(Milwaukee, WI) — Reliever Michael Blazek has cleared waivers, which means he’ll stay with the Milwaukee organization with an outright assignment to Triple “A” Colorado Springs. The 28-year-old Blazek was designated for assignment last week to create a roster spot for utility player Nick Franklin, whom the Brewers claimed off waivers from the Tampa Bay Rays. Blazek, a right hander, could have been claimed by another Major League team but was not. He had a solid two-point-four-three E-R-A in 2015, when he pitched 55 and two thirds innings of relief. Last year, Blazek’s performance slipped — when his E-R-A jumped to five-point-six-six in 41 and one third frames.
