Nottingham was optioned to Triple-A San Antonio on Sunday. Nottingham joined the Brewers in mid-May when Manny Pina (hamstring) landed on the injured list, but he'll return to Triple-A with Pina now healthy. Nottingham did not receive a start during his brief major-league stint but went 2-for-5 off the bench with his first career home run and four RBI.
Nottingham went 2-for-3 with a home run and four RBI in Friday's 12-8 loss to Atlanta. He started the game on the bench, but after Milwaukee fell behind 12-0, Nottingham checked into the game for Yasmani Grandal and helped fuel a late rally with his first career homer in the majors, a two-run shot off Josh Tomlin in the eighth inning. Nottingham is expected to see limited action behind Grandal while Manny Pina (hamstring) is on the shelf, but this performance might encourage the Brewers to give the 24-year-old an extra start or two.
Nottingham was optioned to Triple-A San Antonio on Sunday. Nottingham figured to battle for backup catching reps in spring training, but the signing of Yasmani Grandal in January sent him on a likely path back to the minors. The 23-year-old saw brief action with the Brewers in 2018 (4-for-20 in nine games) and had a .281/.347/.528 slash line with 10 home runs over 50 games at Triple-A.
Nottingham was recalled from Triple-A Colorado Springs on Sunday. Nottingham gets the promotion as starting catcher Manny Pina heads to the disabled list with a left biceps strain. The 23-year-old had a brief stint with the Brewers back in April when he grabbed his first two major-league starts, and he is likely to split catching duties with veteran Erik Kratz with Pina on the disabled list through the All-Star break.
Nottingham (intercostal) was activated from the minor-league disabled list Tuesday, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports. Nottingham is back in action with Triple-A Colorado Springs after missing the past three weeks with an intercostal strain. The backstop will look to pick up where he left off prior to landing on the shelf, as he was hitting an impressive .354/.427/.658 with five homers through 22 games for the SkySox.
