Brewers option Magnifico to Triple-A, reinstate Santana

The Milwaukee Brewers have optioned pitcher Damien Magnifico to Triple-A Colorado Springs to make room for Friday's starter, Brent Suter.

The team has also reinstated outfielder Domingo Santana from the 15-day disabled list and designated outfielder Ramon Flores for assignment.

The 25-year-old Magnifico made his major-league debut Tuesday vs. the Chicago Cubs, allowing one run in one inning of work. He pitched a scoreless inning Wednesday vs. the Cubs.

Suter will be making his major-league debut Friday as he starts vs. the Seattle Mariners. The 26-year-old left-hander has a 3.50 ERA in 26 appearances (15 starts) for Colorado Springs this season and a career 3.38 ERA in 118 minor-league appearances (84 starts). The Brewers selected him in the 31st round of the 2012 draft out of Harvard.

Santana, 24, has been on the disabled list since June because of right elbow soreness. He is hitting .234 in 128 at-bats this season for the Brewers with four home runs and 13 RBI.

Flores is batting .205 in 249 at-bats this year for the Brewers, who acquired him last November from the Mariners. He's batting just .140 since the All-Star break.
