Brewers make roster moves

The Milwaukee Brewers today selected five players in the Rule 5 Draft at the Major League Baseball Winter Meetings in Las Vegas, Nevada. The Brewers also lost three players at the event.

Right-handed pitcher Eduardo Morlan was selected in the first round (16th overall) of the Major League phase of the draft off the Double-A Montgomery roster of the Tampa Bay Rays. Morlan went 4-2 with a 3.64 ERA and one save in 30 relief appearances with Montgomery last season. He was originally drafted by the Minnesota Twins in the third round of the 2004 June Draft.

Right-handed pitcher Mark Holliman was selected in the first round (pick 17) of the Triple-A phase off the Double-A Tennessee roster of the Chicago Cubs. Holliman went 4-5 with a 4.64 ERA in 31 games (18 starts) between Tennessee and Triple-A Iowa last season.

Second baseman Jonathan Ash was selected in the second round (pick 28) of the Triple-A phase off the Double-A Corpus Christi roster of the Houston Astros. Ash batted .240 with 11 RBI in 105 games between Corpus Christi and Triple-A Round Rock last season.

Infielder Shane Justis was selected in the third round (pick 34) of the Triple-A phase off the Double-A Jacksonville roster of the Los Angeles Dodgers. Justis batted .266 with 2 HR and 37 RBI in 117 games with Jacksonville last season.

They also signed Trot Nixon recently, but the site was going slow so I couldn't get to the link to post it.
