Brewers Demote Reliever Marinez, Bring Up Suter

Antigo, WI, United States /

(San Diego, CA) ¬†— ¬†Brewers’ reliever Jhan Marinez has been designated for assignment after running into control problems. The right hander has been giving up more than two walks and hits for every inning pitched, and he’s 0-2 this year with a five-point-four-oh E-R-A while surrendering eleven total walks — tied with Carlos Torres for the most by a Milwaukee reliever. Manager Craig Counsell says Marinez did well last season after the Brewers acquired him from Tampa Bay, but “his command went the other way on him.” Left hander Brent Suter has been called up from Triple “A” Colorado Springs to replace Marinez. On the injury front, first baseman Eric Thames sat out Monday night’s loss to the Padres with sore legs — third baseman Travis Shaw was out with a hand injury from Sunday — and shortstop Orlando Arcia was given a night off.
