The Indians traded 1B/OF Jordan Brown to the Milwaukee Brewers for cash on Monday. The 27-year old leaves the Indians organization where in seven minor league seasons (594 games) he hit .305/.369/.471 with 159 2B, 15 3B, 62 HR, and a 214-316 walk to strikeout ratio in 2266 at bats. He made his major league debut last August and in 26 games in 2010 with the Indians hit .230/.272/.310 with 7 2B and 2 RBI.

With Brown's departure the Indians were able to clear a roster spot at Triple-A Columbus for infielder Josh Rodriguez who was recently returned by the Pirates (Rule 5).  Rodriguez is expected to play some left field and infield.
