Huntsville, Ala. – The Milwaukee Brewers and Huntsville Stars have made a roster move prior to tonight’s game against the Montgomery Biscuits. To fill the vacated roster spot left by the release of LHP Dan Merklinger, RHP Josh Butler was activated from the disabled list at Triple-A Nashville and transferred to Huntsville.

The 27-year-old Butler started the season at Nashville and went 0-3 with a 4.76 ERA (17.1ip/9er) in four starts before being placed on the disabled list on April 25. In four rehab appearances (two starts) with the Arizona Brewers, the California native went 0-0 with a 4.50 ERA (6ip/3er). Butler spent time with the Stars back in 2010, posting a 3-5 record with a 4.56 ERA (53.1ip/27er) in 10 starts. He was acquired from Tampa Bay back on April 22, 2008 in exchange for outfielder Gabe Gross.

With these moves, the Stars active roster is at 25 with three on the disabled list.
