Brewers Sign Michael Olmsted

The Brewers have signed minor league free agent Michael Olmsted and placed him on the 40-man roster, reports Tom Haudricourt of The Journal Sentinel. The right-hander stands a robust 6-foot-7, 245 lbs.

Olmsted, 25, pitched to a 1.52 ERA with 14.0 K/9 and 2.3 BB/9 in 59 1/3 relief innings between Double-A and Triple-A in the Red Sox's system last year. MLB.com's Peter Gammons wrote about Olmsted's amazing story this past August, which includes Tommy John surgery, the death of his mother, and a stint in the Japanese minor leagues.
