Great Moments in Baseball Cards: Daniel Hudson edition

10 Comments

The Dbacks’ Daniel Hudson is not that impressed with his Topps Heritage baseball card this year:

I can see how that might bug him a bit. But really, it’s not like it’s a bad picture. Maybe I’m crazy but some of the (few) great pictures taken of me were taken under dubious/depressing/weird circumstances, so …

Eh, no. This is pretty bad. Dude blew is arm out.

Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports that the Brewers have signed free agent third baseman Mike Moustakas to a one-year contract, pending a physical. The deal is worth $10 million, per Bob Nightengale of USA TODAY Sports.

Moustakas, 30, was traded to the Brewers from the Royals ahead of the non-waiver trade deadline last season. Between both clubs, he hit .251/.315/.459 with 28 home runs and 95 RBI in 635 plate appearances.

Last March, Moustakas signed a one-year, $6.5 million deal with the Royals that included a $15 million mutual option for the 2019 season. The Brewers declined that option at the end of October and ended up waiting him out to save $5 million.

Travis Shaw had been in line to be the Brewers’ starting third baseman, but with Moustakas back in the mix, Shaw likely moves over to second base.
