Brewers optioned 1B Sean Halton to Triple-A Nashville.

Halton had a decent showing in Cactus League play, hitting .261 (6-for-23) with a 7/6 BB/K ratio. He was a longshot to make the Opening Day roster though regardless of how he performed, and will continue to serve as organizational depth in the minor leagues.

Sean Halton hit a first-inning grand slam in the Brewers' defeat of the Cubs on Wednesday.

Halton has found a bit of a power stroke of late, having homered in three of his last six games. On Wednesday it was a grand slam off Cubs starter Chris Rusin. It was his only hit of the night. The first baseman is hitting .256/.326/.436 in 78 at-bats with the big club.

Sean Halton had an RBI single and a two-run homer in Thursday's victory over the Cardinals.

Halton's two-run shot in the fourth gave the Brewers a 4-0 lead, and that wound up being all the team needed. With Juan Francisco really struggling to make contact, Halton could see more playing time at first base down the stretch. He's hitting .254/.319/.381 over 69 plate appearances this season.

Sean Halton hit his first big-league homer Wednesday in the loss to the Reds.

Halton should play pretty regularly with Aramis Ramirez on the disabled list, giving him some short-term value in NL-only leagues. He'll need to capitalize quickly or the Brewers could demote him and give Hunter Morris a look later on.
