Kealy signed a contract with the Hanwha Eagles of the KBO on Saturday, Sung Min Kim of The Athletic reports. Healy spent 2020 with the Brewers but was at the alternate training site for most of the season, appearing in four games and going 1-for-7. The 28-year-old has a career .261/.298/.450 slash line with 69 home runs in 405 games over five big-league seasons.
Healy elected free agency Monday. Healy will look for work with another organization this winter after he refused an outright assignment to Triple-A San Antonio upon clearing waivers a few days ago. The corner infielder appeared in four games with Milwaukee in 2020, logging seven at-bats.
Healy cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A San Antonio on Friday. The 28-year-old finished the season on Milwaukee's active roster, but it's not much of a surprise to see him cast off the 40-man roster after appearing in only four games all season. Healy figures to receive an invite to big-league spring training and attempt to reclaim a spot on the roster.
Healy was recalled from the alternate training site Friday. The 28-year-old had a brief stint on the active roster in early August but has otherwise been at the alternate training site all season. Healy went 1-for-6 during his brief action and had a .745 OPS in 2019.
Healy was optioned to the Brewers' alternate training site Thursday. He had played sparingly thus far, going 1-for-6 with two strikeouts and zero walks. Healy will continue to serve as corner infield depth over the rest of the season.
