Brewers News And Notes


Claudio Vargas has resigned with the Milwaukee Brewers and will be working out of the pen.  Getting him back was a good idea and should help the bullpen out as it struggled at times. Vargas pitched well  for the Brewers and was able to get guys out in critical situations.

Kameron Loe a former Rangers pitcher will be invited and given a chance to compete for a job. Last year Loe was in Japan , but has pitched in the majors from 2004-2008 with the Rangers.  Never hurts to give him a shot and see what he can bring to the team.

The Brewers have signed Matt Treanor who is  33, He is a catcher and  a capable backup.  Played for the Florida Marlins from 2004-08 but was limited to nine games with the Tigers last season because of a right hip injury. In 278 Major League games, he is a .232 hitter with eight home runs and 70 RBIs. He will be invited to spring training to see what he can do.
