Brewes Make Some Moves

From John Sahly at MLB.com:

After Friday night's 10-4 loss to the Nationals, the Brewers made a series of roster moves.

Left-handed pitcher Dana Eveland was optioned to Nashville following his unimpressive performance. He lasted four-plus innings on Friday and in his five starts struggled to keep the Brewers in ballgames.

Joining him in Nashville is right-handed reliever Chris Mabeus, who was assigned outright to Nashville. He is scheduled to be in uniform for Nashville for Saturday night's game vs. Iowa. In his one appearance for the Brewers this season, Mabeus pitched 1 2/3 innings and surrendered four runs on May 29 against Pittsburgh.

Right-hander Allan Simpson and left-hander Zach Jackson were added from Nashville to the Major League roster. Jackson was 2-2 with a 3.00 ERA in 57 innings pitched. Simpson was 1-3 with a 2.67 ERA in 27 innings pitched. The Brewers have not officially announced a starter for Eveland's spot in the rotation on Wednesday against San Diego.

Right-hander Rick Helling, who has been on the 15-day disabled list since April 11, was moved to the 60-day disabled list to open a roster spot. He is still on track to come back to the Brewers this month as scheduled.
