The Brewers announced that reliever Thyago Vieira will be placed on the injured list with a calf strain and fellow pitcher Colin Rea will be recalled from Triple-A Nashville to take his place on the roster.
Vieira made two appearances for the Brewers allowing one unearned run in the Brewers’ loss to the Nationals on Sunday. In three innings of work, he struck out two batters and walked one. In 33 appearances with Triple-A Nashville, Vieira has a 3.35 ERA with 51 strikeouts in 37 2⁄3 entrance.
Rea, who took Adrian Houser’s place in the starting rotation until Houser returned from injury last week, last appeared Wednesday in an extended relief role after Trevor Megill started at “starter.” Allowed one run through 4 2⁄3 innings, striking out three.
In 23 games this season (21 starts), Rea has a 4.89 ERA and 5.01 FIP with 100 strikeouts in 114 innings. He will likely start Tuesday or work in an extended relief role for the Brewers at some point during the Cardinals series, since he hasn’t pitched since his last appearance with Milwaukee.
