He was drafted by the Houston Astros in the eighth round (236th pick) of the 2001 Draft[3]. Conrad played in the Houston Astros organization from 2001-2007 before becoming a minor league free agent after the 2007 season.

On July 3, 2009, Conrad hit his first major league home run - a 3-run shot as a pinch-hitter in the Braves 9-8 win over the Washington Nationals after being called up from AAA Gwinnett.[4]

On July 7, 2009, Conrad hit his first career Major League triple off of Chicago Cubs pitcher Carlos Zambrano.
