The Texas Rangers announced Monday they sent minor league infielder/outfielder Ryan Cordell to the Milwaukee Brewers.
The move was done to complete the trade of Aug. 1 where Texas picked up pitcher Jeremy Jeffress and catcher Jonathan Lucroy for pitcher Luis Ortiz, outfielder Lewis Brinson and a player to be named later.
Cordell batted .264 with 19 homers and 70 RBI in 107 games for Double-A Frisco in 2016 while playing exclusively in the outfield. He has been sidelined since August 3 with a right high ankle sprain.
The latest news from around North Texas.
Texas’ 11th round pick in the 2013 MLB Draft, Cordell has also seen extensive time at shortstop in his four-year pro career. He was a non-roster invitee in Texas’ 2016 major league spring training camp.
