On Saturday the Milwaukee Brewers officially added Mark Reynolds, Lyle Overbay and Zach Duke to their major league roster.
Reynolds and Overby will share time at first base for the Brewers this season. During spring play Reynolds hit.226/.328/.415 with a pair of homers and 11 RBI while Overbay hit .222/.364/.267 with two RBI and 16 strikeouts. Of the two Reynolds offers the bigger upside due to his power stroke.
Duke was signed this winter to a minor league deal. He was solid this spring posting a 3.38 ERA, 1.59 WHIP and 11/4 K/BB ratio in 10 2/3 innings this spring. He will operate in middle relief. Duke appeared in 26 games last season with Cincinnati posting a 6.03 ERA and a 1.56 WHIP.
