Brewers signed LHP Drew Smyly to a minor league contract.

The left-hander posted a miserable 8.42 ERA, 1.91 WHIP, and 52/34 K/BB ratio through 51 1/3 innings with the Rangers, but there's still talent here. It's a nice low-risk signing for the Brewers.

Some additional comments on the signing in the Minor League Transaction thread.

I feel like the signing should be worth it’s weight in gold in terms of pun possibilities, but I’m having a heck of time coming up with them.

No risk signing. Good move. Smyly has awful, but a minor lg. contract hurts nothing.

And if he can turn it around he'd be a nice addition without any real risk here.

See the Rangers also cut Shelby Miller loose, I wouldn't mind the same kind of deal for him.

I thought Miller was going to be stud.

There's no such thing as a bad minor league signing. Hopefully he does his best 2018 Wade Miley impression.

All I know is that I will be Smylying if he can return to his good numbers.

Miller has been as bad as you could get for the past 4 years. He hasn't thrown many innings the last two years, but what he threw was awful. I don't know if Stearns would even want to waste a spot at AAA with Miller.

Maybe he could rebound and take Anderson's spot. Anderson just allowed another HR, his 10th in only 58 IPs and the 9th time in 11 starts that he has been taken deep. After allowing 30 dingers last year, Anderson could easily be replaced.

you make it sound like Anderson had a bad 2018 and it having a bad 2019. simply not true. He's allowed homers, but luckily not much else

Hopefully he can lead us into battle like a Persian king and serve as a wrecking ball in the rotation. Our own Smyly Cyrus.

Miller's really baffling. It's not like he went from some flamethrower to a soft tossing finesse pitcher. He's throwing harder than he did in his best year with Atlanta.

Smyly's been worse this year. Kinda a race to the bottom, but if Smyly is a good signing because it's a minor league deal and no risk, how would Miller be different?

What a "If Only....."

Wade Miley is having a better year than last year, especially when you figure for the juiced ball and the DH.

I think our front office may have had a communication mix up when Stearns put out the memo to go get a "wily veteran"...

dontrelle willis and alfredo figaro are pleased that drew smyly sought his release from his minor league contract with san antonio. he is now a free agent.
