Brewers recall Kevin Herget, option Aaron Ashby

The Milwaukee Brewers added to their bullpen depth today by recalling right-handed pitcher Kevin Herget and optioning yesterday’s starter, Aaron Ashby, back to Triple-A Nashville. The team is perhaps anticipating that today’s starter Joe Ross (who pitched 3 23 innings last week against the Mets) and tomorrow’s presumed starter Wade Miley (who threw three innings in a start with Nashville last week) will not be able to go especially deep, they are thus opting for a usable bullpen arm in place of Ashby, who will not be available for a few days.

Herget, who turned 33 last week, appeared briefly in the majors in each of the last two seasons, in 2022 with Tampa and in 2023 with Cincinnati.
