Brewers signed OF Eric Young Jr. to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.
The deal is worth $1 million if he makes the team and carries additional incentives. Young opened the 2015 campaign as the Braves' starting center fielder. It didn't go well. The 30-year-old managed to slash just .169/.229/.273 across 85 plate appearances. He was designated for assignment in early June, passed through waivers and was sent outright to Triple-A before finally being traded to the Mets on August 22. With the eventual NL champs, he served most as a pinch-runner, stealing three bases in 18 games. For his career, Young's notched six seasons with double-digit steals. He can play all three outfield spots and offers the Brewers some flexibility in addition to his speed. Tue, Dec 29, 2015 03:21:00 PM
