Brewers, Coffey reach one-year deal
Right-hander one of six of Crew eligible for arbitration
LAS VEGAS -- The Brewers agreed to terms with reliever Todd Coffey on a one-year contract Monday, avoiding the arbitration process and kick-starting the team's week at the annual Winter Meetings.Coffey, 28 and a right-hander, was excellent after the Brewers claimed him off waivers on Sept. 10 to bolster the bullpen for the final three weeks of the regular season. He worked nine scoreless appearances -- spanning 7 1/3 innings -- and then traveled with the Brewers throughout the National League Division Series even though he wasn't eligible for the postseason roster.
