Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel suggests on Twitter that the veteran hurlers will accept their assignments to Triple-A, though that is not yet official. Both would have the ability to decline and become free agents if they prefer; with more than five years of MLB service they’d each also be able to keep any guaranteed money.
Wilson is playing on a $750K base salary under the minors deal he inked with the Milwaukee organization. It’s not known whether he signed an advance consent clause upon being added to the MLB roster. Petricka agreed to a split contract when he inked with the Brewers.
Neither pitcher was at his best in the early going for the Brewers. Wilson was clobbered for a dozen earned runs in 11 1/3 frames. Petricka allowed only three earned in eight innings but managed an ugly 3:6 K/BB ratio.
