The epic return of Chris Capuano... kind of.
With MLB Pipeline releasing their updated rankings, and Josh Hader receiving a surprisingly high grade, it's the perfect time for Brewers' Amateur Scouting Director to talk about the vastly improved farm system.
Will Smith ($1.475 million), Jean Segura and Wily Peralta have all agreed to one-year deals.
The Brewers and Will Smith have agreed to a one year deal worth $1.475 million, thereby avoiding arbitration. MLB Trade Rumors had projected him to make $1.2 million.
Dave Schoenfield says it was.
Catcher Josmil Pinto, the Brewers recent waiver claim, was subsequently DFA'd by the team to make way for 1B Chris Carter. This was the third time this offseason Pinto was put on waivers. Fortunately for Milwaukee he was not claimed this time and they will get to keep him in the organization. He will play for the AAA Sky Sox, presumably as their primary catcher though that's not been made official yet and a position change would not be surprising as his defense behind the plate has been poor. His bat has impressed though it's not suited for first base.
1 year deal
I know, big surprise. But it would have been nice if this article mentioned the improved farm system and the rebuilding under Stearns. It talks about how the A's and Phillies can be competitive in a few years but nothing of the sort for the Crew. Oh well...
SE no likey!
