The Brewers added another veteran arm to the mix on Friday, signing 34-year-old lefty Pat Misch to a minor league contract with an invite to Spring Training.
Misch, who has pitched in 78 big league games over a span of six years, made his Major League debut with the San Francisco Giants in 2006. He pitched for the Giants from 2006-2009 before being claimed off waivers by the New York Mets in June of 2009. Misch pitched for the Mets from 2009-2011 but has not had a big league appearance since 2011.
He opened last season in the Miami Marlins organization and pitched in 16 games for Triple-A New Orleans, making 11 starts and going 5-7 with a 3.25 earned run average before being released in early July.
The Brewers also said goodbye to a familiar face, as reliever Rob Wooten agreed to a deal with the Atlanta Braves. The 30-year-old Wooten was a 13th round selection by Milwaukee in 2008 out of North Carolina.
He made his Major League debut with the Brewers in 2013 and appeared in 71 games out of the bullpen over the past three seasons, going 4-5 with a 5.03 ERA.
