A’s claim Stinson off waivers
Needing space on a full 40-man roster, the Brewers waived right-hander Josh Stinson this week and lost him Friday to the A’s.
The Brewers will add one or perhaps two players to the 40-man roster after Saturday’s exhibition finale at Miller Park. One will be a pitcher — Donovan Hand or Alfredo Figaro — and another could be catcher/first baseman Blake Lalli, if they choose Lalli over outfielder Khris Davis for the final spot on the bench.
Stinson, who is only 25 years old, allowed only one run in 9 1/3 innings for the Brewers last September after going 11-9 with a 3.16 ERA in 29 games at Double-A Huntsville. He was ticketed for the Triple-A Nashville rotation to start this year after a very good Cactus League (1.50 ERA in 10 appearances).
