Fielder Called Up

By TOM HAUDRICOURT From the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel:
Brewers general manager Doug Melvin confirmed this afternoon that Fielder, 21, would come up strictly to serve as the DH in three-game series at Tampa Bay and Toronto. Melvin said Fielder then would be returned to Class AAA Nashville.

"We figured the way we’re hitting, we’ll see if he can jump-start the offense a little bit," said Melvin. "We talked about this a couple of weeks ago.

"We’ve got some guys banged up right now, so we’re a little thin. And with the offense struggling, we’re looking for an offensive boost."
