Following today's game, the Brewers made a few roster moves in advance of Friday's game in Cincinnati.  They optioned Sean Halton and Donovan Hand back down to Triple-A Nashville, reinstated Rob Wooten from the paternity list, and recalled Caleb Gindl from Nashville.

Donovan Hand was only with the Brewers for one game to cover for Rob Wooten while he was home for the birth of his first child.  Though he could have remained on the paternity list until Saturday, he will be back in uniform and ready to go on Friday.  Meanwhile, with both Carlos Gomez and Norichika Aoki dealing with injuries, the Brewers needed to improve their outfield depth.  They did this by recalling Caleb Gindl and optioning Sean Halton.  While Halton can play in the outfield, Gindl has more experience as an outfielder.  Halton appeared in five games during his brief stint and only started in two of them.  Meanwhile, Gindl has been hot in his week back in Nashville, on a six-game hitting streak (and 11 game minor league hitting streak dating back to July 7th), hitting 9-for-32 with a home run and 3 RBI.  It's also worth noting that today is the last day of the 10-day minimum that he had to remain in the minors after being optioned down following the game on August 11th.
