Berry's contract was selected from Triple-A Colorado Springs on Tuesday. A 32-year-old journeyman with only 342 career plate appearances in the majors under his belt, Berry hit .286/.375/.452 with two home runs and two steals in 10 games with Colorado Springs. Berry is 27-for-28 on stolen-base attempts in his big-league career. He can play center field and serves as another left-handed option off the bench, but his primary usage may come as a pinch runner late in games. Jonathan Villar and Keon Broxton should still see the bulk of the work in center field over the final four weeks of the season.
Berry's contract was purchased by the Brewers on Friday. The outfielder will report to Triple-A Colorado Springs and serve as organizational depth for Milwaukee moving forward. Berry played in 14 games for Triple-A Rochester earlier this season while he was a member of the Twins, hitting .194/.275/.278 with two extra-base hits during 12 games. The 32-year-old hasn't played since being released by Minnesota on May 9, and is unlikely to see any action with the big-league club during the remainder of the season.
The Twins released Berry on Tuesday. The 32-year-old outfielder signed a minor-league contract with the Twins in February and opened the season with Triple-A Rochester, with whom he slashed .194/.275/.278 in 40 plate appearances. The speedy veteran last played in the majors in 2015 with the Cubs, but at this stage of his career, Berry looks to be little more than organizational depth. He'll presumably attempt to land a minor-league deal elsewhere.
Berry signed a minor league contract with the Twins on Friday, Chris Cotillo of SB Nation reports. It will be the fifth team in the last two years for Berry, who spent all of last season in Triple-A. The 32-year-old is a career .265 hitter, but possesses decent speed, swiping 35 bags in the minors last season. He's a long shot for a reserve role at this point.
Berry has been released by the Blue Jays, reports Tim Dierkes. The base-stealing specialist just signed a minor league pact with the Jays on August 31, potentially putting him in line for a reprise of his past role (with the Tigers and Red Sox) as postseason pinch-running depth. Berry appeared in just 31 MLB games in 2013-15 and he hasn't played in the bigs in 2016, spending much of the year with the Angels' Triple-A affiliate.
