Pushing hard to win a first division title since 1982, the Brewers are collecting infielders like some collect baseball cards in the wake of Rickie Weeks' sprained ankle.

They added Jerry Hairston Jr. on Saturday, according to CBSSports.com sources, acquiring him from the Nationals for Erik Komatsu, a Double-A, 23-year-old outfielder.

The move came two days after the Brewers acquired infielder Felipe Lopez from Tampa Bay. Milwaukee also placed Weeks, their second baseman, on the disabled list on Thursday. Weeks could be sidelined for up to a month or six weeks.

Hairston Jr. is a versatile utilityman who can play both middle infield positions, third base and all three outfield positions. He was hitting .268 with four homers and 24 RBI in 75 games for the Nationals this season, and he was a key member of San Diego's surprising 90-win team in 2010.

Komatsu, a center fielder, was hitting .294 with a .393 on-base percentage and a .416 slugging percentage for Double-A Huntsville.

Brewers add depth, acquire Hairston Jr.

I've been a Brewer fan my whole life but Wow.....GM  Melvin is so garbage!!! He has to be in top 5 worst general managers in the league!  Instead of getting playing time to AAA Tyler Green or Mat Gamel, He has kept Craig Counsel batting .150 on the year with a whopping 4 rbi's on the 25 man roster.  He is 0-42.  Brew Crew fans like me will be disappointed for as long as Doug Melvin is Gm.
Yeah, let us forget about the boneheaded moves he has made, such as extended Braun twice, extending Yo, trading for CC, trading for Marcum, trading for Greinke.  He has made some legit dumb moves, but he has made some great ones that have the Brewers set up for the playoffs, which as a Brewer fans such as yourself would know that doesn't happen all that often.
