Mitch Stetter to Triple-A Nashville

April 16, 2010

The Brewers have posted this news story online today:

CHICAGO — The Brewers made one tough call when they optioned left-handed relief specialist Mitch Stetter to Triple-A Nashville on Thursday. They’ll face another when Stetter actually reports, likely on Saturday.

Stetter first traveled back to Milwaukee to gather his belongings and planned to drive to Nashville. When he arrives, he will join a pitching staff that through Wednesday was tied for the Pacific Coast League lead with a 2.14 ERA. Sounds starters combined for a 2.89 ERA in the team’s first seven games, and the relievers owned a minuscule 0.47 ERA (one earned run in 19 1/3 innings).

Brewers general manager Doug Melvin said the team had yet to decide on a move to free a spot for Stetter. There are already two lefty relievers there in promising prospect Zach Braddock and former big leaguer A.J. Murray.
