Brewers Add Reliever Jesus Sanchez To 40 Man Roster

The 25-year-old Venezuelan reliever posted a 1.63 ERA for Huntsville and Nashville this season.

A short time ago Mike Vassallo posted the following on Twitter:

Sanchez is a 25-year-old Venezuelan native who just wrapped up his fifth professional season. He appeared in 52 games between AA and AAA in 2012, posting a 1.63 ERA with eleven saves. He also struck out eight batters per nine innings while walking 2.8 and allowed just two home runs all season.

2012 was Sanchez's second season in the Brewers organization. They picked him up after the Phillies released him in 2010.

Sanchez was not eligible for minor league free agency but adding him to the roster protects him from this winter's Rule 5 draft, where a reliever coming off a sub-two ERA in the upper levels of the minors probably would have been a popular target.

The Brewers also cleared some space on the roster today by removing Livan Hernandez and Yorvit Torrealba. Both players refused outright assignments to the minors and are now free agents, but it's really just a paper transaction since they would've become free agents after the World Series anyway.
