The deal does not include a minor league invite. Carroll, 31, played exclusively at the Triple-A level with the Pirates last year and will serve as organizational depth for Toronto.

Brett Carroll has elected free agency.

Carroll, 30, has received just five at-bats in the majors over the last two years. He should be able to net a minor league invite with someone, though.

Nationals sent OF Brett Carroll outright to Triple-A Syracuse.

Carroll cleared waivers after being designated for assignment earlier this month. He has accepted the minor league assignment and will serve as depth for the outfield.

Nationals designated OF Brett Carroll for assignment.

He was cleared to make room for Rick Ankiel's return from the disabled list. Carroll, who made the Nats out of spring training, was 0-for-2 in five games with the club.

Nationals purchased the contract of OF Brett Carroll from Triple-A Syracuse.

Carroll snagged a roster spot, despite batting just .206 (13-for-63) this spring. He'll likely split at-bats with Roger Bernadina in center fielder initially, but could be the odd man out when Rick Ankiel (hamstring) is ready to come off the disabled list.

Brett Carroll tripled in three runs and walked twice Thursday against the Braves.

With Michael Morse set to go on the DL, the Nats could keep Carroll as a part-time outfielder. Unlike Rick Ankiel and Roger Bernadina, he's a right-handed hitter, so he could start in center field against lefties.

Nationals manager Davey Johnson singled out Brett Carroll and Rick Ankiel as two players he's been intrigued by this spring.

The Nationals are looking to build a more productive bench in 2012. "I'm impressed with Carroll, who has opened my eyes," Johnson said. "Ankiel has looked very good this spring with his adjustments.'' Both Carroll and Ankiel signed minor league contracts this offseason and are capable of playing all three outfield positions.

Nationals signed OF Brett Carroll to a minor league contract.

He'll likely receive an invite to spring training. Carroll, 28, appeared in two games with the Brewers this season and has a .203/.281/.322 career batting line over 322 major-league plate appearances. Look for him to function as organizational depth.

Red Sox signed OF Brett Carroll; assigned him to Triple-A Pawtucket.

Carroll used an out in his Brewers contract to become a free agent on Wednesday. Now 28 years old, he's a career .203/.281/.322 hitter in 322 major-league plate appearances.

Brett Carroll has elected to become a free agent.

Carrol was designated for assignment by the Brewers last week so that they could clear a 40-man roster spot for Jerry Hairston Jr. The 28-year-old outfielder should draw a minor league contract from somewhere.
Wed, Aug 3, 2011 04:27:00 PM

Brewers designated OF Brett Carroll for assignment.

Carroll was up for just over a week and received only three at-bats. He's being designated in order to clear a spot on the 25-man and 40-man rosters for the newly acquired Jerry Hairston. Carroll is likely to clear waivers and remain in the organization.

Brewers purchased the contract of OF Brett Carroll from Triple-A Nashville.

He'll replace the injured Carlos Gomez on the active roster. Carroll, 28, was batting .281/.356/.469 with 15 homers, 51 RBI and nine stolen bases in 381 plate appearances at the Triple-A level this season. Those are some pretty gaudy numbers for someone who has a .205 batting average over 319 plate appearances in the major leagues. In short, don't expect much.
Thu, Jul 21, 2011 02:14:00 PM

The Brewers are expected to call up Brett Carroll to replace Carlos Gomez (broken collarbone) on the active roster.

Gomez, who broke his left collarbone, is expected to be placed on the disabled list before Thursday's game. Carroll is batting .281/.356/.469 with 15 homers, 51 RBI and nine stolen bases over 93 games with Triple-A Nashville this season. The 28-year-old has an ugly .205 batting average over 319 plate appearances in the big leagues, so he's unlikely to be fantasy relevant.
Thu, Jul 21, 2011 08:28:00 AM

Brewers acquired OF Brett Carroll from the Royals for cash considerations.

Carroll went 0-for-15 with the Royals before being reassigned to minor league camp last week. The 28-year-old outfielder has a .205/.284/.325 batting line over 319 major league plate appearances, all with the Marlins. He'll likely function as organizational depth at the Triple-A level.
