Zaun a Brewer

Right Field BleachersCorrespondent IDecember 5, 2009

Meet Greg Zaun.

He was a backup catcher until he was 33 (so Mike Rivera, he feels your pain)

He hits about 8 home runs a year and hits around .250. He struggled for awhile offensively in Toronto but came around last year for the Rays.

He catches about 24% of base stealers (Kendall was at 29%).

He recently signed with the Brewers for the low price of 1.9 Mil, with an option for 2011 at 2.25 Mil.

I think this was a very good move, but I disagree with Cory Provous who said it basically bumps Mike Rivera out of Milwaukee. I believe it gives Salome and Lucroy one more year in the minors and it gives Rivera one chance to take the starting role from Zaun.
