The Brewers have signed the 30-year-old Pérez and were assigning him to their Triple-A affiliate in Nashville, Tennessee.

Pérez batted .258 with 45 homers, 175 RBIs and 67 steals in his 572 games with Milwaukee from 2015-19.

He has played every position other than catcher during his major-league career.
