Bobby Crosby‘s comeback attempt with Milwaukee is over, as the Brewers released the former Rookie of the Year today.

Crosby, who hasn’t played in the majors since 2010, signed a minor-league deal in January that would have been worth $850,000 in guaranteed money and another $450,000 in incentives if he made the Opening Day roster.

Crosby is 33 years old now and has hit just .229 with a .633 OPS in 501 games as a major leaguer since 2006, including zero seasons with an OPS above .700. And he hit just .188 this spring.

    Looks like a future Royal if I’ve ever seen one.

    Still incredible to me that he won AL ROY in 2004. That three year stretch of Eric Hinske, Angel Berroa and Bobby Crosby winning the AL ROY was putrid.

      In fairness to Hinske, he did have a legitimately good year in 2002. While that turned out to be his career year, he has been good enough to draw a major league paycheck for 11 seasons and counting, picking up two rings along the way. That’s more than most 17th-round picks can say.
