1:33PM Keith Law says the Giants got prospects Darren Ford and Steve Hammond in exchange for two months of Durham.

Buster Olney's reporting the Brewers have acquired Ray Durham.  It's not yet known what they received in return, although according to the Milwaukee Sentinel, OF prospect Darren Ford was removed from his class-A Brevard County starting lineup yesterday "with indications he is being traded."  MLBTR covered movement on this yesterday.

Durham, a switch hitter, brings his bat to the Brewers bench and could take over Rickie Weeks' spot on the depth chart if Weeks continues to struggle in the second half.

Ray Durham To Brewers

This is a good pickup for the Crew. Veteran player, knows what it takes to make it to the playoffs. This puts pressure on Weeks to perform and hopefully he responds. If not, we could see a similar platoon at second like the team has implemented at third base. I'd also look for the Brewers to pursue help in the bullpen within the next few days.
