[Update] Adam McCalvy is reporting that Zaun is close to signing with the Brewers.

[10:56] Gregg Zaun appeared on Toronto radio station 590 this morning.

On when he would sign with a new team: “Possibly by the end of the day.”

On why he couldn’t say who is signing with: “I’ve got to go pass a physical first.”

On whether his new team would be Milwaukee, Colorado, Tampa Bay or Seattle: “Yes, it is one of those teams.”

Our question is: Would the Rays require a physical to re-sign their own player? Maybe it is a league requirement for any free agent. We are not sure. If not, this suggests that Zaun is set to sign with a team other than the Rays by the end of the day. This leaves the Rays one step closer to John Jaso or Jose Lobaton as the backup catcher.

    Oh please Zaun.....sign with the Rays....I'll throw in $100 as will 20,000 other loyal fans if that means we don't have to watch Navarro for another year!

    Was wondering the same thing about the physical......didn't know if an arb agreement nullifies the need for one or not. I'm good with the comp pick though, and seeing Lobaton and Jaso duke it out in ST.
