More Brewers news pouring out from official sources on Wednesday after a transaction-filled Tuesday. ‘
MLB.com’s Adam McCalvy tweeted this afternoon that infielder Jeff Bianchi will be placed on the 15-day disabled list. Bianchi, 25, hit .235/.235/.235 (no, that isn’t a typo) over 17 spring training plate appearances. Infielder Donnie Murphy has asked to be released from the club, as well. His release comes a day after Milwaukee’s signing of Yuniesky Betancourt was made official. Murphy, 30, hit .239/.314/.457 over 24 spring training games with the Brewers.
McCalvy also reported via his Twitter page Wednesday that Kyle Lohse’s first start as a member of the rotation could come not in the club’s first series against the Rockies, but the second series against the Diamondbacks.
