Sogard released, Peralta sent to Class A Timber Rattlers among seven Brewers roster moves

The Milwaukee Brewers have made seven roster moves on Thursday, particularly made to try and help the tired bullpen after 16 games in 16 days before their five-game series in Pittsburgh.

The Brewers have brought back from the 60-day disabled list:
- Starting pitcher Wade Miley (who will start Thursday)

They have called up:
- Pitcher Alec Asher
- Pitcher Adrian Houser

The Brewers have released infielder Eric Sogard, sent infielder Nate Orf and pitcher Jorge Lopez to AAA Colorado Springs and optioned pitcher Freddy Peralta to the single-A Wisconsin Timber Rattlers.

Sogard had just a .134 batting average and a .406 OPS with two RBI in 97 at bats.

Orf spent a short time with Milwaukee, with a home run on July 4th against Minnesota as his first hit in the major leagues.

Peralta has a 4-1 record so far this year with a 2.65 ERA. His demotion to A is probably not a reflection of his talent and performance, but a function of the timeliness of the All-Star break and other factors.
