Meet the New Guy: Brooks Conrad

Braves utility infielder Brooks Conrad re-joins the RoadRunners to shore up the MI spot, as he was a RoadRunner for two weeks in 2009 (Weeks 15-16, July 16th-28th, 2009). With both Chipper Jones and Martin Prado on the DL, Conrad has been playing at second base this week. Brooks Conrad provided the only offense Friday night with a solo home run in the Braves’ 1-0 win over the Dodgers. For one night, the Braves can forget about Chipper Jones’ torn ACL. However, don’t go running to the wire to add Conrad. Although he’ll get the majority of the starts at third base, he’s more of a defensive utility man than bat. (Rotoworld)
