Brewers claim reliever Cesar Jimenez off waivers from Phillies

Left-hander Cesar Jimenez, who was designated for assignment by the Phillies, has been claimed off waivers by the Brewers.

Jimenez is a 30-year-old journeyman reliever, so it’s a low-wattage move, but Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com reports that the Brewers may be looking to trade setup man Neal Cotts and, if that happens, they could view Jimenez as a southpaw bullpen fill-in.

Jimenez has a 4.15 ERA in 85 career innings as a big leaguer and has also spent parts of 10 seasons (yes, 10 seasons) at Triple-A posting a 3.85 ERA.
