MILWAUKEE, WI (LEARFIELD_WSAU) Brewers' reliever Rob Wooten was recalled yesterday from Triple-"A" Nashville. He's replacing Brandon Kintzler, who was put on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right rotator cuff.
Wooten started the year with three saves at Nashville, retiring all nine batters he faced in his trio of appearances. Wooten, a right-hander, went 3-and-1 in 27 relief outings with Milwaukee last season.
He began his big league career by throwing 11 scoreless innings, and he ended the season with a three-point-nine-oh E-R-A. Wooten was the last Brewer to be cut at the end of Spring Training.
