Brewers starter Kyle Lohse dislocated his left pinkie last night after he smacked it into Jedd Gyorko as he was running to first base. I’m more squeamish than ten pig-tailed elementary school girls so as far as I’m concerned it should land him on the 60 day disabled list, but luckily for all involved I’m not on the Brewers’ medical staff:
Everything is going the Brewers’ way lately.
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.
