Five players signed: Jose Capellan, Mike Jones, Manny Parra, Drew Anderson & Hernan Iribarren. With those additions, there are now 22 players on the 40-man roster.

I don't know why the Brewers don't outright Mike Jones and get him off the 40-man. His story is a good one and I'd love to keep him in the organization, but he'll probably never make the Majors. His only real positive number last year was a good H/IP ratio, and even that was influenced by a low BABIP. He'll only be 24 this year, but he's had two shoulder surgeries; his days as a prospect are pretty much done. I'd like to pick Doug's brain on the thinking behind this one.
