Padres returned Rule 5 Draft pick INF Callix Crabbe to the Milwaukee Brewers.
Crabbe had been selected by San Diego in the Rule-5 draft in December, and he hit .176 in 28 at-bats for the Padres. With Abraham Nunez struggling in the minors, the Brewers probably wanted a better insurance policy if something happened to Rickie Weeks. Crabbe'll be sent to Triple-A Nashville.

Padres designated infielder Callix Crabbe for assignment.

Crabbe hit .176/.282/.206 in 34 at-bats for the Padres. The Brewers will have the option of taking the Rule-5 pick back if he clears waivers, but they might just give him to the Padres for a minor prospect. He's not part of their future plans, and they were pretty happy to see him get an opportunity elsewhere when he was selected in December.

Filling in for Tadahito Iguchi, Callix Crabbe went 0-for-4 with a walk and committed two errors on Thursday.

Crabbe's roster spot is very much in danger with Juan Castro available in Triple-A. The Rule-5 pick is hitting .176 with one extra-base hit in 34 at-bats.

Callix Crabbe went 3-for-4 on Thursday and is now hitting .364 this spring.

Crabbe's lack of versatility won't help his case for a roster spot, but he still might make the Padres on the basis of his strong perormance this month. Another possibility is that the Padres will trade for his rights. The Brewers made it clear they were happy to see him get an opportunity elsewhere when they lost him in December.

Padres selected second baseman Callix Crabbe from the Brewers in the second round of the Rule 5 draft.

Crabbe was the fourth and final position player chosen. Despite standing 5-foot-7 (if that), Crabbe has some pop in his bat, finishing at .287/.377/.435 in his first year at Triple-A. Unfortunately, he's not an asset anywhere other than second base and he's not a very good basestealer despite above average speed. We're rooting for him, but he's a long shot to have a career. He'll be in the mix to start at second base for the Padres if the team fails to add a veteran.

Callix Crabbe went 3-for-5 and hit his fifth and sixth homers Friday for Triple-A Nashville.

Our hopes of Crabbe ever seeing the light of the day in the majors seemed to be smashed when he hit just .267/.368/.345 in Double-A last year, but he's bounced back to bat .296/.376/.435 with 15 steals for Nashville this year. That he's not really an asset anywhere other than second base hurts his chances of making it as bench player, but the chances are pretty good that the 5-foot-7 switch-hitter will at least get a cup of coffee someday.
