Brewers recalled RHP Rob Wooten from Triple-A Nashville.

Wooten was one of the final cuts from the Brewers' bullpen competition this spring. Now the right-hander has a chance to make himself useful in middle relief with Brandon Kintzler out indefinitely due to a rotator cuff strain.

Rob Wooten struck out two in a perfect inning Thursday and hasn't allowed a run in 11 innings since being called up by the Brewers.

If only the Brewers had received the kind of luck with the bullpen last year that they have this year, there's a great chance they would have been a playoff team. Wooten doesn't project as a closer or anything going forward, but he's had great success with his mid-80s cutter so far.
