Report: Brewers look to trim payroll for another addition, Wade Miley reunion possible

The Brewers may not be done adding this offseason, but may need to make other moves to make it happen When the Brewers decided to drop $18.25 million on Yasmani Grandal, the thought was that the signing pretty much finalized their roster heading into Spring Training about a month from today. That kind of investment combined with finalizing deals for their arbitration-eligible players figured to push the Brewers up to (or past) their publicly-stated budget of about $110 million. But it turns out David Stearns may not be done slinging just yet. In Ken Rosenthal’s latest for The Athletic...

Brewers officially announce Yasmani Grandal signing, deal includes mutual option for 2020

There’s a slight chance the Brewers’ latest free agent splash may not just be a one-year hired gun There was already plenty to like about the reported agreement between the Milwaukee Brewers and Yasmani Grandal, the top catcher and one of the top players overall on this year’s free agent market. Now that the signing is official, there’s this news: it may not necessarily be a one-year deal.

Manny Pina drawing trade interest, per report

It might make more sense for Milwaukee to hang on to him, though. The Milwaukee Brewers made a massive upgrade to their roster earlier this week when they reportedly inked catcher Yasmani Grandal to a one-year contract. Not that it’s a bad thing, but the added presence of the former All-Star has created a bit of a surplus behind the plate that the team will now have to figure out what to do with during Spring Training. Barring an unforeseen injury, as things stand right now David Stearns and company will have to decide whether to stick with Manny Pina or Erik Kratz as Grandal’s backup...
