John Axford Settling On One-Year Deal, For Now

It's no secret the Milwaukee Brewers and John Axford are working on a multi-year contact extension, but it may not get done at this very moment. Axford tells Tom Haudricourt of the Journal Sentinel he'll have to settle on a one-year deal for now, "but would very much like to do a multi-year extension."

Axford, who turns 29 in April, is still under team control through the 2016 season. The Brewers probably could get the righty locked up now for years and save money long-term, of course that's assuming Axford remains healthy as a reliever for years to come.

In addition to John Axford, general manager Doug Melvin, manager Ron Roenicke and starting pitcher Zack Greinke are among other extension candidates in Milwaukee.
