MLB.com’s Adam McCalvy reports that the Padres have claimed infielder Irving Falu on waivers from the Brewers. Falu was hitless with a walk and an RBI in 12 plate appearances with the Brewers between May 26 and June 13.

Falu, 31, has only 107 plate appearances in the majors overall, but he can play second base, third base, and shortstop. In 170 PA with Triple-A Nashville this season, Falu slashed .306/.364/.361 with one home run, 10 RBI, and seven stolen bases.

    Padres got him off the Padres. Interesting.

      Reminds me of those deals where a team trades a player for a PTBNL, and after 6 months the PTBNL is the guy that got traded.

      Oops, thanks for catching that. Though you’d have to admit that would be a perfectly Padres move.

    From what I understand, the National Guard had to be called in to subdue the rioting and stampeding at the Padres ticket office.

    Just brutal…….

    Falu is a quality utility guy. He just never had quite the right opportunity with the Royals..

      And this statement is based on what? Not facts certainly. Falu is decent depth, on someones AAA team, and that’s it. He’s a better ball player than you or I, but is in no way deserving of a spot on any major league roster.

    He’ll probably be in the line-up tonight batting 3rd.
