A few minutes ago on Twitter, baseball agent Joshua Kusnick tweeted the following:
Kroenke to brewers

That would be his client, Zach Kroenke, a 28-year-old left-handed pitcher who has spent the last three years in the Diamondbacks’ system after being originally drafted by the Yankees back in 2005.
The numbers aren’t great, and his minor league stats seem to indicate that he’s much more suited to being a relief pitcher than a starter, though he did start every MiLB appearance he made in 2011 and more than half of his 2012 minor league appearances.
Kroenke is listed at 6’2″, 215 lb and is a six-year minor-league veteran.
I spoke with Kroenke on Twitter and confirmed that he signed a minor league deal without an invitation to big league Spring Training.
