Brewers Claim Arcenio Leon

The Brewers announced that they claimed right-hander Arcenio Leon off of waivers from the Astros.

Leon spent the 2012 season pitching in relief for Houston's Double-A affiliate. The 26-year-old appeared in 44 games, posting a 4.38 ERA with 8.2 K/9 and 4.7 BB/9 in 63 2/3 innings. He has had trouble limiting walks in eight seasons as a professional, as his career rate of 5.2 BB/9 indicates.

Just what the Brewers need, another guy who has walk issues. Hopefully he stays in the Minors… Maybe some day he will learn some control.

Well, if the Brewers are looking for more good arms that can’t throw strikes, the Royals DFA-ed Jeremy Jeffress today.

Gonna guess we think we can fix this guy’s walk issues. Because we’ve had soooo much success fixing other people’s walk issues. I’ll give him this; he’s got a cool name. Hopefully this guy isn’t a part of our bullpen rebuild, unless he can really get his stuff together.
