With the MLB offseason underway, the Milwaukee Brewers are free to sign free agents and make any trades with other teams. They’ve already made a couple of moves, but the bulk of the offseason has yet to go underway.
The Brewers are coming off four-straight playoff appearances and ended their 2021 campaign in a disappointing fashion. They’re looking to get over the hump this winter and they could reunite with these five players who would help them do so.
As the Milwaukee Brewers try to take the next step, these five players in free agency make sense for them to reunite with this offseason.
Players Brewers could reunite with in free agency: Nelson Cruz
Nelson Cruz played for the Brewers way back in 2005 when he only had seven plate appearances for the team. He was moved the next year as part of a mid-season trade involving All-Star Carlos Lee.
Even at 41-years-old, Cruz projects to be an above-average hitter with good power next season. Milwaukee desperately needs offense and Cruz could make sense if the NL adopts the designated hitter as expected. He would be a nice addition to the middle of a lineup that failed to consistently produce in 2021.
