Jody Gerut and the Brewers avoid arbitration


The Brewers avoided arbitration with Jody Gerut, who has agreed to a one year deal.  No dollars yet, but he made $1.775 million last year.

Gerut hit 296/.351/.494 in 328
at-bats for the Padres in 2008, but he struggled for both San Diego and
Milwaukee last year, finishing at .230/.279/.376. He finished strong while Corey Hart was recovering from
an appendectomy, but he didn’t play much before then.
