• Brooks Conrad briefly visited Miller Park on Wednesday morning and said he was not sure whether he would accept an outright assignment to Triple-A Nashville, if that option arises. The Brewers designated him for assignment on Tuesday, and Conrad will remain on waivers until Thursday.

Conrad is hitting .405 at Nashville this season, but was 3-for-40 in two stints with the Brewers.

• Roenicke had a nice conversation Wednesday morning with his son, Lance, who followed an 0-for-4 professional debut with a 4-for-4 game on Tuesday with rookie-level Helena. The younger Roenicke was Milwaukee's 25th-round Draft pick.

• Baseball America's terrific First-Year Player Draft database shows the Brewers still have $248,400 left to spend before they reach their allotment for picks in the first 10 rounds, and two unsigned players: Hard-throwing University of Oklahoma right-hander Damien Magnifico, the team's fifth-round selection, and Puerto Rican prep outfielder Edgardo Rivera, an eighth-rounder.

Brewers amateur scouting director Bruce Seid spoke very highly of Magnifico after the Draft. That selection -- 185th overall -- called for a $209,900 bonus under guidelines set in baseball's new Collective Bargaining Agreement.
