MLB Winter Meetings: Brewers talk to Giants about Brett Pill

Monday will not be complete until the Brewers have discussed all of the first basemen.

We've already reported that the Brewers have talked to Corey Hart's agent today. They're also considered a contender to acquire Logan Morrison from the Marlins and either Ike Davis or Lucas Duda from the Mets. The fun doesn't end there, though:

The Brewers have also reached out to Giants GM Brian Sabean regarding San Francisco first baseman Brett Pill, according to Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle. Pill is 29 and a veteran of three MLB cups of coffee, having played 111 games and hit .233/.279/.404 in the majors with nine career home runs. He's been almost exclusively a first baseman in the minors, but has played 15 games in left field over the last two seasons.

Pill is a less established commodity than the other first baseman we've discussed today, but he is a career .301/.340/.511 hitter over the last four seasons in AAA. Because he's both older and less established than a guy like Logan Morrison or Ike Davis, odds are he's also likely to have a much lower trade price.
