With Jett Bandy (rib) landing on the 10-day DL, Andrew Susac has been recalled from Triple-A.
Susac will serve as the backup catcher to Manny Pina and does not have fantasy value. Susac was batting .205 with eight homers in 51 games at Triple-A this season.
According to Brewers' manager Craig Counsell, catcher Andrew Susac will likely begin the season on the DL.
Susac has been bothered by a back injury over the last couple of weeks and is just starting to begin baseball activities again. Manny Pina and Jett Bandy will share time behind the plate for the Brewers to start the season. The 27-year-old Susac who was acquired from the Giants late last season could eventually get playing time when he is healthy but he is not worth fantasy consideration right now and will only be worth NL-only consideration when he gets healthy.
Andrew Susac went 1-for-5 with his first home run in a Brewers uniform on Sunday afternoon in Colorado. He drove in two, and struck out three times.
Susac won't be on many radars heading into 2016, but there's a chance he begins the season as the primary backup catcher and could always work his way into more plate appearances if he shows that he can hit Major League pitching.
