CHICAGO (AP) — The Milwaukee Brewers have decided to insert Wade Miley into their rotation and move Brent Suter to the bullpen.
Miley will make his first start with the team on Wednesday in Cincinnati. The 31-year-old left-hander struck out 11 in a start for Double-A Biloxi on Friday, and the Brewers had to make a decision by Sunday whether to add him to the team or allow him to become a free agent.
Miley went 8-15 with a 5.61 ERA in 32 starts with Baltimore last year. He agreed to a minor league deal with the Brewers in February, then was sidelined by a groin injury late in spring training.
The Brewers will have to clear a spot on their 25- and 40-man rosters to make room for Miley ahead of Wednesday's start.
Suter is 1-2 with a 5.34 ERA in six starts this year.
