Brewers outright Nyjer Morgan to minors and parting ways with Jose Veras
MILWAUKEE – The Milwaukee Brewers have outrighted outfielder Nyjer Morgan to Triple-A Nashville.
Morgan hit .304 while helping Milwaukee win the NL Central in 2011, but slumped to .239 this year and the Brewers failed to make the playoffs. He is a .280 career hitter over six seasons with Pittsburgh, Washington and Milwaukee.
Milwaukee also announced Thursday that right-hander Jose Veras declined his assignment to Nashville and decided to become a free agent. Veras was 5-4 with a save and a 3.63 ERA in 72 appearances for the Brewers this season.
