The Brewers have re-signed catcher Tuffy Gosewisch, the team announced via Twitter. Gosewisch will return on a minor league contract that contains an invitation to Milwaukee’s Major League Spring Training camp.
Gosewisch joined the organization on a minors deal last winter and hit .205/.299/.308 over 134 plate appearances for Triple-A San Antonio. In all likelihood, Gosewisch will continue to serve in a similar veteran depth role this year, providing backup behind Omar Narvaez and Manny Pina on the big league roster.
The 36-year-old Gosewisch last played in the majors in 2017, appearing in 11 games with Seattle. Over 447 PA with the Diamondbacks and Mariners from 2013-17, Gosewisch has a .190/.228/.271 career slash line. After being released by the M’s after the 2017 campaign, Gosewisch spent the 2018 season with the Nationals’ Triple-A club.
