Brewers recall RHP Aaron Wilkerson, option RHP Jay Jackson

The Milwaukee Brewers continue to tinker with their bullpen. Aaron Wilkerson has been recalled from Triple-A San Antonio and Jay Jackson has been optioned.

Wilkerson has been effective as a starter in Triple-A. In 14 starts, he’s gone 7-1 with a 3.06 ERA. However, he hasn’t found the same success in the big leagues. In five relief appearances, Wilkerson has allowed earned runs each time out.

According to Adam McCalvy of, Wilkerson will be the go-to guy if Gio Gonzalez shows any sign of shoulder struggle in his start on Saturday.

Jackson has made 10 appearances with the Brewers posting a 5.79 ERA across 14 innings.
