MILWAUKEE -- The Milwaukee Brewers signed catcher Wil Nieves to a one-year, $775,000 contract on Friday.

Nieves had spent the last three seasons with the Washington Nationals, who didn't sign the 33-year-old after he hit just .203 with three homers and 16 RBI in 59 games in 2010.

In 262 career games, the native of Puerto Rico has batted .227 with a .273 on- base percentage, five round-trippers and 73 RBI.

Milwaukee now has four catchers on its roster.
