Club will wait to make September callups
CHICAGO -- With perhaps one pitching exception, the Brewers plan to wait until after Triple-A Nashville's season finale on Labor Day to make their September callups.

The exception would probably be a bullpen arm, manager Ron Roenicke said. Discussions among Roenicke, general manager Doug Melvin and assistant GM Gord Ash began before the Brewers left for this road trip and will continue this week in Chicago, where Melvin and Ash joined the traveling party on Monday.

The aim of callups will be different in Roencike's second season. They were very limited last year, with the Brewers running away with the National League Central.

"Last year was strictly to help us win," Roenicke said. "We didn't want to have a lot of guys up there, just because we liked the atmosphere and how it was going. This year, some of it may be to reward somebody, some of it may be to see a guy, to see if he's in the plans for next year, and with the pitching, we'll need a couple of starters."

The starters would join the rotation later in September if incumbents like Mark Rogers, Mike Fiers or Marco Estrada reach innings limits.
