Brewers trade Asencio, option Gindl to Minors


PHOENIX -- A Minor Leaguer was traded and an outfield prospect sent down to the Minors amid a flurry of Brewers roster moves late Monday.

• Minor League right-hander Jairo Asencio was traded to the Orioles in exchange for a player to be named. Originally a non-roster invitee to big league camp who was delayed by visa troubles in the Dominican Republic, Asencio made his long-awaited debut Sunday against the Padres and allowed two runs on a hit and two walks without recording an out.

• Left-hander Miguel De Los Santos was placed on the restricted list and no longer counts against the Brewers' 40-man roster limit. He remains in the Dominican Republic awaiting his work visa.

The De Los Santos move left the roster at 39 players even after the Brewers added right-hander Kyle Lohse, who passed a physical and signed his three-year contract.

• Outfielder Caleb Gindl was optioned to Triple-A Nashville but will accompany the Major League team to Milwaukee for its exhibition games against the White Sox on Friday and Saturday. He will then report to Nashville on Sunday.
