Milwaukee has re-signed Alex Gonzalez to a one-year, $1.5 million contract, according to Ken Rosenthal of

Gonzalez was the Brewers’ starting shortstop last year before a torn ACL ended his season in May and Milwaukee later traded for prospect Jean Segura to become their long-term answer at the position.

That means Gonzalez returns in a backup role, but that’s probably for the best considering he’s a 36-year-old coming off major knee surgery. And if Segura struggles, the Brewers have a veteran fallback option.

    $1.5mil? Well, that’s almost what Svelte Delmon Young will make next year.
