The Brewers designated outfielder Adam Stern for assignment to make room for Kameron Loe, tweets MLB.com's Adam McCalvy. The 30-year-old only appeared in six games. Last year at Double and Triple A, Stern had a combined .285/.349/.377 line in 546 plate appearances.
Stern was chosen in the '05 Rule 5 draft by the Red Sox from the Braves, but injuries limited his playing time and he didn't fulfill his big league commitment until April of '06. The Sox attempted to send him to the Orioles for Javy Lopez in August of that year, but the Rays put in a claim and forced Boston to wait until after the season. The O's ultimately released Stern and the Brewers signed him in January of last year.
Estrada was optioned back to AAA too, because Jim Edmonds is back in.
I was really hoping Suppan would have been cut… Now who do we use for a replacement for out bench?
we need all the arms we can grab
