San Francisco Giants’ Darin Ruf tosses his bat as he draws a walk during the first inning of a baseball game against the Miami Marlins on April 19 in Miami.

ST. LOUIS — First baseman/outfielder Darin Ruf agreed to a one-year contract with the Milwaukee Brewers on Monday, two days after he elected free agency rather than accept an outright assignment to the minor leagues with the San Francisco Giants.

Milwaukee will pay $541,935, a prorated share of the $720,000 major league minimum, and the Giants are responsible for the rest of Ruf’s $3 million salary plus a $250,000 buyout of his contract’s 2024 team option.
