Junior Guerra put on bereavement list, Donnie Hart optioned for Adrian Houser, Jake Petricka

The Brewers will be without one of their best relievers for the series in St. Louis

MLB: Milwaukee Brewers at Los Angeles Dodgers Robert Hanashiro-USA TODAY Sports

When we learned Jake Petricka was being recalled again despite not being down in the minors for the requisite 10 days, we knew another pitcher would have to miss some time. Now we know who, and it’s a reminder that these guys are human beings with families, and not just entertainers or baseball-playing machines.

The team announced ahead of tonight’s game that Junior Guerra will be headed to the bereavement list, explaining the Petricka move, and Donnie Hart would be optioned to make room for Adrian Houser, who will make his first MLB start tonight.

The info on why Guerra is being given some time off isn’t being shared publicly at this time, but Kyle did have this to share:

Per MLB rules, a player on the bereavement list has to be out a minimum of three games and a maximum of seven.

Our thoughts are with Junior and his family at this time.
