  • Brewers' Colin Rea: Earns win in bulk-relief role

    Rea (9-3) allowed two runs on five hits and a walk while striking out seven over 5.2 innings to earn the win Sunday over the Nationals.

    Rea was lit up for seven runs over five innings in his last start, so the Brewers opted to have him work behind an opener Sunday. The plan was a success, as he turned in a strong performance, with the seven strikeouts being one shy of his season high. The 34-year-old has put up decent numbers this year with a 3.77 ERA, 1.21 WHIP and 76:31 K:BB over 105 innings across 19 appearances (16 starts). Rea should remain in the Brewers' rotation following the All-Star break, though it's unclear if he'll resume working as a traditional starter or end up pitching behind an opener more often in the second half.

  • Brewers' Colin Rea: Working behind opener Sunday

    Rea is expected to serve as a bulk reliever behind opening pitcher Rob Zastryzny in Sunday's game against the Nationals, Todd Rosiak of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

    Rea was roughed up for a season-high seven earned runs in his previous start Tuesday versus the Pirates, so manager Pat Murphy will have the right-hander work behind an opening pitcher for Rea's final turn through the rotation before the All-Star break with the hope of netting better results. Zastryzny is unlikely to cover more than an inning or two before giving way to Rea.

  • Brewers' Colin Rea: Yields seven runs in loss

    Rea (8-3) allowed seven runs on six hits and two walks while striking out three over five innings, taking the loss Tuesday versus the Pirates.

    Rea had his best start of the year last Wednesday at Colorado, turning in seven shutout innings, but he followed it up with a season-high seven runs against this time. The right-hander's lack of consistency is a little concerning, though this was just the second time in his last eight appearances that he's given up more than three runs. For the season, Rea is sporting a 3.81 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and 69:30 K:BB through 99.1 innings over 18 appearances (16 starts). He's tentatively projected for a home start versus the Nationals in his next outing.

  • Brewers' Colin Rea: Twirls seven shutout innings

    Rea (8-2) earned a win over the Rockies on Wednesday, tossing seven shutout innings while striking out four and allowing six hits.

    Rea had his best start of the season in this one. It was just the second time this year he's gotten to seven innings and just the third time he's managed to not issue a walk. He generated 10 outs via grounders, which played a big part in his success at hitter-friendly Coors Field. Rea has now allowed two earned runs or fewer in seven of his last eight starts and has been a lynchpin in a Brewers rotation that has been depleted by injuries. The 33-year-old now owns a 3.34 ERA, 1.20 WHIP and 66:28 K:BB in 94.1 innings. He lines up to face Pittsburgh at home next week.

  • Brewers' Colin Rea: Fans eight in win

    Rea (7-2) yielded two runs on three hits and two walks over 5.1 innings Friday, striking out eight and earning a win over the Cubs.

    Rea looked strong aside from a speed bump in the fourth inning. He gave up a solo shot to Seiya Suzuki before Dansby Swanson drove in another run. Rea set new season highs with eight strikeouts and 15 whiffs, including six via the sinker. He hasn't lost a start since May 19; in seven outings since then, he's 4-0 with a 3.03 ERA. Rea is now sporting a 3.61 ERA and 62:28 K:BB through 87.1 innings. His next start is projected to be in Colorado.

  • Brewers' Colin Rea: Pushed back in pitching schedule

    Rea is no longer listed as the Brewers' probable starting pitcher for Wednesday's game against the Rangers, Curt Hogg of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

    The Brewers haven't provided an explanation for the change, and Rea isn't believed to be dealing with any sort of injury, so he may just be getting pushed back in the pitching schedule so that Milwaukee can have him available to make a start against the divisional-rival Cubs over the weekend. Milwaukee has yet to announce a replacement starter for Wednesday's contest, but newly acquired lefty Dallas Keuchel would be available on four days' rest to take the hill against the Rangers if the Brewers choose to add him to the 40-man roster. Rea gave up a season-high-tying five earned runs his last time out Friday in San Diego but had rung up a 1.93 ERA and 0.93 WHIP over his five starts before that.

  • Brewers' Colin Rea: Yields five runs

    Rea allowed five runs on six hits and two walks while failing to record a strikeout over 5.1 innings in a no-decision versus the Padres on Friday.

    This was the first time all year Rea's failed to log a strikeout, and it's just the third time in 15 appearances (13 starts) he's been on the hook for five runs. The right-hander's poor outing has him at a 3.62 ERA, 1.24 WHIP and 54:26 K:BB through 82 innings. Rea is projected to make his next start at home versus the Rangers.

  • Brewers' Colin Rea: Fans six in win

    Rea (6-2) yielded three runs (two earned) on four hits and a walk over six innings Sunday, striking out six and earning a win over the Reds.

    Rea allowed a run in each of the first, third and fourth innings Sunday but limited the damage enough to deliver his second straight quality start. He forced nine swinging strikes, his best total since generating 11 against the Pirates on May 13. The 33-year-old righty has been very consistent over his last five starts, posting a 1.93 ERA with a 19:7 K:BB through 28 frames. Rea lowered his season ERA to 3.29 through 76.2 innings. His next start is lined up to be in San Diego.

  • Brewers' Colin Rea: Completes seven innings in win

    Rea (5-2) earned the win against the Blue Jays on Monday, allowing one run on three hits and no walks with four strikeouts over seven innings.

    Rea allowed a solo home run to Alejandro Kirk in the third inning then needed just 85 pitches to complete seven frames for the first time this season. After throwing four scoreless innings in bulk relief last week, this marked the most innings Rea has pitched in a major league game since 2016. While Rea has alternated starts with bulk relief appearances in his past four outings, he has gone 2-0 and yielded just four runs over 22 innings during that stretch. On the season, he owns a 3.31 ERA, 1.26 WHIP and 48:23 K:BB in 11 starts and two relief outings.

  • Brewers' Colin Rea: Goes four innings in bulk relief

    Rea didn't factor into the decision Tuesday against the Phillies, allowing four hits and two walks over four scoreless innings. He struck out two.

    Rea entered in the second inning after Jared Koenig opened the game with 1.1 scoreless frames. Rea would manage to hold the Phillies off the board for four innings, though he'd need 70 pitches to record 12 outs. It's the second time so far this year that Rea's worked behind an opener. Overall, he's 4-2 with a 3.53 ERA, 1.35 WHIP and 44:23 K:BB across 63.2 innings. Rea's currently in line for a road matchup with the Tigers on Sunday, though it's unclear if he'll work as a traditional starter or in a bulk role again.

  • Brewers' Colin Rea: Set to work behind opener Tuesday

    Rea is expected to pitch in bulk relief behind opening pitcher Jared Koenig in Tuesday's game against the Phillies in Philadelphia, Sophia Minnaert of Bally Sports Wisconsin reports.

    Koenig is expected to receive his second opener assignment in as many days after he needed just five pitches to retire the Phillies' top three hitters in Monday's 3-1 win. Look for Koenig to work no more than an inning or two Tuesday before turning the game over to Rea, who previously worked behind Koenig on May 25 in Boston. The arrangement ended up working out well for Rea's fantasy managers, as he picked up the win against the Red Sox that day while allowing two runs and striking out two batters over 5.2 innings.

  • Brewers' Colin Rea: Solid vs. Cubs

    Rea didn't factor into the decision Thursday against the Cubs, allowing one run on five hits and a walk over 5.1 innings. He struck out five.

    Cody Bellinger's solo home run in the first inning was the lone damage against Rea on Thursday, and he'd ultimately depart in the sixth after throwing 79 pitches. The 33-year-old Rea has now held opponents to two runs or fewer in consecutive outings after giving up 12 runs in his previous three starts (15 innings). Overall, he's 4-2 on the year with a 3.77 ERA, 1.34 WHIP and 42:21 K:BB across 59.2 innings. Rea is currently in line for a tough road matchup with the Phillies in his next outing.

  • Brewers' Colin Rea: Nabs win as bulk reliever

    Rea (4-2) notched the win Saturday in Boston, yielding two runs on three hits and three walks over 5.2 frames. He recorded two strikeouts.

    Jared Koenig opened and did yeoman's work, retiring all four batters he faced, including three via strikeout. Rea then took over and put up a bunch of zeros himself before the Red Sox finally broke through in the seventh, scoring a couple runs on three hits. The right-hander had come into this one with a 7.20 ERA over his last three outings, which might be why the Brewers elected to use an opener to switch things up. Rea is likely to face the Cubs next, although whether it will be as a traditional starter or bulk reliever again is unclear.
