    Brewers option Hiram Burgos to Triple-A Nashville

    The Brewers have activated pitcher Hiram Burgos from the disabled list and optioned him to Triple-A Nashville, MLB.com reports. Burgos has been out with a shoulder injury since May 21. He was sharp in two rehab appearances -- six scoreless innings -- but the Brewers have given his rotation spot to prospect Johnny Hellweg for now. Between Hellweg's youth, the Brewers' injury issues in the rotation, and the possibility they deal a starting pitcher before the trade deadline, there's a good chance Burgos will find himself back in Milwaukee this season.

    Hiram Burgos makes second rehab start

    Brewers starting pitcher Hiram Burgos (shoulder) made his second rehab start Tuesday night for Class A Brevard County. Burgos, who is working his way back from right shoulder impingement, pitched scoreless innings before surrendering two runs on four hits in the fourth for his only damage of the night. He yielded two runs on five hits while striking out four in four innings. He is scheduled to make one more rehab assignment before manager Ron Roenicke decides to bring him back to the majors or option him down to Triple-A."It's certainly simpler," Roenicke said. "If we bring somebody up, we've got to make a move, we've got to send somebody out. That's what we're trying to avoid doing."
