In a series of roster moves, the Milwaukee Brewers have designated infielder Edwin Maysonet for assignment, reports Brewers Media Relations Director Mike Vassallo. The move was made in order to create a roster spot on the 25-man roster for infielder Cesar Izturis, who has been reinstated from the disabled list this afternoon.

Edwin Maysonet saw big league action for the first time since 2009, and played in 30 games with the Brewers before being designated for assignment by the team. The 30-year-old batted just .250/.297/.350 in 66 plate appearances with a few extra base hits. He wasn't on the team for that, though, instead it was his defense. Maysonet played third, second and shortstop with the Brewers.

Even with Izturis back, the Brewers still don't have a shortstop that can provide the team offensive production. The 32-year-old Izturis isn't known for offense, and is hitting just .216/.242/.261 on the year (91 plate appearances).
