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 will head straight to Milwaukee after returning from a stint on the minor-league disabled list with a chip fracture in his right wrist Friday. He'll likely be stuck behind Manny Pina and Erik Kratz down the stretch, leaving him unlikely to have much fantasy value.
Nottingham (wrist) was reinstated from the minor-league disabled list on Friday.
Nottingham had been out since the start of August after suffering a chip fracture in his right wrist. As a member of the Brewers' 40-man roster, he's a candidate to be up as the third catcher when rosters expand Saturday.
Nottingham (wrist) had been recovering in Arizona but is slated to report to Triple-A Colorado Springs later in the week to work through a hitting program, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.
Nottingham was placed on the minor-league disabled list Aug. 1 after suffering a chip fracture in his right wrist. He's about a week away from competing in game action, so there's certainly a chance he could be called up sometime in September, per McCalvy.
Nottingham was moved to the 7-day disabled list Wednesday.
Nottingham has a chip fracture in his right wrist after being struck with a foul tip in Sunday's minor-league game. He'll be in a cast for the next three weeks and then reevaluated, per Adam McCalvy of MLB.com. Nottingham was optioned to Triple-A Colorado Springs on July 21 after going 4-for-20 with one extra-base hit and and four walks through seven games with the big club.
