Brewers lefthander Zach Braddock was placed on the disabled list with minor shoulder tendinitis on Friday, putting a hold on what has otherwise been an outstanding season at low Class A West Virginia.
A 2005 18th-round pick out of a New Jersey high school, Braddock went 3-1, 1.30 with 59 strikeouts in 42 innings for the Power. The 19-year-old lefty already had two double-digit strikeout performances to his credit, including his last outing when he whiffed 11 over seven innings in a win against Asheville.
With Braddock on the shelf, the Brewers activated 2006 first-round pick Jeremy Jeffress at West Virginia. Jeffress, who went 16th overall in the draft last year, ranked as the No. 2 prospect in the Rookie-level Arizona League where he went 2-5, 5.88 with 37 strikeouts in 34 innings.
