The Milwaukee Brewers are closing in on a deal to with free agent Mark Reynolds, according to

It is believed that Reynolds will be signed to a Minor League contract but is expected to make the team for the spring training camp.

Assistant general manager Gord Ash says their are still issues to be ironed out before a deal is reached. 

"I can't confirm it with you yet. We're working on it, but we're not quite there yet," Ash told on Thursday night.

30-year-old Reynolds batted a combined .220 in 2013 for the Indians and Yankees but hit 21 home runs and 67 runs in 135 games.

The first/third baseman was thought to be attracting interest from The Yankees, Nationals, Twins, Rangers and Orioles who has hit 202 runs in his big league career.

But his love of slugging has led to some pretty low averages and many strikeouts.

Reynolds set the major league record with 223 strikeouts in 2009 whilst at Arizona and has reached the 200 mark in two other seasons.

The Brewers will see Reynolds as a low risk deal on a minor league deal as it avoids filling a 40-man roster spot should his strikeout issues prove too difficult for GM Doug Melvin to look past.
