david freitas acquired from seattle for a minor leaguer and optioned to san antonio. it appears that freitas will be burning his second option in just a matter of days if he remains optioned.

corey knebel moved to the 60-day injured list.

the 40-man remains at capacity.


Freitas is an extremly weak hitting catcher. He looks to be either AA or AAA backup material.


Actually Freitas isn't a bad hitter at all. He had a .955 OPS in 39 games in AAA last year and has a .996 OPS so far this year between Tacoma and San Antonio.


Frietas in MLB: .214/.270. SLG .313. He seems like an AAAA type. Good in minors, bad in majors.

alex wilson has been designated for assignment. the brewers have seven days to trade, release or outright wilson to the minors.

jay jackson has his contract selected. he has three minor league options remaining.

the roster remains at capacity.

both jake petricka and alex wilson have been outrighted to class aaa san antonio. presumably, both have accepted the minor league assignments.

So what is the deal with Jay Jackson? Will a team scoop him up? Will he still end up with the AAA team and an option again later in the season?

If he clears waivers, Jackson can elect to reject an outright assignment and become a free agent. So he could get claimed, or not get claimed and become a FA, or not get claimed and accept the assignment to San Antonio.

If he accepts the assignment to San Antonio and the Brewers later add him back to the 40-man, he could still be optioned as necessary.

A lot of lives are impacted by unexpected events such as Chase’s blister and the 18-inning game. This is why 2-3 spots need to be reserved for players with no long-term role in the organization.

I believe Burch Smith has one option remaining.

And That said:

I believe Burch Smith has one option remaining.

and that is correct on both jay jackson and burch smith. the club has seven days to trade, release or try to outright jackson to the minor leagues. if jackson refuses the assignment, he voids his contract in becoming a free agent.

if the club wishes to outright smith to the minor leagues instead of optioning him, he faces the same situation as jackson, as he has been outrighted to the minor leagues before.

the 40-man roster remains at capacity.

From Adam McCalvy's Twitter: "Jay Jackson was assigned outright to Triple-A San Antonio. Brewers had designated him for assignment the other day, but he stays in the organization."

jay jackson spent only two days optioned to the minor leagues before being designated for assignment (which immediately removed him from the 40-man roster). if he spends another 18 days in the minor leagues while on the 40-man roster, he will burn his first option.

keston hiura has his contract selected and has three minor league options intact. travis shaw to the 10-day injured list. cory spangenberg has been designated for assignment.

the brewers have seven days to trade, release or outright spangenberg to the minors. spangenberg has not been outrighted to the minor leagues before, so if he clears waivers, he will be forced to accept the minor league assignment.

the roster remains at capacity.

hernan perez has been designated for assignment. the brewers have seven days to trade, release or try to outright him to the minor leagues.

perez has been outrighted before. if he is not claimed by another team, he reserves the right to refuse the minor league assignment and become a free agent.

the roster is at 39.

as we now know, hernan perez went unclaimed and accepted an outright assignment to san antonio. he will be a minor league free agent after this season.

the 40-man spot vacated by him didn't stay open for long.

deolis guerra has his contract selected from san antonio, with aaron wilkerson being optioned there.

guerra is out of minor league options, and has been outrighted to the minor leagues before. if the brewers wish to send deolis guerra to the minor leagues, he must first clear waivers. if he is not claimed by another team, he reserves the right to refuse the minor league assignment and become a free agent.

the roster is at 40.

This is not a issue if they need that spot.

It's a little bit alarming how many guys we have waived this year and retained the rights for--including the last position player on the roster the last 4 years. I thought this was a deep team coming into the year but I guess notso much.

It’s largely a financial issue with the players not a depth issue with the team. If a player is Designated for Assignement, clears waivers and is assigned to the minor leagues as a non roster (40 man) player and they don’t report, the organization isn’t obligated to pay them. For players like H.P. thats serious dough. Even Alex Wilson is at $750,000 so for those type of players it’s a slice of humble pie but reporting to the minors is probably a no brainer financially.

Conversely, the Brewers don’t flat out release these players because their contract is a sunk cost and they may as well see if the player can figure it out and maybe deliver something of value

Is it? Every team in MLB is looking for roster flexibility at the bottom of the 25- and 40-man roster. It seems that fringe MLB players who are out of options typically have a difficult go of it regardless of which organization they are with. I imagine most teams have several players that fall into that category as well, which hinders being able to churn the bottom of the roster.

bringing this forward as jackson's contract was selected yesterday while optioning mauricio dubon.

if the brewers wish to outright jackson to the minor leagues again, he reserves the right to refuse the assignment, voiding his contract, and become a free agent.

however, jackson still has all three minor league options intact, and is still 18 days away from burning his first option.

the roster is at 40.
