FOX Sports’ Ken Rosenthal reports that the Padres have signed infielder Brooks Conrad to a minor league contract. The deal does not include an invite to major league spring training.

Conrad spent last season with the Hanshin Tigers of Japan’s Central League and hit just .175 (10-for-57) with zero homers over 24 games. He turns 34 later this month.

Conrad last appeared in the majors with the Brewers and Rays in 2012, but he’s best known for his time as a bench player with the Braves from 2009-2011. By the way, our resident Braves fan will never forget.

    With the exception of the blunder that you are eluding to, he was a great bench player with some clutch hits.

      It’s alluding

    Brooks also had several key hits during that season without which the Braves wouldn’t have made the playoffs to begin with. I’ve always liked Brooksie despite that, just as I like Chipper Jones despite the horrible error he made in his last game, that allowed the Cardinals to beat the Braves and continue on into the post-season.
