Justin Bopp of the SBNation.com site “MLB Daily Dish” is reporting that Yuniesky Betancourt is on his way to Maryvale to take a physical. That physical would be the last step necessary to finalize a reported MLB deal with the Milwaukee Brewers.
***Update: I reached out to a source and was told that the official deal is a minor-league deal with an MLB invite but since it’s so late in camp it’ll basically be a straight MLB (if it isn’t altered to simply be that when it’s signed) by the time it’s announced.
The confusion here could be on either side as spring training deals are sometimes confusing in their wording.***
Betancourt has filled a utility infielder role of late and was, for what it’s worth, absolutely raking this spring in Phillies camp.
Something to chew on. The Brewers are bringing back a familiar face…and favored hash tag.
