The Milwaukee Brewers finished the year with a disappointing record of 73-89, which was good for fourth place in the National League Central.
This team is usually contenders when it comes to the division crown, but have battled with some issues which included All-Star outfielder Ryan Braun. With Braun returning and Khris Davis moving to left field, their outfield will look to becoming one of the best outfielding corps. in the league.
All this team needs to do is make sure they bring in some players who can add depth. They may not make the Major League roster right away, but could come in handy after spending some time developing in the Minor Leagues.
Now according to Tom Haudricourt on Twitter, the Brewers have brought back a couple arms who could possible help them in the long run.
#Brewers announced they have re-signed pitchers Santo Manzanillo and Johnnie Lowe to minor-league deals. Manzo was once a top prospect.
