Brewers To Sign Livan Hernandez

The Brewers agreed to sign right-hander Livan Hernandez, Jon Heyman of tweets. The Brewers could use help in the bullpen, and their rotation is thinning out now that Shaun Marcum could join starters Chris Narveson and Marco Estrada on the disabled list.

The Braves released Hernandez three days ago  after calling other teams about possible trade scenarios. Hernandez signed a Major League deal with the Braves in March, not long after the Astros released him. The Praver/Shapiro client posted a 4.94 ERA with 5.5 K/9 and 2.3 BB/9 in 31 innings out of the bullpen for Atlanta. 

Bill Hall broke the news on Twitter earlier this afternoon.
