The Milwaukee Brewers will lose a part of their bullpen for a little while, as Angel Perdomo hits the injured list with a lower back strain. Alec Bettinger has been recalled from AAA-Nashville to replace him.

The big left hander appeared in 13 games so far this season covering 12.2 IP. His ERA has been less than stellar coming in at 7.11. Control and command are his achilles heel as he has an 8.53 BB/9. Those strikeout numbers are impressive, however. He is striking out 13.50 per 9.
Alec Bettinger has covered 9 IP for the Brewers so far this season. The antithesis of Perdomo, Bettinger has struck out 5.00 per 9. The outcome in ERA has been ever worse than Perdomo, 14.00.
