Brewers, Morgan settle at $2.35 million
Brewers outfielder Nyjer Morgan will have to decide to split $2.35 million among his many alter egos after coming to terms with the team Monday on a one-year contract, avoiding arbitration. It’s a big raise for Morgan, who was arbitration-eligible for the first time after batting .304 in 119 games with Milwaukee in 2011.
With Morgan’s deal done, the Brewers remained in talks with four other arbitration-eligible players: relievers Francisco Rodriguez, Kameron Loe and Jose Veras and starter Shaun Marcum.
