PHOENIX (AP) Mike Moustakas fell one win shy of reaching the World Series with the Milwaukee Brewers.
"I think we had some unfinished business after last year," Moustakas said Tuesday after finalizing a $10 million, one-year deal with the Brewers. "I loved playing here last year. It was a lot of fun. We fell a little bit short, obviously, but I feel like this team can get back to where we were at last year and make a push for the World Series."
After Milwaukee won the NL Central for the first time since 2011, Brewers chairman Mark Attanasio and his front office have boosted payroll to a team-record of nearly $130 million. They added catcher Yasmani Grandal for an $18.25 million, one-year deal last month and then made the surprise move to keep Moustakas.
