Brewers released RHP Cody Scarpetta.

The 25-year-old right-hander has spent his entire minor league career in the Brewers organization after being drafted in 2007. He missed the entire 2012 season after undergoing Tommy John surgery, returning to toss 34 innings for High-A Brevard County in 2013, posting a 7.15 ERA, 2.15 WHIP and 25/36 K/BB ratio in 34 innings. A once very promising young arm, there should be another organization willing to take a chance on him.

Brewers sent RHP Cody Scarpetta outright to Triple-A Nashville.

The Brewers now have 38 players on their 40-man roster. Scarpetta, 24, required Tommy John surgery in June and will likely be sidelined until around midseason next year.

Brewers prospect right-hander Cody Scarpetta underwent Tommy John surgery.

The news was confirmed by Brewers assistant general manager Gord Ash. Scarpetta, a 23-year-old starting pitcher, will miss the rest of this season and the early part of 2013. He is out options after this year.

Brewers pitching prospect Cody Scarpetta will be shut down for three weeks while nursing a sore pitching elbow.

He'll resume a throwing program in late April. Scarpetta was one of the earlier cuts from Brewers camp, but he has some upside as a relief prospect and could be summoned from Double-A Huntsville at some point this season if he can get healthy.

Brewers optioned RHP Cody Scarpetta and OF-1B Brock Kjeldgaard to Double-A Huntsville.

The Brewers also reassigned right-hander Taylor Jungmann, left-hander Jed Bradley and catcher Anderson De La Rosa to minor league camp. Scarpetta, 23, had a 3.85 ERA and 98/61 K/BB ratio over 117 innings last season at the Double-A level. He has averaged 4.6 BB/9 over parts of four seasons in the minors, so it's unlikely he makes it as a starter in the long-term.

Brewers optioned RHP Cody Scarpetta to Double-A Huntsville.

No corresponding roster move was announced. Scarpetta, 22, had a one-day stint with the Brewers and didn't appear in a game. He returns to a 4.40 ERA, 1.42 WHIP and 79/43 K/BB ratio over 86 innings with Huntsville. The righty can touch the mid-90s with his fastball and has the best curveball in the Brewers' system, so we expect to see him back later this year.

Brewers recalled RHP Cody Scarpetta from Double-A Huntsville.

Scarpetta, 22, has been starting for Huntsville, posting a 4.40 ERA, 1.42 WHIP and 79/43 K/BB ratio over 86 innings, but he'll be used out of the bullpen with the Brew Crew. The righty can touch the mid-90s with his fastball and has the best curveball in the Brewers' system, so they're hoping he can provide some pen help despite being so green.
