The Milwaukee Brewers announced the following roster move:

·        OF Michael Choice has been reinstated from the temporary inactive list and released; his contract has been sold to the Nexen Heroes in the KBO.

Choice, 27, was placed on the temporary inactive list on Wednesday. The Brewers sold Choice’s contract to the Nexen Heroes of the Korean Baseball Organization.

After being signed by the Brewers on May 5, Choice batted .272 for the Shuckers over 48 games with nine home runs, 13 doubles and 29 RBI. Choice became the second Biloxi Shucker to hit three home runs in a game on July 10 at Jacksonville and added another long ball the next night.

A first round pick by the Oakland Athletics (10th overall), Choice was traded to the Texas Rangers in 2013 after making his major league debut that season in Oakland. Choice hit nine home runs the following season as a rookie with the Rangers.
