The Brewers have acquired OF Matt Long and LHP Jarret Martin from the Dodgers in exchange for C Shawn Zarraga.

Just a deal involving some minor leaguers here. Long is a 27-year old career minor-league player who likely won't rate a call-up, Martin has never gone past Double-A, nor has he seen much success at that level. Zarraga is a mid-level catching prospect with decent but not spectacular plate discipline. It's doubtful any of these guys will amount to anything but God bless the dynasty league that will see these three shnooks traded for Clayton Kershaw in some ridiculous August trade next year.

The Brewers have released RHP Kyle Heckathorn and Andy Moye.

Neither player has appeared in a major league game in their careers and struggled at their respective levels making them expendable in the Brewers organization.

Brewers have signed OF Ben Guez to a minor-league deal.

Guez is a career minor leaguer and he should be avoided in all fantasy formats.

The Brewers have released OF Jeremy Hermida.

The Brewers had signed Hermida to a minor league deal, but are actually being nice and letting him out of it as he's received an offer to play in Japan for significantly more money. Take care, Mr. Hermida. Enjoy the Far East.

If the Brewers don't trade one of their six starters this winter, Jimmy Nelson would probably start next season in the bullpen.

Nelson is the Brewers' top pitching prospect and he's already had his first cup of coffee in the big leagues. There is a ton of time between now and the start of spring training and anything could happen, so Nelson is still a strong bet to make Milwaukee's rotation even though there isn't a space at this time.

Jonathan Broxton is in line to start the season as the Brewers closer.

While Broxton may be penciled in for now, a million different things can happen between noa and the start of the regular season. Brandon Kintzler and even Jim Henderson could surprise people.

Following an All-Star campaign in 2013, Brewers shortstop Jean Segura had a down year in 2014. He struggled offensively, batting just .246 with a .289 on-base percentage, but manager Ron Roenicke is hopeful Segura will bounce back in 2015.

Jean Segura had to deal with the death of his son during the 2014 season and missed time to be with his family in the Dominican Republic. Owners would have to hope that he can come back stronger in 2015.

Brewers announce they have re-signed IF Hainley Statia to a minor league contract for 2015.

The 28-year old, switch-hitter has minimal power and almost no speed to go along with his fluctuating plate discipline. He's spent every season in the minors since 2006 with no call-ups and it doesn't look like one is coming anytime soon. He'll spend the upcoming season as organizational depth in the minors.

Brewers have signed RHP Wirfin Obispo to a minor league contract.

Obispo spent time in both Atlanta and Pittsburgh's minor league system last season. He will look to compete for a spot in the Brewers bullpen during spring training.
