The Milwaukee Brewers and free agent third baseman Mike Moustakas have reportedly agreed on a one year deal for $10 million, per multiple reports. The 30 year old Moustakas finished the 2019 season with the Brewers, after signing a one year deal with Kansas City late in the 2017-18 offseason.

With the addition of Moustakas, the Brewers give themselves a solid league-average third baseman who they should be able to rely upon as a they look to return to the postseason in 2019. The Brewers have been one of the more aggressive teams the past two offseasons in pursuing opportunities to add quality players in an effort to win-now, despite the perception that the Chicago Cubs were set up to be a dynasty. They are arguably the favorites at this point in the N.L. Central.

As for Moustakas, in retrospect, he obviously should have taken the qualifying offer that Kansas City made to him after the 2017 season, which would have guaranteed him for 2018 almost as much as he will have made for the past two seasons.
