Brewers Claim Hector Gomez; DFA Brandon Kintzler

The Brewers have claimed shortstop Hector Gomez off waivers from the Rockies, reports MLB.com's Adam McCalvy.  In a corresponding move, right-hander Brandon Kintzler has been designated for assignment.

Gomez, 24, was ranked as the 95th-best prospect in the game by Baseball America prior to the 2008 season.  He has a career .268/.306/.425 line in 1791 minor league plate appearances, and he made his Major League debut last season, appearing in two games with Colorado.  The 24-year-old has played in just three minor league games this year due to a groin injury. 

Kintzler also has limited big-league experience, making 16 relief appearances for the Brewers in 2010-11 and posting a 4.91 ERA and recording 24 strikeouts in 22 innings.  Kintzler was originally a 40th-round draft pick of the Padres in 2004 and he has a 3.56 ERA and a 2.81 K/BB ratio in 188 minor league games, 44 of them starts.
