Brewers activate Suppan, option Iribarren
The Brewers’ media notes say that the team optioned infielder Hernan Iribarren back to Triple-A Nashville today to make room for right-hander Jeff Suppan, who returns from the disabled list to start against the Reds tonight.
That means the Brewers will go into the series with 13 pitches. They will have to make another move on Thursday, when Dave Bush is scheduled to return from injury.
Iribarren came off the bench for all 12 of his Brewers appearances this season and went 3-for-13 at the plate.
UPDATE at 2:30 p.m. CT — Here’s tonight’s Brewers lineup:
Felipe Lopez 2B
Craig Counsell SS
Ryan Braun LF
Prince Fielder 1B
Casey McGehee 3B
Mike Cameron CF
Frank Catalanotto RF
Jason Kendall C
Jeff Suppan RHP
