Brewers veteran reliever Rob Scahill has elected minor league free agency. His tenure in the big leagues was short lived and he came out of 2017 with not only a shaky 4.43 ERA, but also a 5.75 FIP across 22.1 innings.
Scahill was a 2016 waiver claim for the Brewers. He was designated for assignment in December of the same year, only to purchase his contract from Triple-A Colorado Springs the following May.
The 30-year old is in good company on the free market, joining now former Brewers Wily Peralta, Michael Blazek, Kirk Nieuwenhuis, and David Goforth.
