A shocking fall from grace for a 29 year old who hit 35 home runs and had a .899 OPS in 2006. Even more shocking since the Brewers are going to eat about $12 million in salary. If he were a few years younger he would definitely be of interest I imagine. But then again if he were a few years younger they wouldn't be designating him.
I'm sure somebody will take a shot. It will be interesting to see where he ends up.
In another move the Brew Crew also sent JJ Hardy to the minors (and fired their pitching coach). A big day in Milwaukee.
