Brewers claim third baseman Cody Ransom

The Milwaukee Brewers have claimed 36-year-old
infielder
Cody Ransom off of waivers from the Arizona Diamondbacks.

The Diamondbacks designated Ransom for
assignment
on
Monday,
and replaced him with third baseman Josh Bell.

Bell, acquired by the Diamondbacks from the Orioles on
April
21, hit .381 with four home runs and 30 RBI in 26 games
for
Triple-A Reno.

In 248 games with five different major league teams,
including the Diamondbacks, Ransom has batted .226 with
nine home runs and 37 RBI.

Manager Kirk Gibson had expressed hope that Ransom would
be
back with the Diamondbacks later in the season to add
depth
at third base, before the Brewers claimed him Wednesday.

Ransom had hit .269 with four home runs and 13 RBI since
being called up by the Diamondbacks on April 18.
