Brewers claim right-hander Estrada
The 26-year-old has pitched in parts of the last two seasons for Washington, going 0-1 with a 6.14 ERA in one start and three relief appearances last year. He was drafted by the Nationals in the sixth round in 2005.
Smith appeared in 35 games as a reliever last season, finishing without a decision and a 4.11 ERA. He will be invited to big league spring training as a non-roster player.
