The Brewers announced that the Rays have claimed INF Brooks Conrad off waivers.
Conrad, 32, played in 25 games for the Brewers, appearing at all four infield positions but hitting only .075 (3-for-40). He is a .212 hitter over parts of five seasons with the A's, Braves and Brewers.
Conrad may be most know for his record-tying three error performance for Atlanta in a 2010 playoff game vs. San Francisco.
It is not clear yet what the Rays plan to do with Conrad, or what other move has to be made.
