Here's the Brewers quote of the day from SportsTicker:
MILWAUKEE (Ticker) - The Milwaukee Brewers on Tuesday signed righthander Chuck Smith to a minor league contract and invited him to spring training.
Smith, 33, is hoping to rebound from "Tommy John" surgery that caused him to miss all but the first month of last season. He appeared in just four games for Class AAA Colorado Springs of the Pacific Coast League, a Colorado Rockies' affiliate, before suffering a torn flexor tendon and ulnar collateral ligament on April 28.
Smith pitched for the Florida Marlins in 2000 and 2001. He owns a career mark of 11-11 with a 3.84 ERA in 34 major league starts.
"Chuck Smith has experienced success in this league while with the Florida Marlins," Brewers general manager Doug Melvin said. "His work ethic and determination will allow him to compete for a spot on this year's club."
