News: Kirkman was designated for assignment by the Brewers on Thursday.
Impact: Kirkman appeared in just one game for the Brewers after being claimed off waivers by the team earlier in May, but he was removed from the roster to open up a spot for fellow reliever Jhan Marinez, who was acquired via trade from the Rays. Kirkman's next step will be determined after his waiver period comes to a close.

News: Kirkman was claimed off waivers by the Brewers on Thursday.
Impact: Kirkman had been designated for assignment Monday by the Padres after giving up four earned runs in his only appearance with the team. He is out of options, so he will report to the big club and work out of the bullpen.

News: The Padres designated Kirkman for assignment Monday, Dennis Lin of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
Impact: During his brief stint with the Padres over the last week, Kirkman made one disastrous relief appearance, giving up four runs on six hits across 1.1 innings. With his removal from the 40-man roster, the Padres are clearly signaling that the southpaw will have a hard time returning to the majors this season.
