Brewers’ Segura reinstated from DL, Kintzler designated for assignment
After Friday's moves -- including removing Jean Segura (pictured) from the disabled list -- the Brewers now have two open spots on their 40-man roster, one of which will be used to recall a starting pitcher to fill the void left by Wily Peralta’s injury.
Kintzler has a 6.43 ERA in seven innings for the Brewers this season. The right-hander was designated for assignment by Milwaukee on April 21 before his contract was purchased from Triple-A Colorado Springs on May 7.
The Brewers had been carrying nine relievers since recalling right-hander David Goforth to replace injured starter Wily Peralta on Monday.
Milwaukee also has outrighted right-hander Rob Wooten to Colorado Springs, removing him from the 40-man roster. Wooten is currently pitching for the Sky Sox after being optioned to Triple-A on May 7.
The Brewers now have two open spots on their 40-man roster, one of which will be used to recall a starting pitcher to fill the void left by Peralta’s injury. According to FOXSports.com’s Ken Rosenthal, Double-A right-hander Tyler Wagner will be summoned to start Sunday against the Diamondbacks.
