MLB Free Agency Breaking News: Milwaukee Brewers to Sign SS Alex Gonzalez


After three brutal days at the 2011 MLB Winter Meetings in Dallas, Texas, the Milwaukee Brewers have finally found their shortstop for the future — or at least for next season, that is.

Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports tweeted just minutes ago on how the club has reached an agreement with the veteran shortstop Alex Gonzalez on a one-year deal with a vesting option for 2013.  The monetary figure is unclear, but we will continue to update you as information becomes available.

According to Rosenthal himself via Twitter:

“Alex Gonzalez deal with #Brewers is one year with a vesting option. #MLB

Last season, Gonzalez, 34, batted .241 with 15 home runs and 56 RBI in 149 games played with the Atlanta Braves.  The veteran infielder was considered to be a potential target for Milwaukee at the beginning of the offseason, when GM Doug Melvin began to contemplate the many options that could upgrade his infield from a season ago.
