Brewers Sign Tommy Manzella

The Brewers have signed Tommy Manzella to a minor league contract, reports Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports (on Twitter). The move gives the club infield depth following Alex Gonzalez's season-ending torn ACL.

Manzella, 29, was the Astros' Opening Day shortstop in 2010. He hit just .225/.267/.264 in 282 plate appearances before spending last season in Triple-A. Houston designated the Sports One Athlete Management client for assignment last August. Manzella was claimed off waivers by the Diamondbacks before being removed from the 40-man roster in September.

Maysonet… Manzella… See they are taking a page out of the Astros’ book…

I figured the Brewers would man-up after Gonzalez’s injury, not manzella.

Boom. Division Champs.

It’s probably a better signing than Counsell un-retiring.

Kidding right.   This is throwing away money.  What scout suggested this?  FIRED.
