Bobby Crosby's comeback attempt is on hold, as the Brewers have granted the infielder his release. Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports that the Brewers have released Crosby, who signed a minor league deal with the team in January (Twitter link). The TWC Sports client would have earned $800K at the MLB level plus $450K in incentives.
Crosby, 33, last played at the MLB level in 2010. The former AL Rookie of the Year has a .236/.304/.372 batting line over the course of eight big league seasons and has at least 20 games of experience at all four infield positions.
