MILWAUKEE (AP) – The Brewers announced Sunday that right-hander Brandon Kintzler had been put on the 15-day disabled list with a strained rotator cuff.

Right-hander Rob Wooten was recalled from Triple-A Nashville on Sunday prior to Milwaukee’s game against the Pirates. Milwaukee won the first two games of the three-game series and have won eight straight.

“He’ll be ready, that it’s not that big of a deal,” manager Ron Roenicke said.

Kintzler had pitched five innings without an earned run in five appearances.
