Brewers decline the $14.5 million option on 2B Rickie Weeks.

The declining option was not a particular surprise as his stat line was not indicative of a player who should be making $14.5 million a year. In 2014, he hit .274 with eight long balls, 29 RBIs, and three stolen bases.

Brewers exercised the $13 million option on RHP Yovani Gallardo.

Gallardo went 8-11 with 3.51 ERA for the Brewers in 2014. Gallardo no longer has really significant upside, but he is durable and a nice number three fantasy starter. During his eight year big league career, only one season ended where he had an ERA above 4.00.

Luis Jimenez has been claimed off waivers by the Brewers.

Jimenez is a 32 year old career minor leaguer, who can "boast" about his 18 plate appearances in 2012 with Seattle, where he put up a pitiful .059 batting average, with one hit and a walk.

The Brewers have re-signed RHP Manuel Barreda to a minor league contract for 2015.

Barreda was a 12th round selection in the 2007 draft by the New York Yankees. Now part of the Brewers organization, he will be hoping to get a call to the big leagues sometime very soon.

Ryan Braun (thumb) swung a bat Sunday and said it felt pretty good. He will take more swings later this week.

That is good news for Braun, but I'm worried about the status of his thumb around February and March, when fantasy drafts are going on, then in October when the season just ended.

Brewers have announced that manager Ron Roenicke will return in 2015.

Roenicke watched his first place Brewers collapse down the stretch and completely miss the playoffs. Given their success in the early part of the season it looks as if ownership will give him another chance to lead the Brewers to the playoffs.

Brewers announce C Matt Pagnozzi elected free agency.

Pagnozzi is hoping that someone will give him a shot as a big-league back-up catcher after he spent nearly all of last year in the minors. Even with a job in the majors, he won't provide you with enough to make him fantasy relevant.

Jeff Bianchi was outrighted to Triple-A Nashville. He declined the assignment and elected free agency.

It's doubtful that Bianchi lands anywhere that will give him a full-time gig, but he'd rather make a run at it anyway than just stay in his part-time utility role with the Brewers.

Ryan Braun (thumb) has been cleared to swing a bat.

Although he has been cleared to swing a bat, he doesn't expect to actually hit a baseball until closer to the end of the week. The thumb has bothered him since early in 2013, and their hopes remain that the surgery will fix that nerve issue. This past season Braun hit .266 with 19 home runs, 81 RBIs, and 11 stolen bases.

Brewers activate INF Jeff Bianchi from 60-day disabled list.

Just a procedural move as the Brewers tend to their 40-man roster in the offseason. Bianchi will likely fill a very similar utility role next season.
