Jacob Nottingham batted .231 with five home runs and 40 RBIs in 83 games in 2019 with the Missions.
The Milwaukee Brewers optioned five players to the minors on Thursday. Four of those are headed to the San Antonio Missions, including two from last summer’s roster.

Catcher Jacob Nottingham and left-handed relief pitcher Angel Perdomo were both optioned to Triple-A San Antonio. Both were part of the 2019 Missions.

Right-handed pitchers Bobby Wahl and Eric Yardley were also optioned to the Missions.

Wahl, a reliever, missed last season after suffering a knee injury in spring training. He appeared in seven games for the New York Mets in 2018 and also seven games with the Oakland A’s in 2017.

The Brewers optioned right-handed pitcher J.P. Feyereisen to the Double-A Biloxi Shuckers.

Former Padres farm hand Eric Yardley headed back to Missions

Eric Yardley spent parts of five seasons in San Antonio (2014-18) when the Missions were part of the San Diego Padres’ organization in the Double-A Texas League.

The right-handed relief pitcher is headed back to San Antonio as a member of the Milwaukee Brewers organization. The Brewers optioned Yardley to the Triple-A Missions on Thursday.

Yardley was with the Padres last season. The Brewers claimed Yardley after the Padres put him on waivers in November.

Yardley appeared in 10 games with San Diego in 2019, all in relief. He recorded a 2.31 ERA with seven strikeouts and three walks in 11 2/3 innings. He also pitched in 43 games with Triple-A El Paso last summer.
