Rogers placed on paternity list, Bianchi recalled

DENVER -- The Brewers placed right-hander Mark Rogers on the paternity list Monday while awaiting word on a new addition to his family.

Rogers left the team Sunday to join his wife, Kerrie, who was expecting the birth of the couple's first child in Arizona. Rogers remains scheduled to make his next start for the Brewers on Wednesday against the Rockies.

"I'm comfortable he can handle it," manager Ron Roenicke said. "If everything goes well, then I'm sure he'll be fine, and if not, we'll have to change what we've got planned."

The Brewers recalled infielder Jeff Bianchi from Triple-A Nashville to take Rogers' spot on the active roster. Bianchi was 0-for-12 in a stint with the Brewers after the All-Star break but is batting .301 in 67 games at Nashville.

Assuming there are no complications for Rogers, Bianchi is expected to return to the Sounds on Wednesday.
