Report: Brewers sign Jim Edmonds

0 Comments

UPDATE: Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel confirms the signing.  See you in camp, Mr. Edmonds.

2:42 P.M.: Ken Rosenthal tweets that Milwaukee is about to sign Jim Edmonds to a minor league deal. Jimmy presumably wants to make the Cubs and Cardinals rue the day and all of that.

I have a hard time seeing Edmonds make a meaningful comeback at age 39 after a year off, but he hit .250/.362/.521 versus right-handers in 2008, so maybe he could fill a platoon role.
