Goforth was recalled from Triple-A Colorado Springs on Thursday. Goforth has been putting up solid numbers out of the Sky Sox bullpen, making him a clear candidate for promotion when Chris Capuana (elbow) was placed on the disabled list. Goforth will likely slot into a middle relief role and mainly pitch in lower-leverage situations, especially if he can't improve his 7.20 major league ERA he holds from his first stint with the parent club.
Goforth was optioned to Triple-A Colorado Springs on Sunday. Goforth was used as a reliever in four games during his stint with the Brewers, for a total of 5.0 innings pitched and an ERA of 7.20. He also recorded two strikeouts and gave up two walks. Goforth could be called up again later in the season, but his upside is limited to being a middle reliever.
Goforth was recalled from Triple-A Colorado Springs on Friday. The Brewers decided to send starter Taylor Jungmann to the minors to build up his confidence again, leaving a vacant spot on the major league roster. Goforth will fill that void after posting decent results in the minors (4.35 ERA and a save in 10.1 innings with Colorado Springs). He'll likely slot into a middle-relief role in the Milwaukee bullpen, although he could be sent back down to the minors when the Brewers need a fifth starter Tuesday.
Goforth was optioned to Triple-A Colorado Springs on Sunday, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. Goforth missed out on a bullpen spot with the Brewers after a poor spring in which he posted a 5.73 ERA over 11 innings. The right-hander did compile a 10:1 K:BB ratio over that same span, however, so it wasn't all bad. If he excels in the early going at Triple-A, he could be among the team's first call-ups of the season.
The Brewers have announced that they have placed right-hander Michael Blazek on the 15-day disabled list with a fractured right hand, retroactive to Aug. 13. They have promoted fellow reliever David Goforth from Triple-A Colorado Springs to take his place on the roster. The team gave no indication as to how Blazek sustained the injury. Blazek descended into his first slump of the season before going down. He allowed seven runs over his last 10 innings to raise his ERA from 1.58 to 2.43. Goforth has pitched in six games with Milwaukee this season and recorded a 4.15 ERA.
