Brewers rescind DFA of Brandon Kintzler, put him on the disabled list instead

The Brewers designated reliever Brandon Kintzler for assignment on Friday afternoon, but they rescinded it a few hours later when they learned the right-hander was suffering from tendinitis in his left knee. They have instead placed him on the 15-day disabled list, the club announced on Twitter.

Kintzler, 30, has pitched seven innings thus far, allowing six runs (five earned) on 12 hits and five walks with seven strikeouts. He was expended when shortstop Jean Segura was activated from the disabled list, so no additional roster move will be made with the latest change.
