Brewers sign Chris Colabello to minor league deal


The Brewers are signing journeyman 1B/OF Chris Colabello and assigning him to Triple-A. Colabello was released by the Indians earlier this month after hitting just .225/.323/.336 this year for Triple-A Columbus. Colabello's best big league season came in 2015, when he hit .321/.367/.520 with 15 home runs in 360 plate appearances with the Blue Jays. He was suspended for 80 games last year for a positive PED test and hit just .180/.248/.288 in 40 games after the suspension.
