Brewers activate Cain, place Braun and Pina on DL

Posted: Updated:

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- The Milwaukee Brewers have activated centerfielder Lorenzo Cain off the 10-day disabled list and placed outfielder Ryan Braun and catcher Manny Pina on the DL as part of eight roster moves on Sunday.

Right-hander Aaron Wilkerson was optioned to Triple-A Colorado Springs and left-handed reliever Mike Zagurski was designated for assignment. Top pitching prospect Corbin Burnes, catcher Jacob Nottingham, and infielder Nate Orf were called up from Triple-A.

Cain, who's hitting .291 with eight homers and 26 RBIs, was in the lineup and batting third for Sunday's series finale against Atlanta. He's been out since June 24.

Braun, hitting .235 with 10 homers and 35 RBIs, also was on the DL with back problems in mid-May, missing six games.

Pina was placed on the DL retroactive to Saturday with a left biceps strain. He's hitting .227 with six homers and 16 RBIs.
