Steve Geltz claimed on waivers by Brewers
RHP Steve Geltz, who was DFA'd last week by the Rays to create roster space, was claimed on waivers by the Brewers.
Geltz made the Rays opening day roster, but pitched his way back to the minors with a rough start, troubled particularly by the long ball. Overall, he posted a 5.74 ERA in 27 games for the Rays, allowing 11 home runs in 26 2/3 innings.
The year before, he was one of the Rays more effective relievers, posting a 3.74 ERA over 70 games, allowing only eight home runs in 67 1/3 innings.
Geltz, 29, was acquired in a spring 2013 trade for RHP Dane De La Rosa. Over parts of three seasons with the Rays he was 2-9, with 2 saves and a 4.22 ERA.
