Milwaukee Brewers GM Doug Melvin acknowledged having one conversation with the agent for Jose Reyes.

"One phone call," Melvin said. "No numbers."

It's likely that the Brewers will be more interested if they conclude free-agent first baseman Prince Fielder is departing.

Ryan Braun lobbied Reyes to join Milwaukee as far back as the All-Star Game.

Might there be more dialogue between Reyes' reps and Milwaukee?

"Haven't decided yet," Melvin said.
