Attanasio on Aoki

by Patrick Newman (Jan 15, 2012)

Update: Brewers beat writer Tom Haudricourt has more.

Sponichi got Brewers owner Mark Attanasio on the record about Norichika Aoki on January 12. Here's what Attanasio had to say:

"It certainly wasn't a tryout. It was an opportunity for our GM and manager to directly see what type of player he is."

"Defensively he was terrific and he's a professional with an established track record, so he took it seriously."*

*Note: translation of a translation.

Sponichi expects the Brewers and Aoki to reach an agreement by the start of the week. The two sides have until the 17th to work out a deal.
