Brewers Ink Infielder


The Brewers signed infielder Donnie Murphy to a Minor League contract Monday. The 29-year-old spent the last three years with the Marlins and is a .205 hitter over parts of seven Major League seasons, never appearing in more than 52 big league games in a season. He set that career high last year in Miami, where Murphy made 26 starts -- 17 at third base, eight at second base and one at shortstop.

He has appeared in more Major League games at shortstop (70) than any other position, making Murphy a candidate to back up 22-year-old Brewers starter Jean Segura. The other in-house candidate is Jeff Bianchi, who made his Major League debut for the Brewers last season over 33 games.

In the Minors, Murphy has played 345 games at second base, 255 at shortstop, 22 at third base and one in the outfield. He is a right-handed hitter.

Murphy is the seventh non-roster player added to the Brewers' big league Spring Training camp. The others are right-handers Jairo Asencio and Darren Byrd, left-hander Travis Webb, catcher Blake Lalli and infielder Hector Gomez.
