The Milwaukee Brewers have signed Corey Patterson to a minor league deal, according to Tom Haudricourt. The deal does not include a Spring Training invitation, yet.

Patterson, 32, enters his 13th season as a pro and has compiled a career line of . 252 / .290 / .400. He spent his first six seasons with the Chicago Cubs, before bouncing around the Baltimore Orioles, Cincinnati Reds, Washington Nationals, Toronto Blue Jays, and most recently the St. Louis Cardinals.

Patterson plays all three outfield positions and has been a slightly-above average player throughout his career, generating six wins above replacement, most or all of which were earned in two good seasons (2004/2006) with the Cubs. The remaining seasons of his career have largely been of detrimental value to his teams, with negatives in eight of his twelve seasons.
