Reports: Brewers sign Avisaíl García to two-year deal

MILWAUKEE, Wis. (WSAW) The Brewers have reportedly come to terms with outfielder Avisaíl García on a two-year, $20 million deal. The deal has been reported by Fox Sports and MLB Network.

García, an eight-year veteran, spent 2019 with the Tampa Bay Rays, where he hit 20 home runs and helped Tampa Bay earn a wild card spot in the American League.

I guess I don't pay close enough attention to the AL but I was very surprised to see that Garcia hit .330 with the White Sox in 2017, finishing second in the league behind Jose Altuve.

The only people more surprised were those watching the White Sox in 2017. Garcia's White Sox averages (including a partial first season):

.244
.257
.245
.330
.236

Yeah, he's had a weird career ... 0 WAR for ages 21-25, 4.6 WAR at 26, 0.3 WAR at 27, 2.0 WAR at 28. Since he signed with the Brewers, I'm hoping he's the replacement-level version the next couple of years.

Shades of Norm Cash, whose 2nd-best batting average (the previous year) came in 75 points below his .361 in '61.

For one season, he was Avisteam Garcia.
