MILWAUKEE (AP) -The Milwaukee Brewers sent slumping second baseman Rickie Weeks to the team's Triple-A farm club in Nashville.
Right-handed pitcher Scott Linebrink was placed on leave after the birth of his first child, the team said Wednesday.
Pitcher Elmer Dessens was recalled from his rehabilitation assignment at Nashville and infielder/outfielder Joe Dillon was brought up from Nashville after the Tuesday night's game with the New York Mets.
Weeks was hitting .212 with five homers and 19 runs batted in 75 games. Dillon was batting .317 at Nashville with team highs of 20 home runs and 73 RBI.
Linebrink was acquired from San Diego in a trade last week. Dessens, who spent much of the season on the Brewers' disabled list with a shoulder strain, made three appearances for Nashville, going 1-0 with a 1.54 ERA.
