Wooten was optioned to Triple-A Nashville on Monday.
Wooten had a 4.36 ERA and 1.36 WHIP over 33 innings with the Brewers this season, but most of that damage was done by a five-run outing in which he failed to record an out. The Brewers will instead try something different in the bridge to closer Francisco Rodriguez, as they selected the contract of Jeremy Jeffress from Nashville to take Wooten's place on the roster. If the team finds themselves in need of another bullpen arm at any point, Wooten's name could likely be called upon once again.
