The Milwaukee Brewers believe they have room for more than one Gold Glove center fielder in their outfield.

Milwaukee has finalized its $24 million, two-year contract with Jackie Bradley Jr., whose deal allows him to opt out after this season to become a free agent again.

Bradley joins an outfield that already includes 2019 Gold Glove center fielder Lorenzo Cain, 2018 NL MVP Christian Yelich and Avisaíl García.

Cain is dealing with a quadriceps injury that puts his availability for the start of the season in question.
