Cruz, Kintzler coming to Milwaukee

The Brewers will recall infielder Luis Cruz from Triple-A Nashville and will purchase right-hander Brandon Kintzler’s contract from Nashville in time for Tuesday’s game against the Cardinals, the club announced Monday evening. 

Cruz was already on the 40-man roster and is coming off a solid year in Triple-A, where he batted .281 with 10 home runs and 68 RBIs. The Brewers claimed him off waivers from the Pirates last December. 
Kintzler is an intriguing 26-year-old who was plucked out of the independent leagues last summer and posted a 1.47 ERA in 42 relief outings this season between Double-A Huntsville and Nashville. He’s ticketed for the Arizona Fall League after his stint with the Brewers. 
With Kintzler’s addition, the Brewers have 39 players on the 40-man roster.
