To fill the Wisconsin roster spot left by RHP Tommy Toledo's promotion to Brevard County, catcher Tyler Roberts has been activated from the Rattlers DL.

The 25-man roster has 12 pitchers and 13 position players now (including three catchers).

From Huntsville:

RHP Baker to Nashville; LHP Garman to Huntsville

MOBILE, Ala. – The Milwaukee Brewers and Huntsville Stars have made a pair of roster moves prior to tonight’s game at Mobile. RHP Brian Baker has been transferred to Triple-A Nashville. To fill the empty roster spot, LHP Brian Garman has been transferred to Huntsville from High-A Brevard County. Garman will be active for tonight’s game at Mobile.

Baker threw a gem in last night’s 3-2 loss to Mobile. He pitched seven innings of one-hit ball, giving up two unearned runs while striking out five. That was just his second appearance for the Stars, after being transferred from Nashville on July 3.

The 23-year-old Garman is making his first trip to the Double-A level. He went 3-3 with a 1.88 ERA in 22 appearances (one start) for the Brevard County Manatees. In 38.1 innings, he struck out 46 batters and only allowed 12 walks. The Ohio native was drafted by the Brewers in the 17 th round of the 2010 First-Year Player Draft.

With these moves, the Stars active roster is at 25, the Southern League limit.

The Sounds roster is now full at 25 with Brian Baker's addition.

If Tim Dillard accepts his assignment to Nashville and continues his 10th season in the Brewers' organization (Nashville is also where Dillard calls home), then the Sounds will need to make another move.

27-year-old LHP Victor Garate (ugly numbers this year) released from Nashville to make room for Tim Dillard, who accepted his outright assignment.

As per the Stars --

The Brewers have released 25-year-old OF Scott Krieger (career stats), who had been on the Huntsville 7-day DL retroactive to June 28th.

We won't know if there was an actual injury or whether it was a bit of a phantom DL "holding spot" in this instance.

Krieger was a 19th round pick in 2009 out of George Mason. Beyond rookie ball, you'll notice from the year-by-year stat lines linked above that Krieger was getting playing time on a "4th outfielder" level.

Via Chris Mehring:

ROSTER MOVES: RHP Chad Thompson has been placed on the Timber Rattlers disabled list retroactive to July 19. RHP Eric Semmelhack has been transferred from Helena to the Rattlers. Semmelhack, a Wisconsin native, was selected by the Brewers in the 12th round of the 2012 draft out of the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. Semmelhack had been 1-3 with a 4.02 ERA in six starts for the Helena Brewers.

McCalvy reports Yosmer Leal, 16 year old pitcher from Venezuela, signed for $370K which is a biggish number. Contingent on physical exam and age investigation.

Based on Tuesday night tweets, we should see RHP Maverick Lasker active on the Wisconsin roster again soon (from Maryvale rehab stint, lower back).

Soon-to-be 22-year-old Dominican Summer League RHP Eduard Reyes (career stats, 3rd year in the system) gets a needed bump stateside to Maryvale and the Arizona Brewers Rookie League club. Reyes has allowed 13 unearned runs this year (of the 20 overall), so his numbers, while gaudy, show that he needs to limit the damage when necessary.

***

Also, and this is a bit of a surprise, but 2011 2nd round RHP Jorge Lopez (stats) makes the opposite trip, and is heading to the DSL. The 19-year-old, drafted out of a Puerto Rico high school, had pitched well as of late after a few rough appearances. To be honest, I don't remember reading about Lopez' proficiency in English in the past, perhaps this is a way to transition him back to the language formation program the Brewers have within the Brewers' Dominican Academy (speculation on my part).

interesting to hear Lopez needs to get a passport. Wonder if this was in the works for some time, but contingent on that formality

Local pitcher gets call up to majors
By Marco Vigliotti, High River Times (Alberta, Canada) Assistant Editor

Former Okotoks Dawgs RHP Jim Henderson is finally getting the chance to play in the majors after spending eight years in the minor league ranks and transforming into one of the Milwaukee Brewers’ top pitching prospects.

Henderson, 29, was called up from the Nashville Sounds (AAA) Wednesday night. He is expected to be in the lineup for the Brewers when they play host to the NL leading Washington Nationals on Thursday night.

Henderson phoned Okotoks Dawgs coach Brandon Newell to tell him about the major league call up late Wednesday night.

The team immediately took to Twitter to announce the news.

The Calgary native is in the midst of a breakout year with the Sounds, posting a 1.67 ERA and 15 saves in 35 appearances. Earlier in the month, Henderson was selected to the Pacific Coast League (PCL) All-Star team.

The 6’5 relief pitcher helped Canada win baseball gold at the 2003 Pan-Am Games in the Dominican Republic. He played most of his youth baseball in the Okotoks Dawgs system.

Henderson was selected in the 26th round by the now relocated Montreal Expos in the 2003 MLB amateur draft. He has played in the minors since 2003, mostly in the triple-A leagues.

Coincidentally, Henderson is expected to make his MLB debut against the franchise he was originally drafted by. The Montreal Expos relocated to Washington and became the Nationals in 2005.

Henderson’s name has been bandied about in Milwaukee baseball circles all season long as a possible solution for the team’s struggling bullpen. Their bullpen boasts a dreadfully .276 batting average against, and have given up 145 walks, the third most in the NL.

The bullpen woes have required some intensive attention from the coaching staff, including a closed door meeting between the pitching staff and Brewers manager Ron Roenicke, early Wednesday morning.

The Brewers currently sit nine games under .500 and have lost seven of their past ten games.

The other player response tweets to Mitch make me think that Stetter & Dillard in the same clubhouse would be must-see TV.

Pretty soon, the entire Nashville roster will be former Brewers. I count 16, including the DL.

Via the Manatees:

ROSTER MOVES: RHP Brooks Hall & OF Franklin Romero Jr. placed on DL. RHP Andy Moye & C Parker Berberet activated from DL.

Hall was lifted after a shaky three innings on Wednesday. Hopefully a minor issue, good to see Moye back so quickly -- always a breath-holder with any sidelined pitcher.
