Brewers waiver pickup: Richie Gardner

Looks like the Brewers quietly added a pitcher to their AAA roster, per the JS Blogs:

The Brewers, who have been looking for another starting pitcher for Class AAA Nashville, claimed right-hander Richie Gardner on waivers from Cincinnati and assigned him to the Sounds' roster.

Gardner, 26, was considered one of the top pitching prospects in the Reds' system before shoulder surgery set him back in 2005. Last season, he pitched at three levels in Cincy's system -- Class A Sarasota (5-1, 1.65 ERA in 7 games), Class AA Chattanooga (2-1, 1.82 in six games) and Class AAA Louisville (4-5, 5.71 in 13 games).

There aren't too many famous Richies out there.  Off the top of my head: Nicole, Lionel, Cunningham, Sexson, Sambora.  And Richie Rich, with his dog Dollar.  Already he has more talent than half of them.  Good luck, Gardner!
