Brooks Conrad 2B SD 3 Months
Padres signed INF Brooks Conrad to a minor league contract.
The deal does not include an invitation to spring training. The 33-year-old spent the 2013 season in Japan, slashing a meager .175/.319/.281 in 24 games. He'll function merely as organizational depth.

Rays claimed INF Brooks Conrad off waivers from the Brewers.
Conrad was designated for assignment by Milwaukee earlier this month after posting a rough .075/.136/.225 slash line in 44 plate appearances. He's doubtful to suddenly reach a high level of success in Tampa Bay.

Brewers designated INF Brooks Conrad for assignment.
With a hideous .075/.136/.225 line through 44 plate appearances, the 32-year-old was just taking up a spot on Milwaukee's bench better allocated elsewhere. Outside of a stretch in 2010 with the Braves, Conrad has never hit in the majors. He is also not a good defender. He'll draw no interest on waivers.
