    Milwaukee comes to terms with 29-year old right-hander Kameron Loe. Loe signed a one-year deal worth $1.25 million with $115,000 in performance bonuses.

    Another great move by Doug Melvin! Loe was a stud last season for the Brewers, posting a 1.18 WHIP with 22 holds to go along with a 2.78 ERA. Kameron will join an already stacked pen that showcases closer Jonathan Axford, veteran Takashi Saito, and relievers Zach Braddock, LaTroy Hawkins, and Manny Parra.

    The Brewers are still seeking to make ends meet with Rickie Weeks and Shaun Marcum.

    The Milwaukee Brewers and outfielder Mark Kotsay have agreed to a $800,000, one-year contract.

    Kotsay's deal includes $450,000 in roster and performance bonuses, and the Brewers will have to make a move on the 40-man roster to add him.

    In this instance, I'd say the Brewers are paying too much for too little. It's obvious Kotsay was signed as a mentor rather than an offensive force. Frankly, I can think of dozens of better uses for the cash. We are a young team, but a young team that doesn't lack in experience.

    Brewers avoid arbitration with SP Shaun Marcum. Reaching a one-year deal worth $3.95M. Very nice deal. Announced it on Twitter after hearing it from another source.

    The Brewers signed second baseman Rickie Weeks to a four-year, $38.5 million contract with a vesting option that can turn the contract to a franchise-record $50 million. If Weeks makes 600 plates appearances in 2014, or 1,200 plate appearances his final two years, the 2015 year will automatically vest for $11.5 million.

    Weeks can earn an additional $1 million if he makes 400 plate appearances in 2014, but his option does not vest.

    Milwaukee Brewers Braun content with contract

    Quote Originally Posted by MLBTradeRumors.com
    Early on in the 2008 season, the Brewers and Ryan Braun reached agreement on an eight-year, $45MM extension. In the past three years, the 27-year-old has more than lived up to his end of the pact, hitting .303/.363/.535. While some Brewers fans might worry that the outfielder will become unhappy with his contract that seems to favor the club, Braun has put those worries to rest, writes Adam McCalvy of MLB.com.
    Ryan Braun signed that extension in 2008 and it was one hell of a steal by the Brewers. What I really enjoy about this piece is the fact that Ryan Braun has no issue with his contract. I would also assume that he would become unhappy with his contract but that is not the case whatsoever.

    "I get it, but it's a non-issue," the three-time All-Star said. "I pay attention to what goes on around the game, obviously, but I'm happy for all of those guys. I agreed to a deal three years ago that goes five [more] years, and I'm excited and honored to be here." - Ryan Braun

    It'd be a dream come true to me if all players were like Braun when it comes to money. He is making over $5MM a season and to me for him to say what he has said in the above quote is quite astonishing based on the fact of what players of his caliber and even below his caliber demand. He my friends, is a true baseball player and has genuine love for the game. He will always be one of my favorite players, especially after seeing this. If you think i'm on the bandwagon you are wrong.

    Also, if any of you are ever in Milwaukee be sure to eat at his restaurant. Great food, great service and beautiful view from the deck.

    I trust he will singing the same tune even if the Brewers don't contend this year, which would be a real disappointment because I think everyone believes that they will.

    Milwaukee Brewers Brewers Acquire Morgan From Nationals

    Brewers Acquire Morgan From Nationals

    The Brewers have acquired speedy outfielder Nyjer Morgan in a trade with the Nationals.

    Washington will get minor league infielder Cutter Dykstra and cash from Milwaukee.

    Morgan stole 34 bases for the Nationals last season despite a .319 on-base percentage.

    Dykstra is the son of former major leaguer Lenny Dykstra.

    Not a bad pick up for the Brewers. Adds a little speed to their bench. Though I'm not sure Morgan is going to be able to break into that starting lineup with Hart, Gomez and Braun.
