Update: The Brewers have rescinded the move and have placed Kintzler on the 15-day DL.
The Milwaukee Brewers have designated reliever Brandon Kintzler for assignment and order to clear a roster spot for shortstop Jean Segura. Segura has been on the disabled list with a broken finger and has been activated.
Kintzler, 30, has struggled badly this season giving up six runs in just seven inning this season. He was coming off back-to-back great seasons for the Brewers. He posted an ERA of 2.69 in 77 innings in 2013 and a 3.24 ERA in 58 1/3 innings in 2014.
There will be plenty of teams interested in Kintzler as the season moves on and teams need bullpen help.
