Monday’s signings leave 3 undecided roster spots for Brewers

With Monday’s signing of pitcher Randy Wolf and utility infielder Craig Counsell, Brewers’ GM Doug Melvin seems to only have three spots to fill to round out the 2010 25-man roster:

1. The last pitcher spot

2. A reserve infielder spot

3. A reserve outfielder spot

11 of 12 pitchers’ spots have been filled by Gallardo, Wolf, Parra, Suppan, Bush, Hoffman, Villanueva, Stetter, Riske, Coffey, and Lofgren. Presumably, the last spot is being reserved for Claudio Vargas.

But if Melvin achieves his goal of adding another starting pitcher–meaning that either Suppan or Bush would go to the bullpen–then one of the currently sloted pitchers would have to be traded, released, or sent to the minors. The easist solution would be to return Lofgren to Cleveland.

The last infielder spot will be up for grabs among Hernan Iribarren, Mat Gamel, and Adam Heether.

Finally, the Brewers need one more outfielder to replace Frank Catalanotto. This is the most intriguing vacancy, as it appears Lorenzo Cain isn’t ready yet. Who would you like to see in the outfield for the Crew?
