5/19/2016: Apparently we're not the only ones who loved Lindbergh and Miller's book. The Brewers clearly read it, and have responded by signing free agent pitcher Santos Saldivar, a college ace who went undrafted due to size and durability concerns. Saldivar last pitched in the independent Pacific Association for the Sonoma Stompers, where he racked up a 2.05 ERA in five starts and eight relief appearances, striking out 58 hitters in 48 innings.

Huston Street will spend a couple of weeks on the DL with a strained oblique, discovered while he was warming up to pitch last night. Joe Smith will act as the (very capable) fill-in during this time. Street's DL stint can be backdated to his last appearance, which means he could reclaim his job as soon as May 8, but a few days after that is a safer bet.
