Brewers trade right-handed pitcher Darren Byrd to Oakland


                MILWAUKEE - The Milwaukee Brewers have acquired third baseman Stephen Parker from the Oakland Athletics in exchange for right-handed pitcher Darren Byrd.

                Parker, 25, was selected by Oakland in the fifth round of the 2009 First-Year Player Draft out of Brigham Young University.  Over four minor-league seasons, he is a career .277 hitter with 43 HR and 262 RBI in 448 games.  His best season came in 2010, when he batted .296 with 21 HR and 98 RBI in 139 games at Class-A Stockton and was a midseason and postseason California League All-Star.

                Byrd, 26, spent three seasons in the Brewers' farm system (2010-12) after signing as a minor-league free agent on June 28, 2010.  He appeared in one game this spring before he was returned to minor-league camp on March 7.
