MILWAUKEE -- The Milwaukee Brewers today acquired LHP Brian Shouse from the Texas Rangers in exchange for INF Enrique Cruz and a player to be named.

Shouse, 37, has spent four seasons with the Rangers, appearing in 62, 53 and 64 games, respectively, coming into this season. He has made all 221 of his Major League appearances out of the bullpen, pitching for Pittsburgh (1993), Boston (1998), Kansas City (2002) and Texas (2003-06).

Shouse went 3-2 with a 5.23 ERA in 64 appearances for the Rangers last season, holding left-handed batters to a .209 batting average (24-for-115). In his career, he has held left-handed batters to a .218 batting average (88-for-403).

Shouse has been on the Rangers' disabled list with a strained left calf. He has made seven rehab appearances between Triple-A Oklahoma (5 games) and Double-A Frisco (2 games), going 0-1 with a 3.86 ERA (7ip, 3er). He made six appearances with the Rangers prior to the injury (4.1ip, 2er).

To make room on the 40-man roster, the Brewers have transferred RHP Vince Perkins to the 60-day disabled list. A 25-man roster move will be announced when Shouse reports to Milwaukee.
