George Kottaras wasn't without a team for long.

The Milwaukee Brewers have claimed the 26-year-old catcher, a day after he was placed on release waivers by the Red Sox.

The lefthanded-hiting Kottaras batted .237 with one homer and 10 RBIs in 45 games with the Red Sox last season. He had just eight plate-appearances after July 31, the day the Red Sox acquired Victor Martinez from the Indians.

He had been with the Red Sox organization since Sept. 5, 2006, when he was acquired from the Padres to complete a trade for lefthander David Wells.
