Brewers claimed INF Luis Jimenez off waivers from the Angels.
The Angels tried to sneak him to the minors after removing him from the 40-man roster, but the Brewers scooped him up. Jimenez, 26, has hit only .234/.268/.291 in 151 plate appearances in the majors, but he sports a career .299/.335/.509 minor league line. He'll presumably battle for a bench job in spring training.
