The Brewers announced another series of roster moves as they continue to shuffle their big league bullpen, optioning Brent Suter back to Triple-A Colorado Springs and selecting the contract of David Goforth from the Sky Sox. To make room for Goforth on Milwaukee’s 40-man roster, Damien Magnifico was designated for assignment.
Goforth, 28, spent parts of each of the last two seasons with the Brewers, appearing in 30 games, but was outrighted off the 40-man roster in December. He attended spring training with the Brewers as a non-roster invitee and opened the season in Triple-A, where he made one relief appearance, tossing two scoreless innings.
Suter, 27, was called up to join the Brewers bullpen following the opening day injury to Junior Guerra, and made three relief appearances, spanning 3.1 innings. He was unscored upon in his first two outings before getting roughed up for four runs in an inning of work on Saturday night against the Cubs.
Magnifico, a hard-throwing right-hander who made his big league debut with the Brewers last season, has been pitching at Colorado Springs, and has battled control issues throughout his career, but with a fastball that routinely sits in the high-90’s, there’s a very good chance that another team could claim him in the coming days.
