The rumor mill is in full swing for the Milwaukee Brewers and GM Doug Melvin.
As we learned yestereday, the Brewers have been weighing their options heavily on a number of free-agent shortstops and third basemen.
Aramis Ramirez, Jose Reyes, Rafael Furcal, Clint Barmes and even Yuniesky Betancourt are all considered the most “likely” add-ons at this juncture, but nothing is set in stone and we’re guaranteed to see a few more names pop up with the GM meetings just under two weeks away.
Sports Illustrated’s Jon Heyman tweeted earlier today on how the Brewers have added free-agent shortstop Jimmy Rollins to their offseason wish-list.
Brewers add rollins to their ss list. Also eyeing reyes, furcal, yuni, barmes. hear they like reyes, good call if prince a no-go.
Rollins, 32, is coming off his 11th season with the Phillies, where he batted .268 with 16 HR and 63 RBI in 142 games played. He also stole 30 bases in 38 attempts.
