Patterson will not be with the big leaguers in Arizona beginning next month, though he did receive an invitation to an early minicamp at the club's Minor League complex.Patterson played very briefly for the Brewers in 2009, making the Brewers one of the seven teams for whom he's appeared in the Majors. In 1,230 games, Patterson is a .252 hitter with 118 home runs and 218 stolen bases.
The 32-year-old finished last season with the World Series champion Cardinals, but was left off their postseason roster.
