Hand clears waivers, stays with Brewers

Brewers right-hander Donovan Hand will get an opportunity in the coming weeks to win back the 40-man roster spot he lost last week.

The team announced Wednesday that Hand, designated for assignment last week when the Brewers re-signed free agent Francisco Rodriguez, had cleared waivers and been outrighted to the Triple-A Nashville roster. Hand will still be in Milwaukee’s big league camp, but as a non-roster invitee.

The 27-year-old Alabaman nearly won an Opening Day roster spot last year with a strong Spring Training and was ultimately promoted to the Majors in May. He posted a 3.69 ERA in 31 games, seven starts, and pitched to a 3.38 ERA in 10 games in September.
