Brewers Bring Back Eric Sogard

(Milwaukee, WI)  —  Eric Sogard will spend at least one more year with the Milwaukee Brewers. The 31-year-old utility infielder decided not to test the free agent market, as he agreed Thursday to a two-point-four-million dollar contract for 2018 with 650-thousand more in incentives. Sogard started this season at Triple “A” Colorado Springs, but he won the Brewers second base job for a time after Jonathan Villar struggled. A foot injury slowed Sogard down in July, but he still hit .273 with a .393 on base percentage and he had just two errors in 80 games at second base and shortstop. Also Thursday, the Brewers announced the signing of starter Chase Anderson, who gets a two year deal with a club option for two more and starter Zach Davies is one of three finalists for a Gold Glove award among National League pitchers.
