• Brewers amateur scouting director Bruce Seid said the team had no new deals to announce after Friday's 4 p.m. CT deadline to sign selections from the First-Year Player Draft. The Brewers had already signed each of their first 16 picks, 18 of their top 19 picks and 24 of their top 27.

The top unsigned selection was 15th rounder Buck Farmer, who will return to Georgia Tech.

• Roenicke said right-hander Shaun Marcum played catch again Friday and "looked free," but had no new information about Marcum's return to the mound. He has not pitched since June 14 because of a stiff elbow.

• Right-hander Tim Dillard accepted his outright assignment to Triple-A Nashville and will remain in the organization. The Brewers sent him down Thursday to make room for Thornburg. To make room for Dillard in the Minors, the Brewers released reliever Victor Garate.
