P Taylor Jungmann and SS Yadiel Rivera have been added to the 40-man roster.

A typical move done this time of year to protect players from being snatched by another team. Both players serve as depth within the Brewers' organization.

The Brewers have signed RHP John Ely to a minor league contract.

The thought is that he'll be invited to spring training. Ely spent the 2014 season as a reliever at Triple-A with the Red Sox, posting a 2.52 ERA with 35 strikeouts over 39 1/3 innings. There is a chance that he could make the team as a long reliever out of the bullpen.

Brewers announce signing of RHP Jaye Chapman to a minor league deal.

The right-handed reliever has toiled in the minors since 2006 but has spent the last four seasons at Triple-A. He's got some decent strikeout potential but has a clear issue with walks. If he can harness that problem in and improve his command, he's got the potential of landing a job in the Brewers bullpen, but he doesn't have any sort of legitimate fantasy value.

Brewers have acquired CF Kyle Wren from the Atlanta Braves in exchange for RHP Zach Quintana.

Wren is a Double-A outfielder whose game is base more on speed than power. He's solid defensively but still needs to improve his work on the basepaths. The plate discipline isn't bad, but he's going to need to learn to improve his walk rate if he wants to advance through the system and make it in the bigs. Quintana struggled with his command in Low-A ball last season and has just an average strikeout rate. It's difficult to imagine him advancing much further without a dramatic turnaround.

Brewers have re-signed INF Pete Orr and OF Jeremy Hermida to minor-league contracts with big-league spring training invites.

Orr has never been able to crack a major league lineup on a regular basis, but might have a shot given the fact that the Brewers second base job should be completely up for grabs. As for Hermida, his injury history alone keeps fantasy owners away and it is unlikely that he supplants anyone for even a platoon job, let alone a starting job.

Tim Dillard agreed to a minor league contract with the Brewers on Monday.

Dillard has appeared in 73 big league games, but he has spent the majority of his time in double-A. Dillard has no fantasy value at the beginning of the 2015 season.

Taylor Green agreed to a minor league contract with the Brewers on Monday.

For Triple-A Nashville this past season, he posted a .659 OPS but he isn't the star prospect he was tagged a few years ago. He will begin the year in the minors and has little to no fantasy relevance for the beginning of 2015.

Aramis Ramirez has accepted his half of the 2015 mutual option. The Brewers exercised the option last Friday.

Ramirez will be coming back to Milwaukee for the 2015 season. While he always find his way for at least one trip on the disabled list, he remains a good fantasy third baseman when healthy on the field. In 2014, he hit 15 home runs and 66 RBIs with a .285 average in 133 games played. Fantasy owners should keep in mind that Ramirez will be turning 37 in June of 2015.

The Milwaukee Brewers won't know for sure until Ryan Braun starts playing on at least a semiregular basis in spring training, but all parties are optimistic about the procedure he underwent after the 2014 season to treat a nagging thumb injury.

Braun's thumb injury was thought to be largely responsible for his struggles last season, as he batted .266/.324/.453. All of those numbers were the worst of his career. Braun could easily bounce back if the thumb injury is finally behind him, but he will be one of the riskier players come draft day.
