The Milwaukee Brewers have signed free agent shortstop Alex Gonzalez, according to Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports:

Rosenthal adds that Gonzalez will receive a base salary of $1.5 million from the Brewers. The shortstop's contract also includes nearly $1 million in performance bonuses.

Prior to the Gonzalez signing, former top prospect Jean Segura - one of the players acquired from the Los Angeles Angels in the Zack Greinke trade - was the favorite to become Milwaukee's everyday player at short.
