Aaron Ashby makes his first start in a month tonight. The Brewers activated him from the injured list earlier today and optioned reliever Justin Topa to Triple-A Nashville.

Because Ashby did not embark on a rehab assignment, he figures to be on a limited pitch count tonight. That will make tonight’s game plan more closely resemble a bullpen game than a traditional start. Ashby got up to 30 pitches in bullpen sessions before his activation.
