Downside To Each Team’s Biggest Free Agent Signing: National League

Milwaukee Brewers: Neal Cotts
Like the Reds, Milwaukee also had bullpen trouble in 2014 and looks to improve it as the new season is just around the corner.  But Cotts is actually a very different addition from Badenhop. While Badenhop is coming off a career year; Cotts is not. After posting a 1.11 ERA over 57.0 innings with Texas in 2013, he posted an ERA above four with the Rangers last summer. Both men are risks because the teams don’t know if they’ll get the good or the bad out of their new reliever, the clubs can only hope for the best. The Brewers bullpen was not as bad as Cincinnati’s last year but Milwaukee would still benefit greatly from an improved staff of relief pitchers.
