News: Kintzler (knee) was reinstated from the 15-day DL and optioned to Triple-A Colorado Springs on Wednesday.
Impact: The Brewers will allow Kintzler to get back to form against Triple-A hitters before possibly calling him up in September. Earlier this season the Brewers attempted to designate Kintzler for assignment but that was then rescinded and he needed to be placed on the 15-day DL. With this in mind, it seems the Brewers are probably not as high on the 31-year-old righty as they used to be.

News: Kintzler (knee) will begin a rehab assignment with the Brewers' Rookie League club Tuesday.
Impact: Kintzler has been on the DL since late May with tendinitis in his left knee, but it appears he's finally close to returning. The right-hander has split the season between the Brewers and Triple-A -- making seven starts for each club -- and it's unclear to which level he'll be assigned after his rehab stint.
