SEVEN MINOR LEAGUE PLAYERS RELEASED

The Brewers made a handful of roster moves on the minor league side as well on Tuesday, announcing the release of seven players, including pitchers Mitch Lambson, Cesar Jimenez, Kaleb Earls and Alex Farina, first basemen Cody Decker and Tyrone Perry and outfielder Nick Cain.

Lambson, 26, was taken by the Brewers in the minor league portion of the Rule 5 Draft in 2015 and saw time at three different levels for Milwaukee last season, going a combined 3-0 with a 3.00 earned run average.

Jimenez, 32, made 16 relief appearances for Milwaukee in 2015, before sitting out all of last season. He returned this spring, working in minor league camp for the Brewers before his release.

Earls, 24, was a 13th round pick in 2014 and saw time with Maryvale and Brevard County in 2016.  In  21 relief outings, he went 1-0 with a 7.20 ERA.

Farina, 23, signed with the Brewers as an undrafted free agent in June of 2015 and appeared in 47 games during his two-year career in Milwaukee’s system. In 33 games last season at Wisconsin, he went 5-2 with a 2.83 ERA.

Decker, 30, signed with the Brewers in January and hoped to land a utility job as he worked at catcher as well, but he played strictly first base this spring after missing time while playing in the World Baseball Classic.

Perry, 21, was a 14th round pick in 2015 but struggled with his weight and played in just 36 games during his two season with the Brewers, hitting .272 with three home runs.

Cain, 23, was selected just last season in the 27th round and appeared in 34 AZL games for Maryvale after signing.  He hit just .183 with four doubles and a pair of triples.
