Brewers call up Dillard

23 05 2008

The Milwaukee Brewers made the call for Tim Dillard from Triple-A Nashville today.  The sinkerballer has been extremely productive in Nashville, posting a 2.01 ERA with a 19:9 K:BB ratio.  I thought he deserved a call up over Zach Jackson anyway.

The team has not announced the corresponding move yet, but all signs point to Eric Gagne being put on the DL.  In fact, his “rotator cuff tendinitis” is much more serious than the team is letting on, so I would not be surprised if Gagne is out for longer than another week or so.  While the team has not specified anything yet, it only makes sense that Gagne’s going on the DL is the corresponding move.

Then again, Zach Jackson could be sent back down to the minors.  That’s just me reaching for something else that could happen.  Gagne’s getting put on the DL, don’t worry Zach.
