Reuters Infielder Brett Lawrie, who didn’t play professional baseball the past two seasons, said Saturday that he has signed a contract with the Milwaukee Brewers.
Lawrie made the announcement on his Instagram account.
The Athletic reported that Lawrie signed a minor league deal with a club option for 2020.
Lawrie, 29, hasn’t played since the Chicago White Sox released him in March 2017.
“Life has been a little weird for me this past couple years,” Lawrie wrote in his Instagram post. “To be honest, it’s been lonely. I worked my whole life to achieve my dreams. I’ve shared a locker room with 25-plus men ever since I’ve been 19 years old & I blinked and it all disappeared.”
Lawrie has a .261 career average with 71 homers and 253 RBIs in six seasons with the Toronto Blue Jays (2011-14), Oakland Athletics (2015) and White Sox.
