PITTSBURGH. Dinelson Lamet was hired by the Milwaukee Brewers two days after being acquired in a deal that brought Josh Hader in the San Diego Padres.
The right-hander arrived in Milwaukee on Monday as part of a package including a closer Taylor Rogers and avenues Robert Gasser and Esteri Rodriguez. Lamet has played 13 games for the Padres this season, going 0-1 with a 9.49 ERA.
“Dinelson has a good hand and was included in the trade to help balance the trade,” he said. David Stearns, Brewers president of baseball operations. “As subsequent transactions played out, roster selection became a bit more difficult. We hope we can keep it in our system.”
The 30-year-old has allowed 13 runs (12 earned) in seven innings in his last eight assist appearances.
After exchanging Hadera, the Brewers brought in a pitcher. Matt Bush on Monday from the Texas Rangers for two junior league members, left-hander Antoine Kelly and utility worker Mark Matthias. Then they purchased a pitcher Trevor Rosenthalwho hasn’t played since 2020 and is on the injured list, from the San Francisco Giants on Tuesday.
Pedro Severino was also assigned to Wednesday’s mission. He has had four hits at 18 at-bats (.222) with one RBI in eight games since returning from an 80-game suspension to start the season under a Major League Baseball joint drug deal.
The catcher tests positive for clomiphene, a female fertility drug sometimes used to mask the effects of steroid use. Severino said he was prescribed a drug containing the drug after he had difficulty starting a family with his wife.
