Former Cincinnati Reds relief pitcher J.J. Hoover could end up back in the National League Central after signing a minor-league contract with the Milwaukee Brewers that includes an invitation to Major League camp, the team announced Wednesday.
The 30-year-old Hoover pitched for the Reds from 2012 to 2016 after they acquired him from the Atlanta Braves for Juan Francisco in April of 2012. He signed as a free agent with the Arizona Diamondbacks on Jan. 10, 2017, and signed as a free agent with the Brewers exactly one year later – on Jan. 10, 2018.
Hoover was 3-1 with a 3.92 ERA in 52 appearances last season for Arizona. In five seasons for the Reds, he was 16-19 with a 4.12 ERA in 236 relief appearances.
