The Brewers sign Craig Counsell to a one-year deal

Ken Rosenthal reports that the Brewers have signed Craig Counsell.  That’s the sort of thing a team does when they realize that Yuniesky Betancourt is at the top of your depth chart at shortstop.

OK, not totally fair: the Brewers have been thinking about keeping Counsell in the fold for some time now.  He’s 40, but with Alcides Escobar gone, he may see more time than he saw as a utility player last year.
