Brewers released RHP Hiram Burgos.

The move clears a spot on the Brewers' 40-man roster. Burgos has been limited to just 13 appearances in the minors over the past two seasons due to shoulder issues.

Hiram Burgos underwent a cleanup procedure on his right shoulder on Thursday afternoon.

The surgery was performed by Dr. James Andrews. The Brewers have not announced a recovery timetable for Burgos, who had a rough 6.50 ERA and 1.78 WHIP in 18 innings (four starts) this season at Triple-A Nashville.

Brewers optioned RHP Hiram Burgos to Triple-A Nashville.

The 26-year-old hurler started six games for the Brewers in 2013, posting a 6.44 ERA, 1.67 WHIP and 18/11 K/BB ratio over 29 1/3 innings. He'll be an option anytime the Brewers need a spot starter, but holds little in the way of fantasy value.

Hiram Burgos had to leave Monday's start at Triple-A Nashville with right shoulder discomfort.

It's presumably an aggravation of an injury from earlier this season. There's no word on how long Burgos will be out, but obviously he's not an option for the Brewers for a while.

Brewers activated RHP Hiram Burgos from the 15-day disabled list, optioned him to Triple-A Nashville.

Burgos has tossed six scoreless innings over his last two rehab appearances, but the Brewers have decided to keep him in the Triple-A rotation for now. He could get another shot if Johnny Hellweg struggles.

Hiram Burgos (shoulder) allowed two runs in four innings for High-A Brevard County on Tuesday in his second minor league rehab start.

Burgos, who is working his way back from a right shoulder impingement, struck out four and walked none. It's not clear if he'll require another rehab start. The 25-year-old right-hander has a 6.44 ERA and 18/11 K/BB ratio in 29 1/3 innings over six starts this season.

Hiram Burgos (shoulder) will begin a minor league rehab assignment Thursday with Low-A Wisconsin.

Burgos was originally scheduled to make the start on Monday but felt renewed soreness in his right shoulder. He's been out since May 22 with a shoulder impingement but is on track to return in a couple of weeks.
Wed, Jun 12, 2013 04:38:00 PM

Hiram Burgos' scheduled rehab start Monday has been pushed back due to stiffness in his right shoulder.

The Brewers are hoping it's only a minor setback. "He's playing catch today and is supposed to have a bullpen tomorrow, then we will re-evaluate," manager Ron Roenicke said Monday. "Hopefully, he is good and we can get him pitching in games."

Hiram Burgos (shoulder) is scheduled to begin a minor league rehab assignment Monday at Low-A Wisconsin.

Burgos has been sidelined since May 22 because of a right shoulder impingement. The young righty will likely be asked to make at least two starts on the farm and could be optioned to Triple-A once he's deemed healthy.
Sat, Jun 8, 2013 04:36:00 PM

Hiram Burgos (shoulder) will not return from the disabled list on Thursday, the first day he's eligible.

It's not clear how far along Burgos, who is dealing with a right shoulder impingement, is. Chris Narveson (finger) might be ready for activation before him, so Burgos could be optioned to Triple-A once healthy.

Brewers placed RHP Hiram Burgos on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to May 22, with a right shoulder impingement.

The move clears a spot for Tom Gorzelanny's return from the disabled list. The severity of Burgos' injury isn't yet clear and the Brewers haven't announced who will start in his place Tuesday. The rookie right-hander has a 6.44 ERA and 18/11 K/BB ratio in 29 1/3 innings over six starts this season.
Fri, May 24, 2013 04:45:00 PM

Hiram Burgos lost to the Pirates after allowing three runs in five innings on Thursday.

Burgos pitched pretty well in his first three starts last month, but he gave up 11 runs to the Reds on Saturday and he was pretty mediocre tonight. His next start is slated to come against the Dodgers on Tuesday, but it's possible he won't be in the rotation by then.
Thu, May 16, 2013 10:26:00 PM

Hiram Burgos was destroyed for 12 runs -- 10 earned -- over three innings Saturday in a loss to the Reds.

It's hard to imagine a spot start going any worse. Burgos yielded 11 hits and three walks to the 24 batters he faced. He now has a brutal 6.86 ERA on the season.
Sat, May 11, 2013 07:35:00 PM

Hiram Burgos will start Saturday against the Reds.

He'll make the start on nine days of rest, as the Brewers recently skipped him in the rotation due to two scheduled off-days this week. Marco Estrada will have his next start pushed back to Monday against the Pirates.
