Shane Nance is back--lefties galore!

Remember him? He went with Richie Sexson and Noochie to Arizona in the big trade a couple of years ago, and now he's back:

The 28-year-old Nance returns to the Brewers as a minor league free agent in 2006 after being traded from Milwaukee to Arizona in 2003 as part of the nine-player deal that sent Richie Sexson to the Diamondbacks. He spent the entire 2005 season at the Triple-A level, splitting the year between Tucson (AAA-D'Backs) and Omaha (AAA-Royals), and posted a combined 3-4 record, two saves, and a 5.16 ERA (34er/59.1ip) in 45 relief outings. Nance pitched for the Brewers in both the 2002 & 2003 seasons and carries a career 3.24 minor league ERA over 233 games during his six pro campaigns.
For those of you keeping score at home, that means SIX lefties with some degree of ML readiness: Nance, Zach Jackson, Chris Demaria, Jason Kershner, Justin Thompson, and Wil Rodriguez.
