You can make up anything to state the reason for the dl stint. I’m a personal fan of “arm fatigue.”

You hate to have to burn them as much as we have so far but we do have some depth.

Cutch was not the only upset about that move.

I want Jordy Mercer called up to take playing time away from me.

The Brewers just seem to me to have too many Pirate killers on the roster. We got a chance to still win a couple in St.Louis, hope we do.

As far as Walker, he has a cut on his knuckle no damage to anything important, but they probably will hold him out for a week or two, I hate to say this, but back in the day, he would have been playing today. The Pirates have a lot of options for this situation, we should find out soon what they are going to do.
One thing is for sure they have about 3 guys in the bullpen that can’t pitch for a couple of days and no starters going more than 6 innings, might want to release Sanchez and bring up 3 pitchers from Indy.

You’ve got to be either kidding or related to one of the Clint’s. Barmas should have been released last year. He needs to get on with his life’s work as a little league hitting coach
