The Milwaukee Brewers have outrighted right-hander Tim Dillard to Triple-A Nashville, reports Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

In corresponding roster moves, the Brewers have recalled right-hander Tyler Thornburg and called up shortstop Jeff Bianchi from Triple-A.

Dillard, 28, has appeared in 28 games for the Brewers this season, posting an ERA and WHIP of 4.38 and 1.595 over his 37 innings. The right-hander owns career major league marks of 4.70 and 1.470 over his four seasons and 73 appearances with the Brewers.

The 23-year-old Thornburg made his major league debut with Milwaukee earlier this season, giving up five runs on seven hits over his 5 1/3 innings pitched. The right-hander has spent most of the season with the Brewers’ Double- and Triple-A affiliates, maintaining an ERA and WHIP of 3.04 and 1.075 between the two levels.

Bianchi, 25, has also spent the year playing between Double- and Triple-A. He’s hit at a combined clip of .319/.372/.378 with 10 doubles, one home run and 29 runs scored.
