The Hits Keep Coming: Loe and Ishikawa Outrighted, Loe Elects Free Agency

Hannah Foslien

Movember continues for the Crew, as reliever Kameron Loe declined an assignment to AAA Nashville and elected to become a free agent. Backup Travis Ishikawa was also outrighted to Nashville.

A day after Nyjer Morgan's tenure in Milwaukee came to an end, the Brewers jettisoned another arbitration-eligible player today, as right-handed reliever Kameron Loe was outrighted to AAA Nashville. Loe declined the assignment and has elected to become a free agent:

Loe wasn't the only Brewer to get his walking papers today, though, as backup first baseman (and occasional outfielder) Travis Ishikawa was also outrighted to Nashville. We should learn in the next couple days whether Ishikawa declines his assignment, too.

Loe's Brewer career spanned three seasons; he appeared in 195 games, compiling a 3.67 ERA with 162 strikeouts, 51 walks, and three saves. This year was easily his worst as a member of the Crew: Loe limped to the finish line with a 4.61 ERA and a 1.43 WHIP in 70 appearances.

Ishikawa appeared in 94 games for the Brewers in 2012, making 27 starts. And he wasn't half-bad either: Ish put together a tidy .278/.340/.522 line in 102 plate appearances as a starter, and had a respectable .260/.315/.340 line as a pinch hitter.

Edit by JP: In addition to these moves, the Brewers also claimed reliever Arcenio Leon from the Astros (h/t Tom Haudricourt). At Double-A Corpus Christi, Leon had a 4.38 ERA in 63 2/3 IP in 2012 with 33 walks and 58 strikeouts. He does have a minor league option available.
