Brewers claim Elian Herrera
By Mark Saxon
The Milwaukee Brewers claimed Dodgers utility man Elian Herrera off waivers Monday.
Herrera, 28, played 67 games for the Dodgers in 2012, batting .251 and playing six different positions. He spent virtually the entire 2013 season at Triple-A Albuquerque, going 2-for-8 in his at-bats with the Dodgers.
The Dodgers now have 32 players on their 40-man roster. Ten of their players filed for free agency last week and they declined options on second baseman Mark Ellis and pitcher Chris Capuano.
They likely will be in the market for some bench players this winter, as Nick Punto and Skip Schumaker were among the players filing for free agency.
