According to, 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.



  1. Dave L says:

    And of course he's a switch hitter so we can expect to enjoy mediocrity from both sides of the plate.

    He has mostly been used against lefties but his OPS is a little higher from the right.

    Made his MLB debut against the Rays in 2008

  2. Lane Meyer says:

    Cripes another infielder? We already have 10 Second basemen. Just what we need another light hitting infielder that can't handle 3B or SS as if Sutton, Sean Rod, Elliott Johnson and Rhymes weren't enough.

  3. Katherine says:

    Yea this is what we need to fix our defense. Another infielder who will commit 3 errors a game and can't hit. Our opponents should really be scared now.

  4. Rob says:

    Beckham really screwed up this year with his suspension - what an idiot. Don't you think he would have been called up by now. He's got to be better than a guy who is 3-40.

  5. wendy says:

    No... we definitely don't need another infielder! Sutton, rhymes, johnson, et al... enough for now! Esp with that BA! is he going to durham? charlotte?
