Milwaukee Brewers Sign Former Top Prospect

He finally lands a contract.

After electing free agency back in October, Monte Harrison has finally signed a new contract as he and the Milwaukee Brewers have agreed to a minor-league contract with an invite to spring training.

Harrison returns to the Brewers, the same organization that drafted him in the second round of the 2014 MLB Draft.

Harrison was later traded to the Miami Marlins as part of the deal that sent Christian Yelich to the Brewers back in 2018. 

A former top prospect, Harrison spent all of last season with the Los Angeles Angels organization, slashing .236/.326/.389, with nine home runs, 40 RBIs and 28 stolen bases over 82 games for Triple-A Salt Lake.

For his three-year major league career, the twenty-seven-year-old has slashed .176/.253/.294, with two home runs, six RBIs, seven stolen bases, and 13 runs scored over 50 games between the Miami Marlins and Angels.

We'll see if the change of scenery can spark a rebound in the twenty eight-year-old's career.
