FROM TERRE HAUTE TO THE MAJOR LEAGUES: Stetter getting career back on track with Milwaukee

TERRE HAUTE — Finally some good news for the professional baseball career of former Indiana State relief pitcher Mitch Stetter.

The left-handed Stetter pitched in both games of a doubleheader for Huntsville (AA) on July 21. Five days later, he was promoted to Nashville (AAA). In his first outing with the Sounds, he tossed a hitless, scoreless inning vs. Memphis on Thursday.

Stetter was demoted by the Brewers last season, underwent hip surgery, then was released in the offseason. He signed a minor-league deal with Houston this spring, then was released again. Soon after, he signed a minor-league deal with the Brewers and had pitched all this season at Huntsville.

Stetter has appeared in 132 games at the major-league level, all in relief, all with Milwaukee. His best season was 2009, appearing in 71 games with a 4-1 won-lost record.
