The Brewers continued to tinker with their big league bullpen on Monday, designating Tommy Milone for assignment and selecting the contract of Rob Scahill from Colorado Springs to fill his roster spot.
Milone, 30, signed with the Brewers in the offseason and appeared in six games, starting three of them in place of the injured Junior Guerra before being bumped to the bullpen upon Matt Garza’s return. Milone allowed 15 runs in 21 innings of work with a WHIP of 1.48. Opposing batters hit .319 against him, though he did have a record of 1-0 and converted his only save chance.
Scahill, 30, put together a strong spring but was one of the last players cut before the season started. He appeared in nine games for Triple-A Colorado Springs, going 3-for-3 in save opportunities while allowing just one run in eight and two-thirds innings.
