Brewers shake up roster, fire pitching coach

by Bryon Graff

(WAOW) - It's time for Alcides Escobar to prove his worth on a major league scale.  The Brewers send JJ Hardy to Nashville and designate Bill Hall for assignment. 

Escobar was batting .298 with 4 HR, 34 RBI and 42 stolen bases in 109 games with Triple-A Nashville.

The Brewers purchase the contract of Jason Bourgeois, who was batting .316 with 2 HR, 41 RBI and 36 stolen bases in 105 games with Nashville.

The Brewers also fire pitching coach Bill Castro and replace him Chris Bosio.  Bosio is credited with helping turnaround Manny Parra's season during his stint with the Nashville Sounds.
