Brewers sign Julian Tavarez

Doug Melvin is apparently going to sign "veteran closer" Julian Tavarez to fill out the bullpen.

General manager Doug Melvin just told us that Tavarez worked out for the club here and will accompany the Brewers back to Milwaukee after the game today. If he passes a physical this evening -- which is considered a formality -- he will be activated for the game tomorrow against Atlanta.

Melvin is looking to add an experienced arm to the bullpen after the recent losses to injury of closer Eric Gagne and set-up man David Riske. The Brewers have had to call up three pitchers on this three-city swing to fill out the bullpen -- Mark DiFelice, Zach Jackson and Tim Dillard.

Wait until the "casual fans" find out that in addition to not being all that good... he's kinda a jerk, too!

So where is Luis Pena, again?
