The Milwaukee Brewers have signed catcher Humberto Quintero to a minor league deal, according to Jon Paul Morosi of FOX Sports.

While this isn't much more than a minor move in the present, the transaction will re-establish catching depth for the Brewers, who are close to trading catcher George Kottaras to the Oakland Athletics. Quintero will likely be assigned to Class Triple-A Nashville and virtually be the team's third catcher down there.

Acquired by the Kansas City Royals in the off-season, the 32-year-old Quintero hit .232/.257/.341 in 144 plate appearances over 43 games before being designated for assignment and ultimately released by the team in early July. He did make a stop with the Miami Marlins' minor league team, but cut ties with the team after just 5 games with their Triple-A club.
