Competitive Edge Analysis

Kintzler was a member of the Brewers organization for a long time, appearing in 172 games major league games since 2010. His 2015 season was shortened by some knee issues, but he has shown the ability to be an effective bullpen arm, posting a 3.24 with the Brewers in 2014. If he can regain his form from before the injury, Kintzler could be a nice piece of pitching depth for the Twins going forward.

Kintzler was outrighted by the Brewers on Monday, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Kintzler's career seems to be winding down after spending the last six seasons in the majors with the Brewers. His inability to stay on the 40-man roster certainly doesn't bode well for his prospects moving forward as 31-year-old relief pitcher who had moderate value during even in his best playing days.

Kintzler's designation for assignment was rescinded Friday, with the team opting instead to place him on the 15-day DL with left knee tendinitis.

The 30-year-old gave up five runs on 10 hits in seven appearances after his early-May callup, but it seems the knee issue may have played a part in his struggles. Kintzler, who posted a 3.24 ERA and 1.34 WHIP in 64 appearances last season, is without a timetable for a return.

Kintzler was designated for assignment by the Brewers on Tuesday.

Kintzler was just cleared to return from a finger injury, but the Brewers decided he was the player on their 40-man roster they were willing to part with, and placed him on waivers to open up a 40-man spot for Elian Herrera. Kintzler's next step will be determined after his waiver period comes to a close.

Kintzler (finger) was activated from the minor league disabled list Tuesday.

Kintzler is ready to pitch again after recovering from his injury. He appeared in 135 games for the Brewers over the last two seasons, so he could be an option for the club at some point this season.

Kintzler was placed on the minor league disabled list Saturday with a nail avulsion of his right middle finger, the Journal-Sentinel's Tom Haudricourt reports.

It sounds like Kintzler actually lost the finger nail on that finger, which in addition to sounding quite painful, could result in him being sidelined for a few weeks. At some point this season he will probably be back in the Brewers' bullpen, but when that happens, it likely won't be as the closer.
