Brewers Claim Joe Inglett Off Waivers

The Brewers claimed infielder Joe Inglett off waivers from the Rangers, reports's Adam McCalvy.  McCalvy says the Brewers designated reliever Chris Smith for assignment to make room.

Inglett had been designated by the Rangers Monday to make room for Colby Lewis.  He'd joined Texas on a December waiver claim from the Blue Jays.

Smith, 29 in April, posted a 6.8 K/9, 3.7 BB/9, and 4.11 ERA in 46 innings out of Milwaukee's pen this year.  He also tossed a very strong 42.6 innings in Triple A – 1.27 ERA, 10.3 K/9, 1.3 BB/9.  Smith had hooked on with the Brewers as a free agent after being outrighted by Boston in October of '08.
