Cameron Might Take Discount To Stay In Milwaukee

Center fielder Mike Cameron "would be willing to make a sacrifice" to remain with the Brewers beyond this year, according to MLB.com's Adam McCalvy. (Hat tip to Aaron Gleeman, and check out his analysis as well).  McCalvy notes Cameron's $10MM salary and likely Type B status.  Gleeman writes of Cameron's continued defensive prowess, and says the center fielder is already a bargain at 10 mil.  FanGraphs agrees.

The free agent market does not have many legitimate starting center fielders.  Beyond Cameron, Marlon Byrd may be the best bet.  Coco Crisp is another decent possibility, should the Royals decline his $8MM option.  Rick Ankiel will be out there, though the Boras client has not impressed in his contract year.
