One of the big mid-season acquisitions for the Brewers last season is reportedly coming back to play for them in 2019.
Multiple sources, including Ken Rosenthal of MLB on Fox, reporting the Brewers will sign third baseman Mike Moustakas to a one year deal.

The Brewers have not commented on the signing as of Sunday afternoon.
The Brewers signed Moustakas back on July 28, 2018 in a trade with the Kansas City Royals. In his 54 regular season games with the team he hit .256 with 8 home runs. He also provided the walk-off hit for the Brewers in Game One of the National League Divisional Series against the Rockies.
During his time in the offseason he has been helping fellow Brewers teammates Christian Yelich and Ryan Braun with the California Strong effort, raising money to help people impacted by the wildfires across the state in 2018, as well as the shooting at the Borderline Bar and Grill in Thousand Oaks.
