Brewers' Aaron Wilkerson: Outrighted to San Antonio
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilkerson was sent outright to Triple-A San Antonio on Tuesday.

Wilkerson was booted off the 40-man roster by Milwaukee on Sunday, and after failing to garner interest while on waivers, he'll report to Triple-A. He sports a 3.42 ERA and 1.20 WHIP with an 81:29 K:BB over 76.1 innings this season with the Missions.

Brewers' Aaron Wilkerson: Designated for assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilkerson was designated for assignment by the Brewers on Sunday.

Wilkerson bounced between Triple-A and the majors for much of the season. However, he failed to work effectively for the big-league club, racking up a 7.31 ERA and 2.13 WHIP across 16 innings. His designation creates a spot on the 40-man roster for Jimmy Nelson (elbow) or Brent Suter (elbow).

Brewers' Aaron Wilkerson: Optioned to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilkerson was optioned to Triple-A San Antonio on Monday.

Wilkerson gave up five runs in 4.1 innings as a mop-up man Sunday against the Nationals. He will rejoin the big-league bullpen when rosters expand in September.

Brewers' Aaron Wilkerson: Back in majors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilkerson was recalled from Triple-A San Antonio prior to Sunday's game against the Nationals.

The Brewers used 10 pitchers in Saturday's 14-inning win against the Nationals, so they needed reinforcements. Wilkerson should work in low-to-mid-leverage situations.

Brewers' Aaron Wilkerson: Shuttled back to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilkerson was optioned to Triple-A San Antonio on Monday, Robert Murray of The Athletic reports.

Wilkerson made a pair of appearances during his most recent stint with the Brewers, which lasted just two days, allowing one hit across 1.1 scoreless innings of relief. He'll head back to the minors in exchange for a fresh bullpen arm in Devin Williams.

Brewers' Aaron Wilkerson: Promoted to majors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilkerson was recalled from Triple-A San Antonio on Saturday.

He has been excellent as a starting pitcher at Triple-A this season (3.06 ERA in 14 starts) but has struggled as a big-league reliever (6.97 ERA in 10.1 innings). Jay Jackson was optioned in a corresponding move.

Brewers' Aaron Wilkerson: Bound for Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Brewers optioned Wilkerson to Triple-A San Antonio on Thursday.

Wilkerson was with Milwaukee for just under two weeks, appearing in only two games during his latest stint with the big club and ceding two runs on three hits and four walks over three frames. He'll be replaced on the active roster by fellow reliever Deolis Guerra, whose contract was selected from Triple-A.

Brewers' Aaron Wilkerson: Called up by Brewers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilkerson was recalled from Triple-A San Antonio on Saturday.

Wilkerson has thrown 7.1 innings of relief for the Brewers this season, allowing six runs. He has a much stronger 1.79 ERA in 50.1 frames for San Antonio. Corbin Burnes was optioned in a corresponding move.

Brewers' Aaron Wilkerson: Activated, optioned to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilkerson (foot) was activated from the 10-day injured list Friday and optioned to Triple-A San Antonio, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Wilkerson found himself on the injured list after suffering a bruised left foot at the end of April, but he's been cleared to return after missing close to the minimum. He's struggled at the major-league level in 2019 over three appearances (7.36 ERA with eight strikeouts over 7.1 innings), so he'll head to Triple-A for the time being.

Brewers' Aaron Wilkerson: Rehab start coming Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilkerson (foot) will make a rehab start with Triple-A San Antonio on Tuesday, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.

Wilkerson was placed on the 10-day injured list last week with a bruised left foot but doesn't look to be in line for an extended absence. Assuming his foot responds well to Tuesday's outing, he shouldn't require any additional appearances in the minors before getting the green light to return from the IL.

Brewers' Aaron Wilkerson: Lands on IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilkerson was placed on the 10-day injured list Monday due to a left foot contusion.

Wilkerson apparently suffered the injury during Sunday's loss to the Mets, and the issue is serious enough to warrant at least 10 days on the shelf. Donnie Hart was recalled from Triple-A San Antonio in a corresponding move and will take Wilkerson's spot on the roster and in the bullpen for the time being.

Brewers' Aaron Wilkerson: Effective in relief appearance
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilkerson allowed one earned run over four innings of relief in Wednesday's loss to the Cardinals. He also recorded his first big-league hit via a two-run home run.

Wilkerson got the job done after replacing an ineffective Corbin Burnes, eating up four frames out of the bullpen and posting a 3:0 K:BB while giving up five hits -- not to mention accounting for two of the three runs the Brewers scored on the day. Wilkerson is an option to step into the Brewers' rotation in place of an injured Freddy Peralta (shoulder), but he presumably won't be available for a few days after Wednesday's extended outing, so it's more likely the club will go in a different direction.

Brewers' Aaron Wilkerson: Promoted to big leagues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilkerson was recalled from Triple-A San Antonio ahead of Tuesday's game against the Cardinals.

Wilkerson struggled during his brief time with the Brewers in 2018, accruing a 10.00 ERA with 10 strikeouts over nine innings, so he'll search for a better result this time around. In a corresponding move, Jake Petricka was optioned to Low-A Wisconsin.

Brewers' Aaron Wilkerson: Sent to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilkerson was optioned to minor-league camp.

The 29-year-old righty is simply an organizational depth piece, and it would not be surprising if he were cast off the 40-man roster at some point in 2019.

Brewers' Aaron Wilkerson: Heads back to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilkerson was sent down to Triple-A Colorado Springs on Monday.

Wilkerson was up for just two days and did not make an appearance. He hasn't had much value for the Brewers this season, allowing 10 runs in nine innings.

August 11, 2018 08:21 PM
Brewers' Aaron Wilkerson: Rejoins major-league club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilkerson was recalled from Triple-A Colorado Springs on Saturday.

Wilkerson has allowed 10 runs over nine innings with the Brewers this season and should once again serve in a low-leverage role. Adrian Houser was sent down in a corresponding move.

July 15, 2018 10:08 AM
Brewers' Aaron Wilkerson: Heads back to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Brewers optioned Wilkerson to Triple-A Colorado Springs on Sunday.

Wilkerson served as the Brewers' 26th man in Saturday's doubleheader against the Pirates and had a disastrous relief appearance in the second game. He pitched the eighth inning of the 6-2 loss, surrendering three hits -- all solo home runs. Wilkerson should settle back into a starting role for Colorado Springs after being optioned.

Brewers' Aaron Wilkerson: Returns as 26th man
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilkerson was recalled to serve as the 26th man for Saturday's doubleheader against the Pirates.

The right-hander will provide some extra depth in the bullpen before likely heading right back down to Triple-A Colorado Springs. Wilkerson bounced back from a shaky 2018 debut with the big club to toss five innings of two-run ball against Atlanta last week.

July 8, 2018 02:16 PM
Brewers' Aaron Wilkerson: Returns to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilkerson was optioned to Triple-A Colorado Springs on Sunday.

Wilkerson was solid in Saturday's spot-start for the Brewers but will nonetheless return to Colorado Springs as the team makes a flurry of roster moves. The 29-year-old has a 2.08 ERA and 1.33 WHIP in seven starts with the Sky Sox in 2018.

Brewers' Aaron Wilkerson: Works five effective innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilkerson (0-1) allowed two earned runs on four hits and three walks while striking out five across five innings to take the loss Saturday against the Braves.

Wilkerson was effective in his spot-start duties, limiting the Braves to only one extra-base hit and retiring the last nine batters he faced. His velocity was far from elite -- his average fastball velocity was 88.9 -- but he mixed pitches well, throwing all four of his offerings at least 10 times. It remains to be seen how long he will remain in the rotation with Zach Davies (shoulder), Wade LeBlanc (oblique), and Brent Suter (forearm) all on undetermined timelines. However, Wilkerson acquitted himself well Saturday and made the case for at least one more turn in the rotation.
