With MLB announcing overnight that rosters would be cut down to 28 by 11 a.m. CDT today, the Brewers had to make a couple quick decisions on who they would send back to their alternate training site.
David Stearns elected to take one bat and one arm off the roster, sending Ryon Healy and J.P. Feyereisen to Appleton.

It ends up being a short stay on the active roster for Healy, who was added just a few days ago as one of the bats replacing Ryan Braun and Lorenzo Cain on the roster. He got 6 plate appearances in a pair of starts, being pinch-hit for after just 1 AB in his debut as a DH on Monday night and starting at first base last night. He went 1-for-6 with 2 strikeouts and no walks, picking up his hit on Tuesday night.
Feyereisen made his MLB debut on Opening Day against the Cubs, but the River Falls native hasn’t appeared in a game since. He picked up his first career strikeout against Kris Bryant, but followed that up with his first career home run allowed against Anthony Rizzo, who hit one out off of him despite falling to one knee on the swing. There’s a chance he’ll be back later if the team needs a spare arm, but at this point it looked like he wasn’t going to get regular work.
