MLB Free Agents 2012: 5 Shortstops the Milwaukee Brewers Are Targeting

Last week, Milwaukee Brewers GM Doug Melvin officially kicked off the club's 2011-2012 offseason by declining now former shortstop Yuniesky Betancourt's 2012 club option.  And while the move was largely anticipated by Brewers fans to no end, Melvin must now probe the free-agent market for a replacement.

Betancourt, who amassed 13 HR, 68 RBI and a .252 BA last season, proved to be more of an inconvenience than a productive shortstop last season, and should be replaced in a timely fashion this winter.

Here are five free-agent shortstops Melvin and the Brewers will target this offseason.
