The Brewers brought catcher Jonathan Lucroy back from the disabled list. To make room, they designated catcher George Kottaras for assignment.
Lucroy went on the disabled list in May with a broken hand. He was hurt when a suitcase fell on his hand in a hotel room. He had a .345 batting average in 43 games.
The Kottaras move means the Brewers are keeping Martin Maldonado as their backup catcher.
Milwaukee also optioned infielder Jeff Bianchi to AAA Nashville and selected the contract of right-handed pitcher Jim Henderson from Nashville.
Cool and bright Wednesday. Light snow likely Thursday night. A storm may hit Saturday.
