Brewers Claim Todd Coffey

WEDNESDAY: According to Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, the Brewers claimed Coffey off waivers and designated Laynce Nix for assignment.  With the Nix move, the Brewers' summer '06 bounty for Carlos Lee is all pretty much gone.  They do have pitcher Jake Odorizzi, picked 32nd overall as compensation for Cordero.

TUESDAY: According to John Fay of the Cincinnati Enquirer, the Reds designated reliever Todd Coffey for assignment today.  On his 28th birthday, no less.  Coffey did a fine job in '06 (even closing for a brief period), but has struggled since.

Coffey was known for his sprint in from the bullpen, but apparently he abandoned the practice last year.  This year, Coffey dropped 25 pounds in the offseason but subsequently lost a mile per hour off his fastball.
