Matt Garza (R) Headshot

Garza was placed on the 10-day disabled list Wednesday with a right lower leg strain.

No word has come forth as to when the injury was sustained, although apparently it was enough to warrant a trip to the DL. The severity of the ailment is also unknown, so a timetable for his return is unclear at this point. Garza was originally scheduled to start Thursday's series finale in Washington, so the Brewers will need to find a replacement for that. Brent Suter and Wily Peralta seem like possible options for the Brewers to deploy for a spot start.

George Springer (R) Headshot

Springer (quadriceps) is out of the lineup Wednesday against Philadelphia, Jake Kaplan of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Springer will be available off the bench for Wednesday's series finale, but manager A.J. Hinch decided to give the outfielder another day off after he exited Monday's contest with left quad discomfort. It was expected that Springer would be held out of the lineup Wednesday, especially with the team receiving a scheduled off day Thursday. In his place, Derek Fisher draws the start in center field while batting second against the Phillies.

Brooks Pounders (R) Headshot

The Angels recalled Pounders from Triple-A Salt Lake on Wednesday, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.

It's the fifth promotion of the season for Pounders, who didn't make much of an impression over his previous nine appearances with the big club, accruing a 6.52 ERA in 9.2 innings. The Angels' main incentive for calling Pounders up was to get a fresh arm in the bullpen after the team needed six relievers to cover 7.2 innings in Tuesday's loss to the Indians. Pounders could be asked to cover multiple frames Wednesday if the Angels' starter, Ricky Nolasco, fails to work deep into the contest.

Lewis Brinson (R) Headshot

Brinson was recalled from Triple-A Colorado Springs on Wednesday.

The top prospect will return to the majors to add outfield depth. With the Brewers in line to face left-handers Wednesday and Friday, Brinson seems to be in line for a good amount of playing time while he's up. For Wednesday's contest, he'll slot into the order in the seven-hole, patrolling center field. Matt Garza (lower leg) was placed on the disabled list to make room on the roster for him.
4:22 pm (EST)
José Álvarez (L) Headshot

Alvarez was optioned to Triple-A Salt Lake on Wednesday, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.

The Angels were in need of some fresh arm out of the bullpen after six different relievers were needed to cover 7.2 innings in Tuesday's series opener with the Indians, so Alvarez will be shipped back to Triple-A while Brooks Pounders moves up to the big leagues. Alvarez made four appearances during his latest stint with the Angels, tossing four scoreless innings and striking out five batters.

Alex Bregman (R) Headshot

Bregman (hamstring) is not in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Phillies, Jake Kaplan of the Houston Chronicle reports.

It was expected that manager A.J. Hinch would give the third baseman a day off after leaving Tuesday's contest with right hamstring tightness, and this will provide Bregman with more time to rest, especially with Thursday's scheduled off day looming. In his place, Yulieski Gurriel draws the start at third for the series finale. Bregman should be considered day-to-day for Friday's game, but he will likely return to the lineup for the opener against Detroit.
