Wise DFA’d, Brewers Look At Blalock

UPDATE, 12-11-07 at 1:56pm: It’s official, Wise has been DFA’d.  If the Brewers aren’t able to trade him then he’ll hook on somewhere as a free agent.

FROM 12-10-07 at 10:20pm:

Tom Haudricourt has some quality stuff tonight, aside from the aforementioned return of Salomon.

  • 32 year-old reliever Matt Wise is looking like a non-tender candidate for Wednesday.  Eric Gagne took his uniform number.  Wise hasn’t been too bad while eating up relief innings the past few years.  He only made a million bucks in ’07.  The Brewers tended to use him in low-leverage situations in 2007.
  • Some other non-tender candidates are listed here.
  • Haudricourt is "starting to get some vibes" that the Brewers have their eye on Hank Blalock.  The 27 year-old third baseman hit .293/.358/.543 in limited duty this year.  He’s locked up affordably – $5.95MM in ’08 and a $6.2MM club option for ’09.  Would Dave Bush and a decent pitching prospect cut it?
