Catalanotto called up
The Brewers purchased veteran outfielder Frank Catalanotto’s contract from Double-A Huntsville on Monday morning and will have him in uniform for their Memorial Day series opener against the Cardinals.
To make room, left-hander R.J. Swindle was optioned back to Nashville for the second time this season. Swindle had been promoted to help handle the Twins’ stable of left-handed hitters during the Brewers’ Interleague Series in Minnesota.
Catalanotto, signed to a Minor League deal earlier this month, went 3-for-12 with a pair of doubles in three games at Huntsville. He is a left-handed hitter.
