The Brewers announced a roster move on Tuesday afternoon, placing right-handed pitcher Junior Guerra on the 10-day disabled list with a strained right calf and recalling lefty Brent Suter from Triple-A Colorado Springs.
Guerra, Milwaukee’s Opening Day starter, tossed three innings for the Brewers on Monday, allowing two runs on just one hit before pulling up lame on a sacrifice bunt attempt in the bottom of the third. He exited the game, turning things over to the bullpen as the Brewers fell to the Rockies 7-5.
Suter, 27, made his big league debut with Milwaukee last season, appearing in 14 games and going 2-2 with a 3.32 ERA. He appeared in eight games for the Brewers this spring, going 1-0 with a WHIP of 1.33 and an ERA of 4.00 before being optioned to the minors on March 26th.
Tommy Milone, who had been shifted to the bullpen, will move back into the Brewers starting rotation, taking Guerra’s spot for the time being, with Suter taking over Milone’s role as the lone left-hander in Milwaukee’s bullpen.
