The Brewers received permission from Major League Baseball during Wednesday’s win over the Marlins to place Mark DiFelice on the bereavement list, and they will promote right-hander Chris Smith from Triple-A Nashville in time for Thursday’s series finale in Florida.
Smith, 28, was 2-0 with a 1.38 ERA and 12 saves for Triple-A Nashville. He made his big league debut last season with the Red Sox, going 1-0 with a 7.85 ERA in 12 games.
The move will be officially made on Thursday. The Brewers will have to transfer one of their injured players — Rickie Weeks and David Riske are candidates — to the 60-day disabled list to clear a 40-man roster spot for Smith.
