Utility player Eric Sogard returns to Brewers as free agent after strong ‘19 season

For the second consecutive day, the Brewers signed a Rays free agent, and the face was quite familiar. According to Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic, Milwaukee agreed Wednesday with utility player Eric Sogard on a one-year deal with a club option for 2021 for a guaranteed $4.5 million.

The Brewers have not announced the deal.

It will be the second time around with the Brewers for the popular Sogard, 33, who played for them in 2017 and for a half-season in ‘18 before being released after falling into a deep slump. Sogard revived his career by signing a free-agent deal with Toronto and performing well there before being traded to Tampa Bay for the playoff push last season.

In 110 games for those teams, Sogard established career highs with a .290 batting average, 13 home runs, 40 runs batted in, .457 slugging percentage and .810 OPS. He saw most of his action at second base but also played shortstop, third base, left field and right field.

LEADING OFF: Mets-Nats back after wild game, Springer hurt

SHAKE IT OFF

The Mets and Nationals are set for a matinee in Washington after playing a wild one Tuesday night. The Mets scored five runs in the top of the ninth to lead 10-4 before the Nats rallied all the way back in the bottom of the inning, capping the rally with a three-run, game-ending homer from Kurt Suzuki. The Nationals/Expos franchise had never won a game after trailing by at least six runs in the ninth or later.

“That’s hard to do even in a Little League game,” said dejected Mets outfielder Brandon Nimmo.

Right-hander Zack Wheeler (9-7, 4.41 ERA), who is 0-2 with a 7.94 ERA in four starts against Washington this season, is set to start for New York. He’ll face righty Anibal Sanchez (8-6, 3.80).

So, the bullpens gave up a combined twelve runs in the ninth inning- and the solution is relying more on relievers?
