Brewers Let Go Of Koskie
The Milwaukee Brewers let third-baseman Corey Koskie leave, declining his $6.5M option. He receives a $500,000 buyout in the process, but hasn't played baseball since '06 suffering from a concussion. He will most likely attempt a comeback in the spring if he's up to it, but will most likely have to be a mere bench player with another team. Twins reunion maybe?
Corey had a decent 2006 season though, batting .261 with 12HR 33RBI and a .341 OBP in 257 at-bats. He could be a very good pinch-hitter for an NL team, or maybe even become a starting DH with an OBP hungry team like the A's.
