Sources: Brewers are showing interest in second baseman Daniel Murphy

LAS​ VEGAS​ –​ Since​ the​ season​ ended, the​ Milwaukee Brewers​ have been​ searching​ for a second​ baseman.​ The​ team​ is​​ exploring options, both in free agency and possibly through a trade, but club officials stress that nothing appears imminent and financial constraints exist.

Sources tell The Athletic that the Brewers have expressed interest in free-agent second baseman Daniel Murphy, as well as retaining free-agent third baseman Mike Moustakas.

While Murphy was with the Washington Nationals in 2016, he finished second in the National League MVP voting. Last season, he slashed .299/.336/.454 in 91 games with the Nationals and Chicago Cubs, at times displaying the offense that landed him a lucrative free-agent contract in 2016. But concerns about his defense loom.
