The Milwaukee Brewers and veteran outfielder Jim Edmonds agreed to a minor league contract on Thursday. 

Edmonds was out of baseball a year ago and he’s trying to get back in.  The 39-year old is a 4-time all-star and 8-time gold glove award winner.  He’s a career .284 hitter with 382 home runs.  Edmonds hit .235 with 20 homers and 55 rbi’s in 111 games for the Padres and Cubs two years ago.

Brewers general manager Doug Melvin has been looking for outfield depth and for some left handed hitting.
