Milwaukee Brewers special assistant Dick Groch calls RPs John Axford, Mike Fiers, Jim Henderson and Brandon Kintzler the "K-Mart group," as the four players cost the team a combined $3,500 to bring into the organization. In 2009, Fiers, a 22nd round pick, received a $2,500 signing bonus, while Kintzler was purchased from St. Paul of the Independent League for $1,000. Axford and Henderson were signed after being released from other teams, and didn't cost the team anything. However, all four are expected to play meaningful roles in Milwaukee this season.
