Brewers designated INF Edwin Maysonet for assignment.

The Brewers needed to clear two spots on the 40-man roster after Friday's Zack Greinke trade, and Maysonet was one of the causalities. The 30-year-old hit .250/.297/.350 with one homer and four RBI in 30 games with the Brewers this season. Assuming he passes through waivers, he will continue to serve as organizational depth at Triple-A Nashville.

Brewers optioned INF Edwin Maysonet to Triple-A Nashville.

Maysonet has batted only .250/.297/.350 in 30 games for the Brewers this season. He has a good shot at getting another chance later this summer.

Brewers optioned INF Edwin Maysonet to Triple-A Nashville.

Maysonet has tallied just three hits in 21 at-bats this year in the major leagues. He's organizational depth.

Edwin Maysonet went 2-for-4 with a grand slam and a walk in Saturday's win over the Cubs.

The grand slam was set up when Cubs manager Dale Sveum decided to walk Travis Ishikawa intentionally to load the bases. It was just his second career home run. Maysonet made the start at second base on Saturday after Rickie Weeks was hit in the left wrist by a pitch during Friday's game. X-rays came back negative and Weeks is considered day-to-day, so Maysonet isn't worth owning in fantasy leagues.

Brewers purchased the contract of INF Edwin Maysonet from Triple-A Nashville.

Maysonet was batting just .214/.309/.286 in 99 plate appearances this season at the Triple-A level, but the Brewers need bodies in the wake of Alex Gonzalez's knee injury.
Sat, May 5, 2012 07:42:00 PM

Brewers reassigned INF Edwin Maysonet to minor league camp.

Maysonet, a non-roster invitee, batted .296 (8-for-27) with three doubles, four RBI and a stolen base this spring. The Brewers now have 27 players left in camp.
Sat, Mar 31, 2012 01:21:00 PM

Brewers re-signed Edwin Maysonet to a minor league contract.

He will also receive an invite to spring training. Maysonet, 30, batted .290/.347/.386 with three homers, 39 RBI and a .733 OPS over 436 plate appearances with Triple-A Nashville this season. The Brewers don't have much depth at the shortstop position, but it would be surprising if he actually makes the Opening Day roster.

Brewers signed INF Edwin Maysonet to a minor league contract.

Another big splash by the Brewers. Maysonet, 28, was designated for assignment by the Astros in September after batting batted .252/.312/.331 with two home runs and 36 RBI in 302 at-bats with Triple-A Round Rock in 2010. He's unlikely to make the Opening Day roster.

Astros designated INF Edwin Maysonet for assignment.

Maysonet, 28, batted .252/.312/.331 with two home runs and 36 RBI in 302 at-bats with Triple-A Round Rock this season. He is capable of playing all the infield positions, but he simply hasn't hit enough to justify having a spot on the 40-man roster.

The Astros will try to get Edwin Maysonet some action in the outfield this spring.

The 28 year old is hoping to make the team as a utility player despite a career .711 OPS in the minors. He can handle every infield position including being quite adept at shortstop, a position in flux for Houston. If he can put together a strong showing with the bat, a bench spot may be secured.

Astros recalled infielder Edwin Maysonet from Triple-A Round Rock.

This is Maysonet's third stint with the Astros this season and he takes Ivan Rodriguez's spot on the roster following Tuesday's trade with the Rangers.
Wed, Aug 19, 2009 09:11:00 AM

Astros optioned infielder Edwin Maysonet to Triple-A Round Rock.

Maysonet has hit .309 in 55 at-bats for the Astros this season, and should play more regularly in the minors for now. His departure makes room on the active roster for right-hander Bud Norris.
