Milwaukee Brewers Sign Three Players

The Milwaukee Brewers have signed Jonathan Davis, Trevor Kelley and Jason Alexander each to minor-league contracts. With that, they also have invitations to participate in Spring Training with the major-league team.

Although none of these signings are the major ones that Milwaukee fans are hoping for, it is never a bad thing to add more depth to the roster. Two out of the three also have MLB experience.

Davis is the most notable of the bunch. The 29-year-old outfielder played in 64 games this season between the Toronto Blue Jays and New York Yankees. In them, he had one home run, four RBIs and a .126 batting average. Yes, there's no question he struggled at the plate, but during the 2020 season with Toronto, he had a .259 batting average in 13 games. He will be fighting for a platoon spot with the team. 

Kelley, a reliever, has pitched in 14 MLB games. In them, he has a 0-3 record, 9.26 ERA and 11 strikeouts. His last MLB appearance occurred during the 2020 campaign with the Philadelphia Phillies. With them that year, he pitched four games and had a 10.80 ERA. 

Jason Alexander, not to be confused with George Constanza's portrayer from Seinfeld, is a career minor-league pitcher looking to take that next step. In five appearances with the Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp of Triple-A, he had a 1-1 record and 1.84 ERA. If he keeps up that solid pitching, he could end up being a surprising addition to Milwaukee's roster.
