The Brewers announced on Monday that reliever Steve Geltz has been claimed off waivers from the Rays, who designated Geltz for assignment on November 18. Outfielder Adam Walker was designated for assignment by the Brewers to create roster space for Geltz.
Geltz, 29, will be under team control through 2021. The right-hander has a career 4.23 ERA with a 99/43 K/BB ratio in 104 1/3 innings, almost entirely compiled in relief. He’ll compete for a spot in the Brewers’ bullpen when spring training begins in two and a half months.
