The Milwaukee Brewers have claimed infielder Cody Ransom off waivers from the Arizona Diamondbacks according to Tom Haudricourt of the Journal Sentinel. The Brewers were looking for an upgrade at shortstop since they lost Alex Gonzalez due to a knee injury adds Haudricourt.
Ransom was hitting .269/.345/.577 with 4 HR's, 13 RBI's and a 145 OPS+ in 52 AB's with the Diamondbacks. That would be an improvement, at least offensively, for the Brewers' current shortstops Cesar Izturis, who is hitting .200/.235/.463 with a 27 OPS+ and Edwin Maysonet, who is hitting .143/.182/.286 with a 25 OPS+.
