Hear Me At 6 On The Sports Den (Wausau)

I'll be making my weekly appearance on The Sports Den with Downtown Ollie Burrows on SportsFan 100.5 in Wausau at 6 pm tonight.

McClung Released

via McCalvy. Making room for Thornburg. Not that he was ever going to see the majors again, but it was fun keeping our jokes alive.

Thornburg optioned back to AAA

RP Tyler Thornburg has been optioned to AAA Nashville, per Mike Vassallo. Corresponding move not announced yet.

George Kottaras traded to Athletics, says Jon Heyman.

Fox's John Morosi with the scoop. EDIT:Official announcement may be pushed to tomorrow; the Athletics have another move pending. "#Brewers trade of C George Kottaras to Oakland might not be announced tonight. Apparently waiting for A's to do another move first.— Tom (@Haudricourt) July 28, 2012"

Brewers DFA Kottaras, Option Bianchi to AAA

Per TH. Edit: One of the corresponding moves is Lucroy's activation from the DL. The other is Jim Henderson's callup from AAA. - Cheeseandcorn

Jim Henderson, Reliever from Nashville, Called Up

Via Twitter, Jsonline Writer Tom Haudricourt found out Jim Henderson is on his way to Milwaukee. The reliever has a boatload of saves for Nashville. No corresponding roster move has been announced yet. Edit by JP: TH also posted the following stats on Jim Henderson: 1.69 ERA, 15 SV. The Brewers have a 40-man spot available so they do not need to clear one for him. A corresponding move from the 25-man roster will be needed. Also cleaned up the title a little.

Brewers Awarded Competitive Balance Draft Pick

They'll get the fifth pick in "Comp. Round B," which is between the second and third rounds.
