Brewers Seek Middle Infielder

The Brewers are looking for a middle infielder,’s Buster Olney tweets. The club aims to add insurance behind starters Rickie Weeks and Alex Gonzalez.

Infielders Brooks Conrad and Cesar Izturis could crack the Opening Day roster if GM Doug Melvin doesn't complete a deal before then. Aaron Miles and Miguel Tejada are available in free agency, but they wouldn't necessarily represent an upgrade over the Brewers’ existing candidates.

Elliot Johnson, Chris Nelson, Eric Young Jr., Emmanuel Burriss, Luis Valbuena, Donnie Murphy, Robert Andino and Brent Lillibridge are out of options and could be available in trades later by the end of the month. The Phillies are also looking for infield help.
