According to SI.com, the Brewers and Jeff Weaver have agreed to a minor league deal. However, if he is not called up by June 1st, he can declare for free agency. Weaver pitched for the Mariners in 2007, going 7-13 with a 6.20 ERA. The Brewers have had interest in Weaver for awhile, and this signing, assuming he can make a successful comeback, could lead to a Dave Bush trade. He has been the subject of several trade over the past couple of weeks and if struggles tonight, they could ship him off to make room for Weaver. Weaves is 93-114 with a 4.72 ERA in nine major league seasons. His best year came in 2005 when he won 14 games for the Dodgers.
