Brewers sign Jung Ho Kang


The Milwaukee Brewers have signed infielder Jung Ho Kang to a minor league contract.

Kang was released by the Pirates earlier this month. Before that he hit just .169/.222/.395 over 185 plate appearances. He doesn’t cost the Brewers anything and I suppose it’s possible he could have a hot few weeks to help them out down the stretch, but he hasn’t been a useful player since 2016, so I wouldn’t bet the farm on it.

But hey, when you have a chance to sign a high-character veteran presence like Kang, you don’t pass up that opportunity, right?

Oh, wait.
Oh, wait. And that investigation is still open, by the way.

Well, never mind then.

On Monday, the Brewers unveiled a familiar logo and new jerseys to help celebrate their 50th anniversary as a franchise. They kickstarted it with a video:

Then they showed various members of the club, including Ryan Braun and Keston Hiura, modeling their new uniforms, which featured the familiar ball-in-mitt logo.

The Brewers are not the only team to to back to a classic. The Padres are bringing back the brown as well. Two very good choices.
