Brewers sign reliever Schoeneweis to minor league deal

Left-hander Scott Schoeneweis has agreed to a minor league contract with the Milwaukee Brewrs and was invited to major league spring trainig. Schoeneweis would get an $800,000, one-year contract if added to the 40-man roster and would have the chance to earn $700,000 in performance bonuses.

The 36-year-old is 46-57 with a 4.97 ERA in his 11-year major league career, making 93 starts among 562 appearances. Schoeneweis has played for six major league teams and was 1-2 with a 7.13 ERA in 45 relief appearances with the Arizona Diamondbacks last season.

My Take

Hopefully Schoeneweis (whose name is quite hard to spell, by the way) will be able to provide something for the team, as it's always nice to have another veteran lefty. However, if he does make the club, lets hope he'll put up slightly better numbers than when he was in Arizona. That 7.13 ERA is just nasty.
