Brewers Will Not Make an Offer to Fielder

It sounds like the Brewers are indeed moving on from negotiations with their former first baseman, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinal tweeted.

In fact, it also sounds like they’re not going to sign another first baseman either, as payroll is stretched beyond the max they had in mind.

This potentially puts former top prospect Mat Gamel in the mix at first. The 26-year-old has struggled in the majors but hit .310 with 28 home runs and 96 RBI for AAA Nashville last season.
