Brewers signed outfielder Chris Duffy to a minor league contract and invited him to spring training.
It may be too late after three straight off years, but Duffy will finally receive the change of scenery he needed. The 28-year-old got hurt again last season and wasn't particularly impressive in the minors when healthy, hitting .266/.336/.413 in 109 at-bats. As a quality defensive center fielder, a left-handed hitter and an excellent basestealer, he should have some value as a major league bench player. However, he'll probably have to go down to Triple-A and hit his way back.

Hit his way back to AA or go on a hissy fit and quit...

If he accepts his role as a bench guy, he'll be just fine. The only thing he couldn't do well was hit. The problem with him on the Bucs was the expectation that he would be a starter, and one needs to be able to hit in order to do that.
