MINNEAPOLIS -- Outfielder Raimel Tapia has signed with the Milwaukee Brewers just a few days after the Boston Red Sox released him.

He played for the Colorado Rockies from 2016-21.

Tapia has a career .276 batting average, .318 on-base percentage, 27 homers and 198 RBIs in 606 games. He has 272 career starts in left field, 42 in right and 26 in center.
