NL Central News: Rob Scahill elects free agency

Check out what’s going on in the National League Central.

MLB: Milwaukee Brewers at Philadelphia Phillies Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

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.
