The Milwaukee Brewers were one of numerous teams who scouted right-hander Joel Hanrahan‘s showcase at the University of Tampa on Thursday.
Pro scout Cory Melvin, the son of Brewers general manager Doug Melvin, was on hand to watch Hanrahan, as he attempts to make his way back from Tommy John and flexor tendon surgeries.
Hanrahan, 32, saved 40 games in 2011 and 36 games in 2012 for the Pittsburgh Pirates before being traded to the Boston Red Sox. However, he only appeared in nine games for the Sox, before undergoing surgery.
The Brewers declined to say whether the club would make an offer to Hanrahan, but some reports said Hanrahan “looked great” during his workout.
