Corporan Takes Rivera's Place on Roster

Carlos Corporan started the season as the backup catcher at Nashville. A few weeks later, he's the backup catcher in Milwaukee. Corporan has been placed on the Brewers active roster, and his call-up occurred for two reasons. The first being that Mike Rivera needed to be placed on the 15-day DL, the second being that the Brewers wanted to keep Angel Salome in Nashville so that he could keep playing every day. 

Corporan isn't any slouch though, and he'll fulfill his role just fine. He's considered the best defensive catcher in the Brewers' organization, and has been hitting well enough down in Nashburg to get the call-up. Don't expect him to play too much though, as I think Kendall will go back to catching nearly every day, including for Dave Bush, which was previously Mike Rivera's role. Corporan may get a start or two in the next fifteen days, but that's about it.
