• Roenicke said it wasn't a difficult call to promote Fiers, even though it meant interrupting his success as a starting pitcher in the Minors and moving him to relief. None of the relievers pitching best at Nashville, including Donovan Hand, Dustin Molleken and Jeremy Jeffress, are on the 40-man roster.
"He was a guy," Roenicke said of Fiers. "[Alfredo] Figaro. They just activated him. He'd been out with a hamstring. Guys on the roster is the problem. We do have an issue if we add on to what we're doing here. We talk about bringing [Jeff] Bianchi back once he started swinging well. Well, there's another roster spot. To keep adding guys is difficult to do."
• Brewers catcher Lucroy will be at MLB Network studios on Monday to appear on "MLB Now" with Brian Kenny, Al Leiter and Joel Sherman. The show airs at 4 p.m. CT.
