Former LSU Baseball player Austin Nola has signed a one-year deal with the Kansas City Royals after he was released by the Milwaukee Brewers this week. Per

Nola was on a Minor League deal with a non-roster invite to Spring Training with the Brewers, but with the Royals, he could win the backup catching role behind Salvador Perez.

Nola doesn’t bring much impact with his bat, especially following a year in which he slashed .146/.260/.192 in 52 games with the Padres, but he has a good reputation as a backstop, and would give the Royals another veteran voice to pair with Perez as they guide the pitching staff.

A fifth-round pick by the Marlins in the 2012 Draft out of Louisiana State, Nola has a career .696 OPS across five seasons, two with Seattle and four with San Diego. He helped the Padres to the National League Championship Series in 2022, when he played a career-high 110 regular season games.
