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.
