MILWAUKEE -- Needing to clear room on the 25-man roster for Saturday's starter, Mike Fiers, the Brewers optioned right-handed reliever Rob Wooten to Triple-A Nashville following Friday's game against the Dodgers.
This was Wooten's third stint in the Majors this season as he's shuttled between Milwaukee and Nashville. This one lasted less than a week, as he came up on Aug. 5 to take the roster spot of Matt Garza, who had just been placed on the disabled list.
Wooten has a 4.59 ERA in 39 Major League appearances this season. He made two appearances during the current homestand and was charged with one run in Friday's 9-3 win over the Dodgers.
