Brewers Trade For Graffanino

From John Sahly at MLB.com:

The Brewers announced a trade shortly before Tuesday's game. Pitcher Jorge De La Rosa has been traded to the Royals for infielder Tony Graffanino.

With infielders Corey Koskie and J.J. Hardy each on the disabled list, Hardy for the season, the Brewers were looking for an infielder to at the very least fill a role while Koskie remained on the shelf with post-traumatic concussion syndrome.

De La Rosa, currently on the disabled list, was 2-2 with an 8.60 ERA in 18 appearances for the Brewers this season.

Graffanino, who can play all four infield positions, was hitting .260 with five home runs and 32 RBIs for the Royals.
