The Milwaukee Brewers have signed infielder Bobby Crosby to a minor league contract.

The Milwaukee Brewers have signed infielder Bobby Crosby to a minor league contract that includes an invitation to major league spring training, according to Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports.

Crosby's new contract with the Brewers will pay him $800,000 if he makes it to the majors and includes another $450,000 in incentives.

Crosby has been out of professional baseball since 2010. He spent that season with the Pittsburgh Pirates and Arizona Diamondbacks. The infielder hit .224/.301/.295 with 10 doubles and one home run over 168 at-bats with the Pirates, while collecting two hits, both doubles, over 12 at-bats with the Diamondbacks.

The Diamondbacks acquired Crosby from the Pirates along with D.J. Carrasco and Ryan Church in exchange for Pedro Ciriaco and Chris Snyder in July of 2010. Arizona went on to release him less than a month later.

Crosby was named American League Rookie of the Year in 2004 as a member of the Oakland Athletics. The 33-year-old has manned all four infield positions, and he hit .236/.304/.372 over parts of eight seasons at the major league level.
