Brosseau, 29, has played in the majors in five consecutive seasons. That includes 29 games for the Brewers this year. Acquired in a trade with the Rays over the 2021-22 offseason, Brosseau had a solid .255/.344/.418 showing over 69 contests in his first year as a Brewer. He and the club agreed to a $1.4MM salary for this season to avoid arbitration.
The right-handed hitter didn’t find the same level of success in a relatively brief look in 2023. He’d hit .205/.256/.397 through 78 trips to the plate. Milwaukee designated him for assignment during the first week of July and passed him through outright waivers a few days later.
Brosseau made two appearances for Triple-A Nashville after the outright. He’s apparently found an offer more to his liking in Japan, with the Brew Crew granting him his release to pursue it. He joins the Marines with a career .242/.313/.428 batting line in 647 major league plate appearances. The bulk of that production has come with the platoon advantage, as Brosseau carries a robust .265/.326/.464 mark against left-handed pitching.
