Catching up after some trouble at the baggage claim…
It promises to be a very interesting Sunday afternoon for the Brewers, who will try to avoid a three-game Twins sweep behind Marco Estrada, who appeared in relief on Saturday afternoon. In case you missed it, here’s my story from yesterday detailing the postgame moves.

The team optioned left-hander Mitch Stetter to Triple-A Nashville after Saturday’s long loss to the Twins and recalled another left-hander, Zach Braddock, to serve as a fresh arm in the bullpen. Marco Estrada, who threw 21 pitches in relief today, will start Sunday’s series finale. Manager Ken Macha said that Manny Parra, who was originally scheduled to start Sunday, said he could also work a couple of innings of needed after he threw 29 pitches in 1 2/3 innings on Saturday in taking the loss.
Some notes from Ken Macha’s morning meeting with reporters:
The Brewers announced Friday that right-hander Tim Dillard had cleared waivers and been sent outright to Triple-A Nashville. The team removed him from the 40-man roster on Wednesday to clear a spot for waiver pick-up Marco Estrada.
Based on a strong recommendation from their new Triple-A pitching coach, the Brewers on Wednesday claimed right-hander Marco Estrada off waivers from the Washington Nationals.
