Brewers Claim Arcenio Leon


After placing Jose Veras on waivers Wednesday and outrighting outfielder Nyjer Morgan to triple-A Nashville Thursday, the Brewers made yet another roster transaction Friday when it was announced that the club claimed right-handed relief pitcher Arcenio Leon.

Signed by the Houston Astros as a non-draft pick free agent as an 18-year-old from Venezuela, Lion, 26, made 44 appearances out of the bullpen as a member of Houston’s double-A affiliate in 2012. He went 3-2 with a 4.38 ERA and 1.46 WHIP, striking out 58 while walking 33 over 63.2 total innings.
