The Milwaukee Brewers have re-signed veteran shortstop Alex Gonzalez to a one-year, $1.5 million deal, according to Ken Rosenthal.

Gonzalez saw his season cut short for the Brewers last year after tearing his anterior cruciate ligament while sliding into second base in a game against the Giants in early May. He’s expected to backup Jean Segura, who was acquired from the Angels in the Zack Greinke deal.

Last season, Segura hit .264/.321/.331 in 44 games for the Brewers.

Gonzalez, who has played for the Marlins, Red Sox, Reds, Blue Jays and Braves over his 14 year career,  has posted a .259/.326/.457 slash line with 156 home runs.

This off-season has been a quiet one for the Brewers, who have signed reliever Mike Gonzalez, pitcher Tom Gorzelanny and infielder Donnie Murphy to free agent deals.
