Morning roster moves: Donovan Hand selected from Nashville, Mark Rogers to 60-day DL

The Brewers selected Donovan Hand's contract from Nashville to replace Jim Henderson on the roster. Mark Rogers was transferred to the 60-day DL to clear a space on the 40-man roster.


The Brewers completed the second half of their move resulting from Jim Henderson going on the DL this morning. As reported by Mike Vassalo:

The news on Donovan Hand broke last night, as Adam McCalvy noticed on Twitter reports that Hand was on his way to Milwaukee. Hand was on the short list for a bullpen spot in spring training, but ended up losing out on the spot to Alfredo Figaro. He has posted a 3.18 ERA in 28.1 IP in Nashville with a 32:9 K/BB ratio. (In other news, morinek0 is very happy about this roster move.)

Since Hand was not on the 40-man roster, the Brewers made room for him by moving Mark Rogers to the 60-day DL. Adam McCalvy notes that because of his time on the DL so far, this only means that Rogers will be required to spend five more days on the DL. However, he is still not ready to return to action yet.

Finally, one more note for this morning. Andrew Gruman of notes that Kyle Lohse's spot for Thursday is now listed as TBA by the Brewers. It's unclear what this means at this point, but if Lohse had to miss another start, the Brewers would be scrambling to find starters. Currently, both Tuesday and Thursday's games are listed as TBA. Alfredo Figaro had been scheduled to start Tuesday, but after pitching in relief last night, those plans may have changed.
