Brewers sign veteran backstop Zaun
Switch-hitter will move into role previously held by Kendall
MILWAUKEE -- Veteran catcher Gregg Zaun is heading into his 16th season in the Majors, but he didn't sign with the Brewers to be a backup.
Zaun is a Type B free agent and Tampa Bay offered him arbitration. Because he signed before Monday's deadline for players to accept or decline the offer, the Rays will receive a compensatory pick between the first and second rounds of next year's Draft.
