The Devil Rays acquired infielder Brendan Harris from the Reds for a player to be named or cash.
Harris will probably make the team as their utility infielder, taking over the role that Tomas Perez held last year and Nick Green held the year before. Nothing is certain though. If B.J. Upton isn’t traded and has a good spring Upton could be the everyday 3B which would make Akinori Iwamura the teams utility infiedler. Harris has a legitimate shot at sticking with the club though.
Harris is best known as one of the players involved in the 2004 trade of Nomar Garciaparra to the Cubs.
Harris, 26, spent time with Nationals and Reds last season where he sported a .238 average in 25 Major League games. He has 110 career at-bats over parts of the last three seasons with the Cubs, Expos/Nationals, and Reds.
Harris was added to the Rays 40 man active roster as the 40th player.
