The infielder, who spent the past two seasons with the Phillies, will be added as a non-roster invitee to Brewers spring training.
From a Brewers press release - Nunez, 31, hit .234/.318/.282 with 16 RBI in 136 games last season. Most of his career was spent with Pittsburgh (1997 - 2004) and he was a member of the 2005 National League Champion Cardinals. He has played 293 games at third base, 261 games at shortstop and 258 games at second base in his Major League career. Nunez owns a career line of .242/.313/.314 and 62 OPS+.
Beerleaguer: Only a club with as many weapons as the Phillies could get away with starting Nunez 55 times at third base, as the Phils did last season. Witnessing perhaps the most one-dimensional semi-regular player in baseball for two seasons, the Phils bought out his option year and replaced him with Eric Bruntlett, part of the Brad Lidge package. A slick fielder who plays third, second and short, Nunez cannot hit the ball out of the infield and has the uncanny ability to murder a rally like no other. A minor league deal from the giant cartoon mit tells you all you need to know about how little a versatile gloveman like No-Hit Nuni is actually valued in the modern era of baseball.
