According to MLBTradeRumors.com, the Rays have claimed infielder Brooks Conrad off of waivers from the Brewers. Conrad had been designated for assignment two days ago.
Conrad appeared in 25 games for the Brewers this season, playing all four infield positions. He was just 3-40 (.075). In 256 career big league games, Conrad has hit .212 with a .287 OBP and a .304 wOBA.
Conrad was drafted by the Astros in 2001 when Rays executive Gerry Hunsicker was the general manager.
