Brewers designated RHP Kevin Shackelford for assignment.

Shackelford had a 6.35 ERA, 1.80 WHIP, and 10/9 K/BB ratio in 28 1/3 innings this season at Double-A Huntsville. The 25-year-old will likely pass through waivers. He was a 21st-round pick of the Brewers in 2010.

Brewers optioned RHP Kevin Shackelford to Double-A Huntsville; reassigned OFs Kentrail Davis and Mitch Haniger, INFs Hector Gomez and Taylor Green and RHP David Goforth to minor league camp.

There are no surprises among these cuts. Shackelford held a 0.92 ERA in 20 relief appearances at Huntsville last season and should make his way up to Triple-A before long.

Brewers purchased the contract of RHP Kevin Shackelford from Double-A Huntsville.

Shackelford had an odd season in 2013, logging a poor 5.06 ERA at Class-A Brevard County, but posting a sparkling 0.92 ERA over 29 1/3 relief innings at Huntsville. The 6-foot-5 right-hander has performed better ever since the Brewers shifted him to relief.
