Brewers purchased the contract of INF Jeff Bianchi from Triple-A Nashville.

Jun 29 - 11:48 AM

Brewers sent INF Jeff Bianchi outright to Triple-A Nashville.

Bianchi was batting just .145 with a .318 OPS in 21 games for the Brewers. The 27-year-old infielder can either accept the outright assignment or become a free agent. Either way, he is now off Milwaukee's 40-man roster.
May 24 - 7:49 PM

Brewers activated INF Jeff Bianchi from the 15-day disabled list.

Jeff Bianchi (hip) is scheduled to begin a minor league rehab assignment Saturday with Double-A Huntsville.

Bianchi missed most of the Cactus League schedule due to the injury. The 26-year-old is out of options, so the Brewers will have to add him to the major league roster or expose him to waivers at the end of his rehab assignment.

‪Brewers placed INF Jeff Bianchi on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to March 22, with left hip bursitis.

Jeff Bianchi will not play for Italy in the World Baseball Classic due to a left groin strain.

Jeff Bianchi blasted a three-run homer, the first of his MLB career, powering the Brewers to a 4-1 victory over the Cubs in Chicago on Tuesday.

Bianchi finished the night 1-for-3 with the critical blast off Travis Wood in the third inning. The 25-year-old infielder isn't considered a top prospect and shouldn't be owned in most fantasy leagues. He's hitting .227 with a homer and four RBI through his first 22 at-bats.

Jeff Bianchi won't be eligible to join the Brewers' active roster until Saturday.

He'll take the roster spot of Randy Wolf, who was given his release Wednesday. Bianchi is 0-for-13 in eight games with the Brewers this season and will serve as a utility infielder. The 25-year-old is unlikely to have much fantasy value.
