Ken Rosenthal tweets that the Brewers are close to a deal with Mark Kotsay. It’s a major league deal, so they presumably have a job for him.
Kotsay tanked as the White Sox’ DH last year, posting a .239/.303/.376 line. He’ll be much more useful as a bench guy, pinch hitter, which is what he’ll do in Milwaukee.
I wish I had more to say about this, but it’s a transaction that speaks for itself. Between Egypt, the Super Bowl and all the bad weather, the world has decided that there shall be no interesting baseball news happening. Alas.
