Brewers DFA Brock Kjeldgaard, Edwin Maysonet

The Brewers have designated outfielder Brock Kjeldgaard and infielder Edwin Maysonet for assignment, according to a team press release.  This is a corresponding move to the Zack Greinke trade, as the Brewers opened up 40-man roster spots for Jean Segura, Ariel Pena and John Hellweg.

Kjeldgaard, 26, was taken as a pitcher in the 34th round of the 2005 amateur draft, but he converted to the outfield in his third pro season.  The Edmonton native has a career batting line of .251/.333/.454 in 2215 minor league plate appearances, never reaching higher than the Double-A level. 

Maysonet posted a .250/.297/.350 line in 66 plate appearances with the Brewers this season and has an overall .654 OPS in 152 Major League PAs with the Brewers and Astros.  The 30-year-old was picked by Houston in the 19th round of the 2003 amateur draft.  Maysonet has played mostly shortstop and second base in his career and has a .701 OPS in 3615 PAs over 10 minor league seasons.

Kjeldgaard would be worth picking up… he’s been between hurt and terrible this year, but he’s shown plenty of pop in the past. Keep the moves coming, Brew Crew. It’s been tough to watch most of this year, but a least I can hold onto some hope that next year will be better.
