Nate Orf was optioned to Triple-A Colorado Springs on Tuesday.
Orf went just 2-for-25 (.095) with the Brewers in limited playing time this season. He'll serve as organizational depth going forward.
Nate Orf went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in the Brewers' 3-2 win over the Twins Wednesday.
Orf took Jose Berrios deep in the seventh for his first career home run in what would ultimately be the deciding run in the game. The home run was also Orf's first major league hit. He played shortstop today, and if Orf hits he can certainly carve out playing time for himself at shortstop for Milwaukee.
Nate Orf has been promoted to the Milwaukee Brewers, taking the roster spot of RHP Aaron Wilkerson.
This is a long awaited call for Orf. The 28-year-old has been in the Brewers' minor league system since 2013. Orf has displayed tremendous plate discipline and contact skills throughout his minor league career. At Triple-A he had a 15.3% strikeout rate and 11% walk rate. He was slashing an impressive .307/.412/.463 with six home runs and 20 steals. Though he probably won't be a starter right away Orf is a sneaky deep league player to add.
