Milwaukee Brewers Roster Report 2009-01-29

Milwaukee Brewers Roster Report 2009-01-29
The Brewers won 90 games last year, and their offseason has revolved around one major loss (C.C. Sabathia) and one major gain (Trevor Hoffman).

ARRIVALS: RHP Jorge Julio (free agent from Braves), LHP R.J. Swindle (free agent from Phillies), RHP Eduardo Morlan (Rule 5 selection from Rays), RHP Trevor Hoffman (free agent from Padres).

DEPARTURES: INF Joe Dillon (claimed off waivers by A's), RHP Salomon Torres (retired), 3B Russell Branyan (free agent, signed with Mariners), LHP CC Sabathia (free agent, signed with Yankees), RHP Derrick Turnbow (free agent, signed minor league deal with Rangers), OF Gabe Kapler (free agent, signed with Rays), RHP Guillermo Mota (free agent, signed with Dodgers).

FREE AGENTS: RHP Ben Sheets, 2B Ray Durham, RHP Eric Gagne, LHP Brian Shouse.

Sheets has been so injury-prone that he'll probably be allowed to leave.

ARBITRATION-ELIGIBLE: 1B Prince Fielder, RF Corey Hart, 2B Rickie Weeks.

Fielder is asking for $8 million in his first year of arbitration after hitting 114 home runs with 312 RBIs in his first three seasons in the majors. Hart also is in his first year of arbitration eligibility.


2B Rickie Weeks (left knee surgery in September 2008) is expected to be full-go by spring training.

RHP David Riske (right elbow surgery in September 2008) should be completely healthy by spring training.
