News: Cotts has reached an agreement to sign with the Brewers, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Impact: Cotts posted a 4.32 ERA over 66.2 innings out of the Texas bullpen last season, but his peripherals were more impressive, and he recorded a 1.11 ERA in 2013. He'll likely work as a middle reliever for the Brewers.
