Mets signed C Nevin Ashley to a minor league contract.

Ashley, 31, finally made it up to the majors briefly in 2015 with the Brewers after 10 years in pro ball. He's merely a depth add for the Mets.
Jan 15 - 4:20 PM

C Nevin Ashley has opted for free agency.

Ashley was designated for assignment on October 7 and passed through waivers. Rather than accepting an outright assignment to Triple-A Colorado Springs, he'll look for gainful employment elsewhere. The 31-year-old catcher picked up just two hits in 20 at-bats with the Brewers this season. He fared a bit better against inferior pitching, though, as he hit .306/.374/.442 with eight homers and 61 RBI over the course of 94 games at Triple-A.

Brewers designated C Nevin Ashley for assignment.

The move clears a spot for Junior Guerra on the 40-man roster. Ashley was a September call-up for the Brewers, but he was expendable.

Brewers purchased the contract of C Nevin Ashley from Triple-A Colorado Springs.

Ashley was hitting .306/.374/.442 with eight homers and 61 RBI over 337 Triple-A at-bats. He might see a few starts, but he's not a fantasy-relevant backstop.

Brewers signed C Nevin Ashley to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Ashley batted just .246/.332/.345 with two home runs and 24 RBI in 70 games last season for the Pirates' Triple-A affiliate in Indianapolis. The 30-year-old catcher will be organizational depth for the Brewers.

Pirates signed C Nevin Ashley to a minor league contract with an invite to spring training.

Ashley, 29, batted .235/.328/.374 with six home runs and 28 RBI over 80 games with the Reds' Triple-A affiliate this year. He figures to serve as minor league depth with Pittsburgh.

Reds signed C Nevin Ashley to a minor league contract.

He'll receive a spring training invite. Ashley, 28, has batted .260/.355/.384 over his minor league career and has yet to appear in a big league game.

Rays sent C Nevin Ashley outright to Triple-A Durham.

Ashley cleared waivers after being designated for assignment by the Rays last week. The 27-year-old backstop batted .263/.358/.384 with eight homers and 48 RBI last season between Double- and Triple-A. He'll serve as organizational depth in 2012.

Rays designated C Nevin Ashley for assignment.

The move was made in order to clear a spot on the 40-man roster for Luke Scott. A former sixth-round pick, Ashley batted .263/.358/.384 with eight homers and 48 RBI between Double- and Triple-A in 2011. He seems likely to clear waivers and remain in the organization.
