Eric Hinske deciding between Braves and Brewers

0 Comments

Eric Hinske was hoping to land a two-year deal after playing for six different teams during the past five seasons, but instead Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports that he’s deciding between one-year offers from the Braves and Brewers.

Hinske fared well as a part-time player for the Braves this season, hitting .256/.338/.456 with 11 homers in 320 plate appearances while earning $1 million, and Bowman notes that “Atlanta’s offer is believed to be worth $1.5 million.”

No word yet on what Milwaukee is willing to pay, but the Brewers also view Hinske as a part-time player and he’s from Appleton, Wisconsin.
