  • Brewers Shuffle Relievers Over the Weekend

    TL Schwerz

    The Milwaukee Brewers have dealt with more than their fair share of pitching injuries this season, and over the weekend the bullpen needed a reshuffling. Justin Topa was activated from the 60-day injured list and optioned to Triple-A Nashville. Peter Strzelecki was recalled and he took Trevor Gott’s spot on the active roster.

    Trevor Gott is pitching in the majors this season after not appearing during 2021. He owns a 4.03 ERA across 38 innings pitched. Gott has been burned by the home run but has struck out over a batter per inning. He was placed on the 15-day injured list, retroactive to August 11, with a right forearm strain.

    Needing to replace him in the bullpen, Milwaukee recalled Peter Strzelecki. The rookie has made eight appearances this season spanning 11 1/3 innings. He owns a solid 3.18 ERA and has yet to allow a home run. The 15/4 K/BB continues to get him more opportunities as well. Each time he’s been called upon by the big league club, he’s put up solid efforts.

    Justin Topa had been rehabbing with Triple-A Nashville, having yet to pitch in the majors this season. Now back to health, Milwaukee optioned him and will allow Topa to work as relief depth until they need his services at the highest level.
