Rogers optioned, Gindl returned to Minors

The Brewers optioned right-hander Mark Rogers to Triple-A Nashville on Tuesday morning and returned outfielder Caleb Gindl to the Minor League complex, leaving 45 players in Major League camp. 

Rogers made his spring debut on Monday against the Giants and was expecting to vie for the spot vacated by Zack Greinke’s rib-cage injury. He still could fill that role, just not the first time it comes up on April 6. 
“We didn’t feel he could be ready in time,” assistant general manager Gord Ash said. “He needs to be ready the next time.”
That next time would be April 16.
For that first start, Roenicke again mentioned another pitching prospect, Wily Peralta, or nonroster pitchers Eulogio De La Cruz or Marco Estrada.
Gindl will miss the next 3-5 days with a strained upper right calf, an injury he suffered Sunday against the Royals.
