ST. LOUIS – The Brewers have agreed to bring back left-handed veterans
A source told MLB.com on Wednesday that Gonzalez has agreed on a major league contract for more than a year, which will add $ 2 million for the remainder of this season and an additional $ 2 million in incentives. The club has not confirmed the deal, and Brewers president of baseball operations David Stearns declined to comment on a club spokesman, presumably because Gonzalez will have to pass a physical test before signing.
Gonzalez, 33, went down with 2.54 ERA to 3-0 in seven Brewers launches last September and October after Milwaukee had acquired him on trade from the Nationals. He was available for Triple A Scranton-Wilkes Barre in three starts following his release from a Yankees Minor League contract on Monday after a 2-2 draw with ERA 6.00. The biggest part of this damage occurred at its first damage game, when Gonzalez allowed eight runs in eight innings. During his last two attempts, he beat 1
The Brewers entered on Wednesday's series final in St. Louis with the worst ERA in the National League (5.34), including a league with the worst 5.74 ERA's appetizers They refused to prosecute Gonzalez after finding a free agency had left and instead started with three young starters. But 26-year-old Brandon Woodruff had a starting shot of 5.81 by five starts. The 24-year-old Corbin Burnes has been downgraded to minority's 11 by permission of 11 home runs in his first four Major League games, and Freddy Peralta sits on a 7.13-ERA on the injured list.
"We have really talented people here. Some guys have done well, others have not, "Stearns said after another young pitcher, Adrian Houser, lost Monday at Busch Stadium in Burnes. "I think we've seen flashlights from a bunch of guys who can join them here and do their part.
"Of course we need a more consistent pitching than before. And I think we will get it. "
Part of the impetus to Gonzalez's signing is the starter who can constantly eat innings. Brewers are today the only Dutch team to score less than five points on average per start and that is not intended (ie the opener).

After Expressing That Trust In his inward talent, Stearns said, "If we believe we can improve, we will treat them to each other Follow up case. " One and a half days later he had a contract with the new representatives of Gonzalez at CAA.  According to The Athletic, Gonzalez's incentives are based on a scoring system and not on the usual startups, apparitions, etc. that protect Gonzalez from the case in which the Brewers become creative. The report said he would be awarded two points Each appearance of three innings or more than pitcher and one point for all other appearances as pitcher and would earn $ 333,333 at 25, 30, 35 and 40 points and $ 333,334 at 45 and 50 points , for a total of $ 2 million.
It's not clear if Gonzalez believes the contract is under contract. If they return to New York on the weekend or come home against the Rockies, they'll join the Brewers. Chase Anderson, Woodruff and Zach Davies are currently starting the three games of the Mets series.
Gonzalez has not played since April 14, so he might need some time to start a Major League game.  Gonzalez has an ERA of 3.69 in 313 missions (307 starts) over 11 seasons in the majors. He has been a longlasting pitcher for many years and has made at least 31 starts eight times.
