Irving Falu's season took another twist Thursday, when he was re-claimed by the Milwaukee Brewers off waivers. The infielder had been claimed from Milwaukee by the Padres on June 26, and after just 11 games with San Diego, he'll be headed back to the Brewers' Triple-A affiliate in Nashville.
Falu began his career in the Kansas City organization and spent a decade developing with the Royals before being released last November. He signed with the Brewers in December and played in 11 games for Milwaukee -- going 0-for-10 at the plate -- before being claimed off waivers by the Padres.
Falu played in 11 games for San Diego and batted .150 (3-for-20) before winding up back on waivers. The 31-year-old played second base exclusively for San Diego, but he's played at shortstop and third base for the Brewers this year. Falu, for his career, has batted .277 (33-for-119) in the Majors.
The native Puerto Rican has hit .306 in 43 games for Triple-A Nashville, Milwaukee's top affiliate, this season. Falu owns a .278 batting average (1,272-for-4,569) in the Minor League.
