Alfredo Figaro
Aug 30: Figaro was recalled from Triple-A Nashville on Saturday. The impending league-wide roster expansion allows the Brewers the flexibility to add Figaro a bit early, as they can just recall Jimmy Nelson early next week. Figaro has spent nearly the entire year at Nashville, posting a 3.71 ERA and 1.45 WHIP, and he'll likely just work in mop-up duty the rest of the way.

Jun 29: Figaro was optioned back to Triple-A Nashville on Sunday, Andrew Gruman of FOX Sports Wisconsin reports. Figaro will be sent down in a corresponding move that will bring up Jeff Bianchi. The Brewers had an extra arm in the bullpen and were short on the bench, and with possible injuries to Jean Segura and Carlos Gomez on Saturday, the team likely needed another option off the bench, leaving Figaro as the odd man out.

Jun 25: The Brewers recalled Figaro from Triple-A Nashville on Wednesday. Figaro, who has appeared in 34 games with the big club over the last two years, will replace Mike Fiers in the Brewers' bullpen. He owns a 5.02 ERA with Nashville this season, but he pitched better lately, giving up just four earned runs over his last 11.2 innings. Expect Figaro to pitch in middle-to-long relief for the Brewers.

Apr 24: Figaro will be optioned to Triple-A Nashville when Brandon Kintzler (neck) is activated from the disabled list, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. Kintzler is set to return to the Brewers on Friday, so Figaro figures to be sent down sometime prior to the beginning of the Brewers' series with the Cubs that begins that day.

Apr 21: Figaro was called up from Triple-A Nashville on Monday. Figaro has logged two rocky outings among his seven at Nashville this season, aiding in his 5.00 ERA and 1.556 WHIP in nine innings. However, with eight strikeouts versus no walks, he's displaying a potential to punch out batters. The 29-year-old will replace Rob Wooten in the bullpen, acting as middle relief.

Mar 22: Figaro was optioned to Triple-A Nashville on Saturday. Figaro looked like a solid candidate for a middle-relief role but will open 2014 in the minors. His demotion improves the roster odds for Zach Duke and Tyler Thornburg, among others.
