Joe Koshansky's time as a Ranger didn't last long. According to MLB.com's Adam McCalvy, the Brewers claimed the first baseman today and optioned him to Triple A Nashville. Tony Gwynn Jr. will join him there, as he cleared waivers.
Koshansky, 27 in May (just like me!), hit .300/.380/.600 at Triple A in '08, enjoying the friendly Security Service Field in Colorado Springs. His road line was .253/.340/.515. Greer Stadium, home of the Nashville Sounds, is much different.
Gwynn, 26, hit .275/.328/.331 in Triple A last year. Baseball America liked his defense back in their '07 Handbook.
