The championship window for the Milwaukee Brewers is wide open. As such, they could stand to sign an extra veteran outfielder on a Minor League deal in case there’s an injury to the four outfielders on the Major League roster. We’ve got four names that could make sense, and take a Minor League deal with a contending team.

The Milwaukee Brewers have six outfielders on their 40-man roster. Christian Yelich, Lorenzo Cain, Ryan Braun, and Ben Gamel are locks to open the season on the 25-man roster. However, the only depth options behind them are Tyrone Taylor and Troy Stokes. The Brewers may want to add a veteran option in case there’s an injury to one of their big four names. (Looking your way, Braun)

There are several veteran options still available on the market, and one of them could end up signing a Minor League deal with an invite to camp to secure a job for the 2019 season. The Milwaukee Brewers could find a fit with any one of the following names to provide an insurance policy for their starting outfield.
