The Milwaukee Brewers have signed infielder Jung Ho Kang to a minor league contract.

Kang was released by the Pirates earlier this month. Before that he hit just .169/.222/.395 over 185 plate appearances. He doesn’t cost the Brewers anything and I suppose it’s possible he could have a hot few weeks to help them out down the stretch, but he hasn’t been a useful player since 2016, so I wouldn’t bet the farm on it.

But hey, when you have a chance to sign a high-character veteran presence like Kang, you don’t pass up that opportunity, right?

Oh, wait.
Oh, wait. And that investigation is still open, by the way.

Well, never mind then.
