Brewers Claim Miguel De Los Santos

The Brewers have claimed left-hander Miguel De Los Santos off waivers from the Rangers, tweets Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. Texas released De Los Santos on Friday after designating him for assignment on September 1.

The 24-year-old posted a 5.22 ERA with 10.7 K/9 and 5.2 BB/9 in 58 2/3 innings at Double-A Frisco this year covering 22 relief appearances and four starts. Baseball America ranked De Los Santos 29th among Rangers prospects before the season, crediting him for the best changeup in the organization.

This is the second De Los Santos the Brewers have acquired in the last five weeks. Milwaukee picked up Fautino De Los Santos, no relation, from the A's in exchange for George Kottaras on July 29. The Brewers now have one open spot on their 40-man roster. For the latest on teams with open 40-man roster spots, check out Ben Nicholson-Smith's post from earlier in the week.

They go on waivers when released and can be claimed.

“This is the second De Los Santos the Brewers have acquired…”

And your point is?

there is no point, it’s just a fact.

not everything needs an undercurrent.

Then why isn’t there more coverage that said team has claimed the umpteenth Garcia or that said team has claimed their third Rodriguez in as many weeks? To me it was just a moot point about two guys that share the same common last name…
