Feb 3 - 1:37 PM

Brewers designated INF/OF Elian Herrera for assignment.

The move clears space on the 40-man roster for the addition of Neal Cotts. Herrera batted .274/.288/.341 over 140 plate appearances for the Brew Crew last season while making appearances at six different positions. The 30-year-old can't really hit, but he could draw some interest on waivers due to his versatility.
Jan 30 - 11:03 AM

Elian Herrera had a big day on Sunday, going 5-for-5 with three runs scored in a win over the Cardinals.

Filling in for Jean Segura, Herrera had as many hits Sunday as he had in his previous 24 at-bats spanning back to mid-June. The career day raised his batting average from .232 to .276. When Segura returns from the Dominican Republic, where he's tending to some family issues, Herrera will likely find himself back at Triple-A.

Brewers recalled INF/OF Elian Herrera from Triple-A Nashville.

Herrera spent most of May with the big league club, but was optioned out on June 3 when Aramis Ramirez returned from the disabled list. The utility man is hitting .226/.241/.264 on the season and is irrelevant in nearly all fantasy leagues.

Claimed off waivers from the Dodgers last November, Herrera hit .268 (11-for-41) with five extra-base hits (one home run) and seven RBI over 21 games this spring. The move clears the way for Jeff Bianchi to make the Opening Day roster as the backup shortstop.
Tue, Mar 25, 2014 12:25:00 PM

The versatile 28-year-old received just eight plate appearances in the major leagues this summer. But he hit .282 with a .737 OPS in 476 plate appearances at the Triple-A level and can play all over the field defensively. The switch-hitting Herrera will likely be in the running for an Opening Day roster spot next spring in Brewers camp.
