(WNFL) - The Milwaukee Brewers may have found their new first baseman.  The team announced this morning that it signed veteran Mark Reynolds to a minor-league contract, with a good chance of making the Brewers' roster at Spring Training.  C-B-S Sports said the 30-year-old Reynolds will get two-million dollars -- and he could get another half-million in performance bonuses if he makes the Milwaukee roster.  The Brewers have been looking for a more solid first baseman ever since Corey Hart missed all of last season with injuries to both his knees.  A parade of possible replacements didn't pan out last season, although Juan Francisco remains on the Milwaukee roster -- and catcher Jonathan Lucroy showed some potential at first.  After the season, Hart left for Seattle -- still leaving the Brewers in need of a viable option at first.  Reynolds batted .220 with Cleveland and the New York Yankees last season with 21 homers and 67 R-B-I's.  Like Francisco, Reynolds has a tendency of providing either the "big hit" or a strikeout.  He set a Major League record by fanning 223 times with Arizona in 2009.  Reynolds also hit 44 homers that year with 102 R-B-I's.
