Local added to minor-league team

Pitcher Zack Brown of Seymour recently was named to the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers roster.

The tentative roster for the 2017 Midwest League season was set Tuesday.

The Milwaukee Brewers’ organization have placed 28 players on the roster, according to the team’s website.

The team will need to be down to the 25-player limit by tonight when the team opens its schedule with a game against the Quad Cities River Bandits.

Brown is scheduled to pitch tonight in the team’s season opener, which will start at 6 p.m.

After three appearances with the Helena Brewers in the rookie league last season, Brown got moved up to the Single-A Timber Rattlers.

The Brewers draftee threw two games for the Timber Rattlers before reaching his pitch limit assigned by the team.
