Brewers sign steady Suppan

Brewers sign steady Suppan

The Milwaukee Brewers were among the last minute Christmas shoppers on Sunday, signing righthanded pitcher Jeff Suppan to a four-year deal worth US$42 million.
The contract is the richest in the history of the Brewers franchise, reported MLB.com. Suppan, who helped the St Louis Cardinals to the World Series in October, winning the National League Championship Series MVP honors, is scheduled to undergo a physical next week.
"We're jumping the gun a little bit, but we wanted to make an announcement before things leaked out," Brewers general manager Doug Melvin told MLB.com. "There was some momentum to this, so we kept going with it."
Suppan has been a work horse throughout his 12-year career, which included stints in Boston, Arizona, Kansas City, Pittsburgh and St Louis, making at least 31 regular-season starts in each of his last eight seasons.
He has compiled a record of 106-101 with a 4.60 ERA in 317 games.
