PHOENIX — It was just a day earlier that Brewers third baseman Travis Shaw said he’d welcome Mike Moustakas straight back into the Brewers with open armseven though it could cost Shaw his main position.

On Sunday afternoon, Shaw got his h.

A source told the Moustakas had consented to a yearlong contract to go back to the Brewers, pending a physical. MLB Network insider Ken Rosenthal was to report that the bargain, and USA TODAY reports that the bargain will make Moustakas $10 million. The deal has not been supported by the team.

Moustakas slashed .251/ / .315/ / .459 with 28 home runs and also a 9-5 RBIs last season between Milwaukee and Kansas City. The Brewers traded for him in late July and changed Shaw to base, then got hot down the stretch and won the National League Central. Moustakas hit .256 with eight home runs and 33 RBIs in 218 plate appearances for Milwaukee in the season. He went 8-for-40 (.200) in the postseason including a walkoff single in Game 1 of the National League Division Series, helping to send Milwaukee to a sweep of the Rockies.

“Obviously, he was a terrific addition for this team this past year in the second half after the [Trade Deadline],” said Christian Yelich, that spent much of the winter working together alongside Moustakas and to raise capital for ns affected by wild fires. “A wonderful player, a wonderful clubhouse guy, and that helped us on the area .”

Moustakas gives the Brewers an additional bat also means Shaw will shift back into second. Before Moustakas’ reunite, the Brewers were likely to platoon Cory Spangenberg at second using Hernan Perez or Tyler Saladino.
