Brewers sign JJ Hoover to a minor league deal

1 Comment

The Milwaukee Brewers have signed reliever JJ Hoover to a minor league deal with an invitation to spring training.

Hoover was non-tendered by the Diamondbacks last month after a year in which he posted a 3.92 ERA and a 54/26 K/BB ratio over 41.1 innings. That wasn’t terrible, but it wasn’t good enough for the Dbacks to want to go to arbitration with him. He was a train wreck with the Reds in 2016, so what the Brewers will get out of him next year is anyone’s guess.
