Brewers Make Signing

Chris Jakubauskus

The following tweet was found by renowned sleuth Jim Goulart (Follow Jim on Twitter @Mass_Haas):

I’m efforting contract details from Chris, at least what kind of deal was signed.

***UPDATE: Chris reached out via Twitter and confirmed his deal. It was shared by other media, so it is indeed a Minor League deal without an invite to Major League camp.***

Jakubauskas, 34 on December 22nd,  pitched exclusively in the minor leagues in 2012 at different levels of the Toronto organization along with a turn in Triple-A for the Diamondbacks. He last pitched in the majors in 2011 for the Baltimore Orioles.

He is a 6’2″ right-handed swingman type who has started games, finished games, and pitched in middle and long relief throughout his career. He primarily features a fastball/curveball combo on the mound though did throw a slider and change a little bit during 2011. Perhaps his time in the minors was spent refining one or both of those additional pitches. His fastball sits at or a tick of above 90 MPH, for what it’s worth.

Welcome to the organization, Chris!
