Brewers make six roster moves
Right-handers Dillard, Green headed to Triple-A Nashville
PHOENIX -- In their second round of camp moves, the Brewers optioned six right-handed pitchers to various levels of their farm system on Sunday.Tim Dillard and Nick Green were optioned to Triple-A Nashville. Omar Aguilar and Alex Periard are bound for Double-A Huntsville. Mark Rogers was optioned to Class A Brevard County, and Cody Scarpetta will go to Class A Wisconsin.
Of the half-dozen, Dillard, a 25-year-old who was a 34th-round pick in the 2002 First-Year Player Draft, left the most lasting impression.In 6 1/3 innings of Cactus League play, Dillard allowed one earned run, equating to a 1.42 ERA. Aguilar and Green also saw considerable exhibition action, with different results. Aguilar, 23, allowed four runs and four walks in six innings. Green, 24, allowed six runs and six walks in seven innings. Control issues are a quick way to get on Milwaukee manager Ken Macha's bad side.
