PHOENIX (AP) — Utilityman Brock Holt is guaranteed $3.25 million under his one-year contract with the Milwaukee Brewers. The deal includes a club option for 2021 and performance bonuses that could make it worth $8.25 million over two seasons.

Holt hit a career-high .297 last year with three homers and 31 RBIs while playing every position except pitcher, catcher and center field.
The Brewers lost their Cactus League opener 7-2 on Sunday.
