Roster Moves Before Boston Series
This is late but before the Brewers traveled to Boston they made to roster moves (no neither was bringing up Russell Branyan, which sucks), both moves involved pitchers. First they placed relief pitcher David Riske on the 15 day DL with an elbow injury. In his place they called up RHP Mark DiFelice from AAA Nashville. DiFelice has spent 11 years in the minor leagues and will make his big league debut when the Brewers call on him at some point probably this weekend. The second move was sending relief pitcher Mitch Stetter down to AAA Nashville and calling up LHP Zach Jackson. Stetter who was very good when he first got called up this season struggled mightly during his last few outings allowing 8 walks. Smart move with Stetter, I like Mitch a lot and think he will be back at some point this season but he was starting to go "Turnbow" and just couldn't find the plate. Jackson was up for the Brewers in 2006 and was pitching well in Nashville since being moved to the bullpen from the starting rotation.
