The 40 man roster of the Milwaukee Brewers has seen a fair amount of turnover around the fringes this winter, and earlier today the club learned the fate of two more players that were exposed to DFA limbo. The Brewers themselves announced via Twitter that Rob Scahill has cleared waivers and been sent outright to AAA, and he will report to spring training as a non-roster invitee. Our neighbors to the west in Minnesota also announced on Twitter that they had claimed Ehire Adrianza off waivers from the Brewers, and in turn they designated lefty Pat Light for assignment.
Scahill, 29, was designated for assignment by Milwaukee on January 31st when the club initially claimed Adrianza. He originally came to the Brewers on waivers from Pittsburgh last July and appeared in 16 games for Milwaukee, posting a 2.45 ERA (3.15 FIP) in 18.1 innings with 14 strikeouts and three walks. In parts of five seasons with Colorado, Pittsburgh, and Milwaukee, the righty owns a 3.68 ERA and 86:46 K/BB ratio in 122.1 innings (100 appearances). He’ll be among a large crowd of arms (21 pitchers on the 40 man, now 12 non-roster invitees) in camp this spring competing for a spot in the bullpen.
As alluded to above, the Brewers claimed Ehire Adrianza on waivers from the Giants on January 31st, but the 27 year old lasted just two days on the 40 man roster before he lost his spot to Jesus Aguilar. The switch-hitting infielder has appeared in parts of four seasons in the majors and owns a .220/.292/.313 with 3 home runs in 331 plate appearances. He’ll now look to compete for a spot on the Twins’ roster in spring training.
