Brewers Ink Tyner, Will Dump Gwynn Jr.

11:00pm: Gwynn has been placed on waivers.

2:24pm: Brewers GM Doug Melvin told Haudricourt that there will be an announcement concerning Gwynn Jr. on Friday.  It appears he will be placed on waivers.

1:33pm: According to Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, the Brewers have signed outfielder Jason Tyner to their Triple-A Nashville roster.

Tyner, 31, has spent time in the majors with the Mets, Rays, Twins and Indians.  He spent all of last year in Triple-A, where he hit .248 with 12 doubles, a homer and 18 RBI in just over 300 at-bats.  Haudricourt surmises that this signing could result in the Brewers waiving Tony Gwynn Jr, who is out of options and unlikely to make the final roster.
