Nationals claim INF Izturis from Brewers

The SportsXchange

The Washington Nationals claimed infielder Cesar Izturis from the Milwaukee Brewers, who allowed Izturis to depart via waivers rather than pull him back to initiate a trade.

Izturis, who has seen time at all four infield positions this season, was claimed by the Nationals who needed depth around the infield with shortstop Ian Desmond on the disabled list and Mark DeRosa (groin) day-to-day.

Izturis is in the final year of his contract and had a .235 batting average with Milwaukee.
