Guilmet, 28, is not a hard thrower, but he has been terrific in the Minor Leagues, sporting a 2.69 ERA in 262 games, including a 2.48 ERA in 115 appearances at the Triple-A level. In limited Major League duty, he has allowed 15 earned runs in 21 innings over parts of three seasons for the Indians, Orioles and Rays.
The Brewers are Guilmet's seventh organization in the past two years -- fifth since the end of last season -- and third this month. He had just been claimed off waivers by the Dodgers from the Rays on July 10, and he was designated for assignment Thursday, amid a flurry of Dodgers acquisitions.
