Arnett is back

Eric Arnett hopes fresh start will pay off on the mound
It's a clean slate for Eric Arnett.

The Milwaukee Brewers' 2009 first-round pick out of Indiana University returned to the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers on Thursday for his second stint with the team after a tough first half of the season that saw him finish with a 0-7 record in 12 starts, with a 6.87 ERA.

He's hoping his recent stint at rookie ball in the Arizona League will help him find more success on the mound for the Timber Rattlers, who lost 6-4 to Lansing in a Midwest League game at Time Warner Cable Field at Fox Cities Stadium on Friday.

Arnett pitched well in three relief appearances for Arizona, but did have a rough outing in his only start with the team, finishing his stint with a 2-0 record and a 7.31 ERA.

"Really, that's what got me in trouble in the first place," Arnett said about worrying about numbers. "Obviously, this time around, I want to have good numbers, but the main thing is keeping the team in the ballgames and developing as a pitcher to make it to the big leagues.

"I'm looking at it as a new slate. Everything in the past is behind you, so now you focus on what you worked on (in Arizona) and get back on track."

Wisconsin manager Jeff Isom expects Arnett to return to the mound within "the next couple of days."

"It's a new and improved Eric Arnett coming to town," Isom said.
