Report: Brewers to sign Franklin Morales


The Brewers are expected to sign Franklin Morales to a minor-league contract in the next day or two. The team hasn't made an announcement yet, it's most likely pending a physical (per Adam McCalvy). While the results for Morales were good last year (3.18 ERA, 3.52 FIP), he's the definition of a LOOGY (3.70 FIP, .205/.288/.327 vs. left-handed batters; 5.19 FIP, .278/.371/.465 vs. right-handed batters). He has value as a LHP, but is probably just a minor-league depth option at this point.
