He won’t be eligible for the playoffs if Milwaukee gets there, but the Brewers have added some backup catching help for the final two weeks by acquiring Yorvit Torrealba from the Blue Jays for cash considerations.
Torrealba was released by the Rangers in early August after they traded for Geovany Soto to replace him as their No. 2 catcher and eventually agreed to a minor-league contract with the Blue Jays. He was called up on August 21 and played 10 games for Toronto, hitting .217 with a .588 OPS.
Torrealba will be a free agent after the season, so don’t expect the “cash” part of cash considerations to be a whole lot. He probably won’t get more than a handful of plate appearances for Milwaukee playing behind Jonathan Lucroy.
