The Brewers have reached an agreement with infielder Daniel Robertson on a one-year Major League deal, a source told MLB.com’s Mark Feinsand on Tuesday. Milwaukee has not confirmed the contract, which is pending a physical and reportedly worth $900,000, with up to an additional $400,000 in performance incentives.

Robertson, 26, appeared in 13 games last year for the Giants after the Rays designated him for assignment in August. The California native posted a .750 OPS and drove in two runs across those 13 games.

A former 34th overall selection by the A’s in the 2012 MLB Draft, Robertson was moved to Tampa Bay as part of the 2015 trade that sent Ben Zobrist to Oakland. His best Rays season came in ’18, when he recorded a 122 OPS+, hit nine homers and drove in 34 runs while manning five positions around the diamond across 87 games. After undergoing thumb surgery, Robertson struggled to a 66 OPS+ across 237 plate appearances for the ’19 Rays.

The Brewers figure to make Robertson a utility man thanks to his ability to play every position on the infield.
