HAMMOND, La. – The Milwaukee Brewers have purchased the contract of former Southeastern Louisiana pitcher Wade Miley (Southeastern 2006-08), recalling the left-hander from his season-opening rehab assignment.

Miley, one of seven former Lions currently active in professional baseball, made three starts with the Biloxi, Shuckers, the Brewers Double-A affiliate, as he worked his way back from a groin pull suffered in his final Spring Training start.

A native of Loranger, Louisiana, Miley is slated to make his Brewers’ debut Wednesday at Cincinnati. First pitch against the Reds is scheduled for 6:10 p.m. at Great American Ball Park.

In his final rehab start, Miley turned in a gem Friday night against the Birmingham Barons and former Lion Jameson Fisher (Southeastern 2013, 2015-16). The southpaw scattered two hits and two walks across six scoreless innings, striking out 11 batters. He also picked off a pair of runners.

Fisher turned in a 1-for-3 night at the plate, picking up one of the two hits off Miley.

In his first season at Birmingham, Fisher is hitting .208 with a pair of doubles, three home runs and eight RBI through 21 games with the Chicago White Sox’ Double-A affiliate. The native of Zachary, Louisiana is starting to settle in, pick up five hits in his last 17 at-bats (.294 average). Fisher split last season with the Kannapolis (N.C.) Intimidators and Winston-Salem (N.C) Dash, the White Sox’ Single-A affiliates.

Tate Scioneaux (Southeastern 2013-15) is enjoying his second season with the Altoona Curve, the Double-A affiliate of the Pittsburgh Pirates. Last season the right-hander went 6-5 with 17 saves and a 2.39 ERA, helping lead the Curve to an Eastern League championship and earning the team’s Fireman of the Year award.

A native of Reserve, Louisiana, Scioneaux is currently 0-1 with a pair of saves and a 3.12 ERA in seven appearances. He has walked two in 8.2 innings of work, limiting hitters to a .219 batting average and picking up 11 strikeouts.

Carson Crites (Southeastern 2015-17) is in extended Spring Training with the Minnesota Twins organization awaiting his assignment for the season. In his rookie year of pro ball, Crites hit .300 with 11 doubles, four home runs and 30 RBI with the Elizabethton (Tenn.) Twins.

Andro Čutura (Southeastern 2012-14), also in the Twins organization, is with the Fort Myers Miracle of the Florida State League (Single-A Advanced). The right-hander is 1-0 with a 5.40 ERA in two appearances, striking out seven in 8.1 innings. The native of Pearl River, Louisiana is enjoying his first action in almost two seasons, working his way back from Tommy John surgery.

Kyle Keller (Southeastern 2012-15) is also in the Florida State League this season, pitching for the Jupiter Hammerheads (Maimi Marlins). After two seasons with the Single-A Greensboro (N.C.) Grasshoppers in which he averaged more than one strikeout per inning, the New Orleans, Louisiana native has walked one and struck out 16 batters in 11 innings. He is 0-1 with three saves and a 2.45 ERA in nine relief appearances.

Mac Sceroler (Southeastern 2015-17) is a member of the Dayton (Ohio) Dragons starting rotation. Currently 1-2 with a 1-2 record and 6.00 ERA for the Cincinnati Reds’ Single-A affiliate, the native of Denham Springs, Louisiana earned the first win of his professional career April 11 against the Lake County (Ohio) Captains.
