The Milwaukee Brewers are in agreement on a deal with catcher Austin Nola. The deal will be a minor-league deal. Austin Nola, who is 34-years-old, has been in the MLB since 2019. He made his debut with the Seattle Mariners and spent his first two seasons with them, and the last four seasons Nola has spent with the San Diego Padres.
Austin Nola has mainly served as a backup the past few years. Last year, Nola was the backup to Gary Sánchez with the Padres. Austin Nola has played a total of 345 career games. For Nola's career, he is slashing .249/.326/.370, with 24 HR's, 136 RBI's, 51 doubles, 2 triples, .696 OPS, and a 5.1 WAR.
Austin Nola has been a solid backup catcher for many years. If Nola can prove himself in spring training, he could possibly serve as the backup to Brewers starting catcher, William Contreras. Austin Nola will have a lot to look forward to this spring, as he will be fighting for an opening day spot on the Brewers MLB roster.
