The Brewers reliever has a minor trapezius strain.

UPDATE: After tonight's win over the Pirates, the Brewers did place Kintzler on the 15-day DL.  To fill his spot, Rob  Wooten has been recalled from Nashville.  According to Brewer Nation, the official injury is a mild rotator cuff strain.  Original story is below.

As tonight's game against the Pirates approaches,  the Brewers are considering making a DL move due to a minor injury.  Tom Haudricourt reports that reliever Brandon Kintzler has a minor trapezius strain, and will likely be placed on the 15-day DL.  As of right now, the move is not official, but indications are that the move will happen.

As good as the bullpen has been, the depth is a bit thin right now.  The Brewers have been essentially working with a six-man bullpen since they do not want to pitch Wei-Chung Wang until the "right" situation comes up.  Any injury in the bullpen will stretch the depth even further, and anything longer than a few days will need someone to be called up for extra depth.

Check out Brew Crew Ball for any updates to the situation.  We will provide updates if/when Kintzler goes on the DL, as well as who they decide to call up from Nashville.
