Breaking News: Bush optioned to Nashville

Starting pitcher Dave Bush was the odd man out Sunday, getting demoted to AAA Nashville to make room for outfielder Mike Cameron, who is eligible to join the Brewers after having finished his suspension of 25 games for his second offense of testing positive for a banned substance.
The Brewers’ rotation now becomes Ben Sheets, Jeff Suppan, Yovani Gallardo, Carlos Villanueva, and Manny Parra, unless manager Ned Yost decides to switch one of his young guns (Villanueva, for example, would be scheduled to pitch this coming Friday, but–since he last pitched on Saturday–could be moved up to Thursday).
Bush’s demotion likely comes as a bit of a surprise to many Brewers’ fans, as Bush as pitched relatively well in his past three outings. Still, the club seems dedicated to giving their up-and-coming arms a shot. Skipper Ned Yost, however, emphasized that he hopes Bush does well enough in Nashville to warrant being re-added to the rotation…of course, only time will tell.
