CINCINNATI -- The Brewers optioned right-hander Corey Knebel and utility man Jason Rogers to Triple-A Colorado Springs on Friday and recalled right-handers Tyler Cravy and David Goforth.
"Just needing fresh arms," Brewers manager Craig Counsell said. "I think a product of us winning, [and] an extra-inning game last night, we've gotten I think 14 or 15 innings from the bullpen the last four days and we've had a lot of guys [who've pitched] three in a row, four out of five, five in a row. We just want to make sure that we can protect ourselves in case anything comes up."
