MILWAUKEE -- The Milwaukee Brewers today signed outfielder Gabe Kapler to a one-year contract. The announcement was made by Executive Vice President and General Manager Doug Melvin.

"Gabe brings versatility and athleticism to the outfield position," said Melvin. "He has always been a great teammate and possesses the determination to bounce back and become a valuable player to our club."

Kapler, 32, resumes his playing career after spending the 2007 season as the manager of the Greenville Drive, the Class-A affiliate of the Boston Red Sox. He has played nine Major League seasons with Detroit (1998-99), Texas (2000-02), Colorado (2002-03) and Boston (2003-06). He has a .270 career batting average with 64 home runs and 302 RBI in 850 games.

Kapler was a member of three playoff teams in Boston (2003-05), including the 2004 World Championship team.
