Tony “Takitani” Plush?
A pair of players who played for the Brewers the past two seasons have found new homes for the 2013 season.
Outfielder Nyjer Morgan has agreed to a $1.6 million contract with the Yokohoma BayStars of Japan’s Central League, and right-hander Shaun Marcum reportedly has signed a one-year deal with the New York Mets.
Morgan, 32, had a big year for the Brewers in 2011, batting .304 over 119 games. Morgan also delivered one of the biggest hits in franchise history when he delivered a game-winning single in the 10th inning of Game 5 of the NLDS against Arizona, putting the Brewers in the NLCS against St. Louis. But he fell off badly in 2012, batting only .239 over 122 games and eventually losing playing time to Carlos Gomez in center field…
Marcum missed two months of the 2012 season with an ailing elbow and was limited to 21 starts, going 7-4 with a 3.70 ERA. The Brewers were concerned about his health going forward and opted not to offer him a contract for 2013, allowing him to go on the free agent market.
Marcum’s deal with the Mets is contingent upon passing a physical and was first reported by CBS Sports.com and FOX Sports.com.
for his generous support.
