Bobby Crosby (thigh) will make his Cactus League debut Tuesday at third base.

Crosby's comeback attempt has been slowed this spring due to a left thigh strain, but he's finally ready to go. The 33-year-old hasn't played in the majors since 2010 when he batted just .220/.294/.298 with the Pirates and Diamondbacks, so he's unlikely to make a major impact.

Bobby Crosby is idle right now in Brewers camp as he attempts to recover from a left thigh strain.

"He still feels it when he tries to run," manager Ron Roenicke said Thursday morning. "We're hoping this doesn't go much longer." Crosby hasn't appeared in a major league game since the 2010 campaign and seems doubtful to make a meaningful impact for Milwaukee this season.

Bobby Crosby will get a look at first base this spring.

The Brewers are trying to line up options for the position with Corey Hart (knee) out for at least the first month and Mat Gamel (knee) now unavailable for the entire season. Crosby hasn't appeared in a major league game since 2010, when he batted just .220/.294/.298 in 70 games between the Pirates and D'Backs. He can be ignored in fantasy leagues this year no matter what his role is.

Brewers signed INF Bobby Crosby to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Crosby would make $800,000 if he is on the major league roster and could earn an additional $450,000 in incentives. The 33-year-old infielder hasn't played professionally since 2010 when he batted just .220/.294/.298 with one home run in 168 at-bats between the Pirates and Diamondbacks. With such a long layoff, he'll enter spring training as a longshot candidate.

Bobby Crosby plans to work out for teams in January.

The 32-year-old infielder is hoping to make a comeback after sitting out the past two seasons. Crosby owns a .236/.304/.372 career batting line in the major leagues.

According to Ben Nicholson-Smith of MLB Trade Rumors, three teams have expressed interest in free agent infielder Bobby Crosby.

Crosby was released by the Diamondbacks in late August of 2010 after batting just .220/.294/.298 with one home run in 168 at-bats between Pittsburgh and Arizona. MLBTR's source claims that one team is eyeing the 31-year-old "as a shortstop" and that the other two only want him for utility purposes. Our guess is that this "source" is actually Crosby's agent, because no MLB team is really going to use him for anything more than organizational depth. He'll likely have to settle for a minor league deal.

Diamondbacks released INF Bobby Crosby.

Not much of a surprise. Crosby was just a warm body in the Chris Snyder trade, anyway. The 30-year-old infielder has batted just .220/.294/.298 with one home run and 13 RBI in 168 at-bats between the Pirates and Diamondbacks this season.

Diamondbacks acquired infielder Bobby Crosby from the Pirates.

Crosby is earning $1 million this year and is a free agent at the end of the season. He had no value to Pittsburgh and won't play much in Arizona.

The D-backs are expected to receive D.J. Carrasco, Bobby Crosby and Ryan Church from the Pirates in the pending deal for Chris Snyder, according to's Steve Gilbert.

The Pirates will also receive an unidentified minor leaguer in the deal. This was mostly just a salary dump move for the D-backs, as Crosby and Church are of little use to them. Carrasco is a somewhat useful reliever, though. Snyder is due just under $1.5 million the rest of this season and $5.75 million in 2011, with a $6.75 million club option for 2012 that includes a $750,000 buyout. It's not clear yet how much money the D-backs will be sending to the Pirates in the deal.

Bobby Crosby (shoulder) has been cleared to return to action.

Crosby missed four games due to inflammation in the left shoulder, but was available on Friday. "There was a little soreness the past few days, but I'm ready to go," said Crosby. "It got banged up. I just needed a few days' rest." There's a possibility he'll start on Saturday.
