Weaver Staying? Turnbow Not Going Anywhere.

Tom Haudricout of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports Jeff Weaver has a 6.52 ERA in 29 innings in Triple-A Nashville and can ask for his release next Sunday if he doesn't see an opportunity with the Brewers as realistic.  Weaver had no spring training, so he's still in rough form.  Whether or not that form improves has yet to be determined.  The Brewers currently have two struggling starters in Dave Bush and Seth McClung who just replaced Carlos Villanueva in the rotation.

In that same piece, we find that Derrick Turnbow has "suffered a near-total command meltdown" in Nashville.  In 6 outings, he has pitched 4 1/3 innings, allowed five hits, seven earned runs, and a jaw-dropping 15 walks!  Still, there's no plans for his release. Writes Haudricourt,

"'As long as we're paying him what we're paying him, there's no sense in doing that,' [Brewers GM Doug] Melvin said. "It's not like he's taking somebody's job.'" 

Turnbow is owed $3.2MM.
