According to Dan Walsh of SportsBubbler.com, Brewers first baseman/outfielder Brad Nelson has opted for free agency. At least four teams are in pursuit. Nelson had no hits and two walks in 23 plate appearances this year. He was outrighted to make room for Mat Gamel, and the Brewers also signed Frank Catalanotto recently.
Nelson, 26, hit .286/.380/.480 in Triple A last year.
