Swindle Back Up as Burns is Sent Down

Well hi there, R.J. Swindle. You're looking pretty mysterious there amidst that black background. What's that your hiding behind that coy little face of yours? You have something you want to share with us?

Seriously, what a weird picture. Either way, Swindle is back with the big league club for the third time this season. He's struggled in his short time with the Brewers, although has been pitching very well in Nashville. The arrival of Swindle means the Brewers will once again have two left-handed specialists in the pen.

To make room for Swindle, the Brewers sent Mikey Burns back down to Nashville. Burns pitched well at times for Milwaukee, but was never anything more than a stopgap in the Brewers rotation. With the move, you would assume Tim Dillard takes his "spot" in the rotation, unless Dillard is destined for a long-relief role should the Brewers make a trade in the coming hours (rumors about Jarrod Washburn have been cooling off however).

One thing is for certain, this Brewers pitching staff looks like it's going to be in flux for quite awhile yet.
