Jacob Nottingham had seen time as both a catcher and first baseman with the San Antonio Missions this season.
Nottingham was called up to the majors on Thursday when an injury left the Milwaukee Brewers in need of another catcher.
In 26 games with Triple-A San Antonio, Nottingham hit .247 with two home runs and 10 RBIs. He was on a hot streak before called up, recording hits in 9 of his last 12 games with the Missions and hitting .324 in that stretch.
Nottingham played in nine games with the Brewers last season and 50 games in Triple-A.
