(Milwaukee, WI) -- Milwaukee Manager Craig Counsell says it's more about needing arms than performance, but right-hander Michael Blazek is in Triple-A Colorado Springs today, trying to forget about his start against Washington.

He surrendered six home runs in two-and-a-third innings, five in one inning and four-in-a-row. Blazek threw 61 pitches, meaning Counsell couldn't call on him for a few days. He has been replaced on the major league roster by another right-hander, Paolo Espino, who's coming up for the fourth time this season.
