Dillard inked a minor-league deal with the Brewers on Tuesday. Dillard finished 2017 at Triple-A Colorado Springs, accruing a 5.17 ERA over 62.2 innings pitched. The 34-year-old right-hander has struggled in recent years, posting an ERA over 5.00 in each of his last three seasons. Fortunately for Dillard, the Milwaukee bullpen was inconsistent last season, meaning there's a chance he could get called up at some point during next year.
Dillard signed a minor league deal with the Brewers on Monday. Probably better known for his comedic chops on viral videos than his ability to get hitters out, Dillard notched a 5.13 ERA and 53:17 K:BB in 47.1 innings at Triple-A Colorado Springs. He should offer organizational bullpen depth, likely returning to the Pacific Coast League at the outset of 2017.
Dillard gave up three earned runs on four hits and three walks in Triple-A Colorado Springs' 7-1 loss to Nashville on Monday. He struck out two in the outing. Dillard only pitched one inning in spring training and gave up an earned run on three hits. He hasn't pitched in the majors since 2012 when he pitched 37 innings and compiled a 4.38 ERA and 1.595 WHIP. He's coming off a poor 2015 season at Triple-A Colorado Springs where he posted a 5.50 ERA over 54 innings but given his previous experience in the majors, he could be a popular name for a call up if the Brewers have a roster spot to fill.
