Milwaukee will look for an experienced starter to bolster their rotation this winter.

The Milwaukee Brewers will go after an "experienced", second-tier starting pitcher on the free agent market this winter, reports Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel:

Melvin indeed will be looking for an experienced starting pitcher as well as some bullpen help…

They'll go for a second-tier pitcher, somebody like a Ryan Dempster, Edwin Jackson, Kyle Lohse, etc. They do want to plug an experienced starter behind Gallardo in the rotation.

The Brewers may also discuss A’s right-hander Brandon McCarthy, but Haudricourt emphasizes that with all the possible signings it will come down to not only affordability, but also whether the player is the right fit for the team.

With the club attempting to cut payroll, they are unlikely to try to bring Zack Greinke back, as his price tag as a free agent will be too high for the Brewers to take on. Even without Prince Fielder, Milwaukee’s payroll in 2012 was the highest in team history at $97.6 million.
