Yuniesky Betancourt joins Brewers
Betancourt opted out of his contract with the Philadelphia Phillies on Sunday. He hit .447 in 18 games with the Phillies this spring with a .451 on-base percentage and .574 slugging percentage.
Betancourt, 31, was the Brewers' starting shortstop in 2011 before spending last season with Kansas City. Milwaukee has been looking for infield depth, particularly a veteran who could back up rookie shortstop Jean Segura.
