MILWAUKEE -- Milwaukee Brewers right-handed pitcher Josh Stinson has been claimed off waivers by Oakland.
Milwaukee tried to pass Stinson through waivers to open up a spot on the 40-man roster, but the gamble didn't pay off.
Right-hander Alfredo Figaro and catcher Blake Lalli both are competing for the final spots in the bullpen and on the bench, but neither are on the 40-man roster.
Stinson, 25, appeared in six games in September for the Brewers, posting a 0.96 ERA in 9 13 innings.
Claimed off waivers from the Mets last April, Stinson went 11-9 with a 3.16 ERA in 24 starts for Double-A Huntsville in 2012.
Stinson had a 1.50 ERA in 12 spring training innings and was sent to minor league camp March 23.

MILWAUKEE -- Brewers left-hander Chris Narveson is fully on board with the team's decision to move him to the bullpen instead of beginning the season in the team's starting rotation.

Adam Wainwright has not been generous to the Brewers over the years. Among current players with a fair number of at bats against Wainwright, only Aramis Ramirez (.404) and Corey Hart (.265) hit him respectably. Although I could not find Wainwright’s career numbers versus the Brewers overall (apparently I need to be a STATS LLC client for that) I was...
