Brooks Conrad has reached a basic contract agreement with the Hanshin Tigers of Nippon Professional Baseball.
The contract will be made official in December. Conrad hit just .133/.181/.306 with four homers and 15 RBI in 105 plate appearances this past season between the Brewers and Rays. He should have a better time in Japan.

Brooks Conrad launched a two-run homer in Tuesday's win over the Orioles.
Adam Jones gave the O's an early lead with a solo shot, but Conrad came back with a two-run blast in the fifth that put the Rays up for good. The utility player is batting just .192 in his time with the Rays but has at least gone deep a couple times.

Brooks Conrad drove in four runs with a pair of doubles as the Rays beat the Phillies 7-3 on Sunday to complete a doubleheader sweep.
It was Conrad's first multihit game since July 31. The Rays won tonight despite limiting themselves to relievers in the contest. Cesar Ramos started and pitched 2 2/3 scoreless innings. Wade Davis was the only pitcher to struggle, and after he left, Brandon Gomes and J.P. Howell combined to throw 3 2/3 scoreless innings.

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.
