioned Junk to Triple-A Nashville on Friday.

    The Brewers officially activated Aaron Civale on Friday after acquiring him in a trade with the Rays on Wednesday, so Junk will head back to Nashville in order to create room on the 26-man roster. The 28-year-old righty didn't appear in a game during his 48-hour stint with Milwaukee, but he could be an option to return to the majors if the Brewers need a fresh arm in their bullpen.

  • Brewers' Janson Junk: Back with Brewers

    The Brewers recalled Junk from Triple-A Nashville on Wednesday.

    Since his last appearance in the majors May 5, Junk has posted a 1.17 ERA and 1.24 WHIP alongside a 19:5 K:BB across 15.1 innings in Triple-A. He'll now be called upon to add depth to Milwaukee's bullpen as Enoli Paredes (forearm) heads to the injured list.

  • Brewers' Janson Junk: Sent to Triple-A

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

    Junk was called up from Triple-A on Saturday but didn't make any appearances out of the Milwaukee bullpen before being sent back to Nashville. He's made some starts with Nashville this season and could be thrust into the rotation as he rejoins the affiliate after the Brewers recalled two of Triple-A club's starters (Aaron Ashby and Tobias Myers) on Wednesday.

  • Brewers' Janson Junk: Back in Milwaukee

    The Brewers recalled Junk from Triple-A Nashville on Saturday.

    Junk will come up from the minors to fill the open spot in Milwaukee's pitching staff following the demotion of Tobias Myers to Triple-A on Saturday. Junk made three appearances for the Brewers during his first big-league stint this season, giving up five earned runs over five innings. He's turned in a 2.45 ERA and 1.36 WHIP with Nashville since being sent back down, but he will likely be limited to low-leverage work in the majors. The 28-year-old righty also has experience as a starter, opening the door for a potential spot start if Joe Ross (back) isn't able to return from the injured list when eligible June 5.

  • Brewers' Janson Junk: Recalled from Triple-A

  • Brewers' Janson Junk: Sent back to minors

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

  • Brewers' Janson Junk: Recalled from Triple-A

    The Brewers recalled Junk from Triple-A Nashville on Saturday.

    With the Brewers down another starting pitcher following the news that Wade Miley (elbow) will need to undergo Tommy John surgery, Junk will come up from the minors to presumably fill the open spot in Milwaukee's rotation. His time in the majors will likely be brief, as Jakob Junis (shoulder/head) and DL Hall (knee) are both projected to return from the injured list within the next couple of weeks. Jared Koenig was optioned to Triple-A Nashville in a corresponding move.

  • Brewers' Janson Junk: Sent packing to Triple-A

    The Brewers optioned Junk to Triple-A Nashville on Tuesday, Curt Hogg of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

    Junk had appeared headed overseas earlier this offseason, but he wound up sticking in the Brewers organization and will report to Nashville to begin the season. The 28-year-old should be part of Nashville's rotation.

  • Brewers' Janson Junk: Seeking move to NPB

  • Brewers' Janson Junk: Back in big leagues

    Junk was recalled from Triple-A Nashville on Sunday, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.

    Junk made his lone big-league appearance of the season in April and allowed five runs (four earned) over 4.2 frames in a start at Arizona. He also underwhelmed at Triple-A with a 4.18 ERA over 140 innings but will rejoin the big club for the final game of the regular season.

  • Brewers' Janson Junk: Optioned out to Triple-A

    Junk was optioned to Triple-A Nashville on Thursday.

  • Brewers' Janson Junk: Gives up five runs in spot start

    Junk (0-1) took the loss Wednesday, allowing five runs on seven hits and two walks over 4.2 innings during a 7-3 loss to Arizona. He struck out two.

    Junk was just called up from Triple-A Nashville on Tuesday and filled in for Brandon Woodruff, who was recently moved to the 15-day injured list with a shoulder injury. The young right-hander struggled early and often, but his biggest blemish came on a three-run homer by Lourdes Gurriel in the third, which gave Arizona a 4-0 lead. Junk figures to remain in the rotation for another turn or two, but he's currently not an attractive streaming option.

  • Brewers' Janson Junk: Confirmed to start Wednesday

    Brewers manager Craig Counsell confirmed after Tuesday's 7-1 win over the Diamondbacks that Junk will start the series finale in Arizona on Wednesday, Curt Hogg of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

    As expected after he was called up from Triple-A Nashville earlier Tuesday, Junk will be filling the rotation spot of Brandon Woodruff (shoulder), who was moved to the 15-day injured list. Junk had turned in a pair of five-inning outings over his first two appearances at Nashville, striking out seven while allowing just eight baserunners.

  • Brewers' Janson Junk: Called up, possibly starting

    The Brewers recalled Junk from Triple-A Nashville on Tuesday, and he could be a candidate to start Wednesday's game in Arizona, Sophia Minnaert of Bally Sports Wisconsin reports.

    Unless he's needed out of the bullpen in Tuesday's game against the Diamondbacks, Junk will be joining the rotation as a replacement for Brandon Woodruff, who was placed on the 15-day injured list with right shoulder inflammation. Over his first two outings at Nashville, Junk has turned in a 0.90 ERA and 0.80 WHIP across 10 innings. Junk should be reasonably stretched out for Wednesday's start, but his poor track record in a limited sample of big-league action with the Angels in 2021 and 2022 makes him a risky streaming option.

  • Brewers' Janson Junk: Heads to minor-league camp

    Junk was optioned Monday to Triple-A Nashville by the Brewers, Curt Hogg of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

    Acquired by the Brewers in the Hunter Renfroe deal over the winter, Junk allowed six runs in 8.1 innings for the Angels prior to being dealt and spent most of last season at the Triple-A level. The right-hander will likely be an up-and-down option for the Brewers in the 2023 season.
