Brewers | Yuniesky Betancourt contract update

Milwaukee Brewers SS Yuniesky Betancourt signed a one-year major league deal that will be worth up to $1.4 million, including incentives, Tuesday, March 26. 3B Donnie Murphy has been told that he won't make the roster as a result. "We signed a veteran guy (in Betancourt) who we have a lot of familiarity with," general manager Doug Melvin said. "Since we're going to have Alex (Gonzalez) play a lot of first base early in the season, Yuni gives us a guy who can play multiple infield positions. He did a really good job last year with Kansas City in that role." Betancourt could also chip in in the outfield to start the year.
