Diamondbacks claim Ransom off waivers

The Arizona Diamondbacks claimed infielder Cody Ransom off waivers from the Milwaukee Brewers on Friday.

Ransom started the season in the D-backs organization and had his contract selected on April 18 from Triple-A Reno. He was designated for assignment by Arizona on May 21 after hitting .269 with four home runs and 13 RBI in 17 games.

The 36-year-old was claimed off waivers by the Brewers on May 23. Ransom hit .196 with seven doubles, six homers and 26 RBI in 64 games for Milwaukee.

Ransom will report to the D-backs and be activated Saturday when rosters expand.
