Brewers add left-hander Franklin Morales to bullpen mix


Ken Rosenthal of reports that the Brewers have agreed to a minor-league deal with left-hander Franklin Morales, who spent last season in the Royals’ bullpen.

Morales was very solid for Kansas City with a 3.18 ERA and 41/14 K/BB ratio in 62 innings and before that he had a decent three-season run with the Red Sox. He also spent parts of six seasons–spanning two different stints–with the Rockies, for whom he posted a 5.10 ERA.

Morales has bounced around plenty while working as both a starter and a reliever, but if used in a middle relief role he has a chance to be a significant part of the rebuilding Brewers’ bullpen.
