One of the top remaining free agents remaining on the MLB market reached a deal with the Milwaukee Brewers on Sunday.
Mike Moustakas, who spent the second half of the season with Milwaukee after being traded to the Brewers from the Kansas City Royals, agreed to a one-year, $10 million dollar deal with the reigning NL Central champions.
Moustakas hit .251 with a total of 28 home runs and 95 RBIs in 152 games last season. He is regarded as one of the best third baseman in baseball.
The 30-year-old left-handed hitter, despite not putting up the strongest numbers with Milwaukee, convinced the Brewers´front office that he should return to man the hot corner for the Brewers due to his solid defense, offensive production, and his positive presence in the clubhouse.
The 2019 season will be the California native´s 9th in his MLB career. In addition to his above-average defense, the lefty third baseman has a capable power stroke, as he has totaled 66 home runs in his last two seasons.
Moustakas and the Brewers will look to repeat as NL Central champs this season.
