[February 18, 2019]    The Milwaukee Brewers have agreed to re-sign third baseman Mike Moustakas on a one-year contract worth around $10 million, according to multiple reports Sunday.


The deal reportedly includes a mutual option for 2020.

Moustakas, 30, was traded to Milwaukee in July in exchange for right-hander Jorge Lopez and outfielder Brett Phillips, after spending his first seven-plus years in the majors with the Kansas City Royals. He batted .256 with eight homers and 33 RBIs in 54 games with the Brewers, bringing his numbers for the season to a .251 average, 28 homers and 95 RBIs in 152 games.

In eight career seasons, Moustakas has a .251 average with 147 homers and 474 RBIs in 988 games, earning All-Star selections in 2015 and 2017. He has played in at least 136 games in six of the last seven seasons.

Moustakas was part of two Royals' teams that reached the World Series, including the title-winning team of 2015, and he helped the Brewers come within a game of the World Series last year.
