Brewers Sign Yuniesky Betancourt

The Brewers signed infielder Yuniesky Betancourt to a Major League deal, according to a press release from his agency.  He'd been the team's starting shortstop in 2011, and now he'll serve in a utility role.

Betancourt, 31, hit .228/.256/.400 in 228 plate appearances for the Royals last year, playing mostly second base.  He was on a minor league deal with the Phillies this spring, but opted out a few days ago.
