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.
