Pearl, Miss. – The Milwaukee Brewers and Huntsville Stars have made a few roster moves prior to tonight’s game against the Mississippi Braves. Infielder Andy Gonzalez has been transferred back to the Triple-A Nashville Sounds. Replacing him on the roster is infielder Adrian Williams from Nashville. Additionally, RHP Santo Manzanillo has finished his rehab assignment in Arizona and was activated from the disabled list and transferred to Class-A Wisconsin.

Gonzalez, with his second stint with the Stars this season, hit .301 (40-for-133) with four doubles, five home runs and 19 RBIs. He drew 35 walks and struck out just 24 times.

Williams started the season with Class-A Wisconsin, hitting .165 (16-for-97) in 97 games with seven RBI. He played nine games with the Helena Brewers (Rookie), going 3-for-24 (.125). He was transferred to Triple-A Nashville on August 19. In his three games with the Sounds, he went 2-for-6 (.333). Williams was drafted in the 45th round of the 2011 First-Year Player Draft by the Brewers.

Relief pitcher Manzanillo has been on the disabled list since June 26 (retroactive to June 23). In 12 games with the Stars this season, he is 0-4 with a 6.08 ERA (13.1ip/9er).

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