The Milwaukee Brewers don’t seem to have any great options for a replacement, but the team sent struggling starter Taylor Jungmann to Class AAA Colorado Springs on Friday. They called up reliever David Goforth to take his spot on the 25-man roster.
Jungmann departs with an 0-4 record and 9.15 earned run average in five starts. He lasted just 3 2/3 innings in his most recent loss, 7-2 to the Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field on Thursday.
In three of his five starts this season, Jungmann pitched four innings or less.
Counting the latter part of the 2015 season, Jungmann is 0-7 with a 9.35 ERA in his last 10 starts.
Who the Brewers turn to for a replacement is still up in the air. Junior Guerra is 0-2 with a 4.63 ERA in four starts at Colorado Springs. Left-hander Josh Hader is off to a great start at Class AA Biloxi, but the Brewers would like to not have to rush him to the majors at this point.
Goforth spent time with the Brewers last season and was 1-1 with a 4.35 ERA in eight appearances at Colorado Springs so far this spring.
