Lalli turned 30 in May and was a Brewer briefly earlier this season, going 3-for-24 with a couple of RBI in 16 games. He played five games at first base for the Brewers but was primarily a catcher in Nashville, where he batted .282/.334/.447 over 311 plate appearances. This was the eighth professional season for the former undrafted free agent.

It was pretty telling when the Brewers elected not to make Lalli a September callup to serve as a third catcher. If he clears waivers the Brewers can outright him to the minors or he can elect to become a free agent. Even if he accepts an outright assignment he'll be a minor league free agent after the season.

The Brewers' 40-man roster currently contains 46 players, with four on the 60-day DL and two more on the restricted list.
