Brewers optioned RHP Rob Wooten, 1B Matt Clark and INF/OF Jason Rogers to Triple-A Colorado Springs.
Wooten was a potential swing reliever coming into the spring. He actually pitched quite well, posting an ERA of 1.26 and a 1.047 WHIP in 14 and 1/3 spring innings. It's likely that he'll be back with the big club when the Brewers need a stretch man. Mar 31 - 3:57 PM
