1/11 Roster move

The Brewers claimed infielder Jeff Bianchi off waivers from the Cubs on Wednesday, which opens a spot on the 40-man roster for Paul Maholm, whom the Cubs signed on Tuesday. Bianchi was previously claimed by the Cubs from the Royals on Dec. 9. He batted .259 with two homers, 48 RBIs and 20 stolen bases in 119 games at Double-A Northwest Arkansas last season.  He missed 2010 after undergoing “Tommy John” surgery on his right elbow during Spring Training. Bianchi has spent his entire playing career in the Royals organization (2005-11).
