The Rangers travel to Milwaukee for a short series against the Brewers. Milwaukee has lost 7 straight. Milwaukee has struggled in all offensive categories. The Brewers are dead last in batting average. No team in the league has fewer stolen bases and only team in the league has fewer home runs. Only two teams in the league have scored fewer runs and only two teams in the league have a worse OBP. Only one team in the American League has a higher bullpen ERA than Milwaukee.

Cleveland RP Jim Crawford has a torn rotator cuff and will miss 5 months.
