Milwaukee Brewers Sign Catcher

The Milwaukee Brewers have signed catcher Pedro Severino to a one-year, $1.9 million contract. The deal also comes with incentives and the 28-year-old can make another $400,000 from them.

Severino will likely be the new backup catcher for the Brewers for Omar Narvaez. Severino will also likely be their guy when the Brewers face a left-handed pitcher, as Narvaez struggles against them.

Severino is also coming off of a pretty decent year with the Baltimore Orioles. In 113 games, he had 11 home runs, 46 RBIs and a .248 batting average. Although it wasn't an All-Star campaign, he certainly had moments of being effective at the plate. Thus, this contract looks like a good one for the Brewers. 

Milwaukee needed a catcher, as Manny Pina recently signed with the Atlanta Braves. Overall, Severino isn't a bad replacement at all for them.
