The Milwaukee Brewers announced on Friday that they recalled LHP Ethan Small from Triple- A Nashville and optioned down RHP Tyson Miller.
Small this season, has an 0-2 record, with a 2.33 ERA, 28 strikeouts and 19.1 innings pitched for Triple-A Nashville.
Small made his major league debut on May 30, 2022, against the Chicago Cubs. Small pitched two innings, allowed two runs, walked four and struck out four.
His next start came against the Minnesota Twins on July 26, 2022, where he pitched three innings, allowed two earned runs, walked four and struck out three.
While Small hasn’t pitched a lot for the Brewers, this move shores up the depth in the starting rotation. Milwaukee’s starting rotation has been bitten by the injury bug with 3 of the 5 starters from opening day (Eric Lauer, Brandon Woodruff, Wade Miley currently on the injured list.
The team also signed RHP Julio Teheran to a major league and he made a spot start yesterday against the San Francisco Giants. Teheran had a solid Brewers debut; pitching 5 innings, allowing 1 earned run, walked four, and struck out five.
Brewers rotation depth has been challenged this season, but the addition of Small should help fortify this rotation until the Big 3 come back from injury.
