The Brewers could be interested in adding an infielder.

Milwaukee has been discussing a potential deal for Royals third baseman Mike Moustakas, according to a report from The Athletic. The Red Sox and Braves have also reportedly expressed interest in the 29-year-old.

Moustakas has registered a .249/.309/.468 slash line so far this season. He has also hit 20 home runs and tallied 62 RBIs.

Moustakas, a two-time All-Star, has spent all eight of his MLB seasons with the Royals. He won the World Series with Kansas City in 2015.

Milwaukee would move current starting third baseman Travis Shaw to second if they land Moustakas, according to a report from MLB Network. Shaw has recorded a .246 batting average with 19 home runs and 59 RBIs this season.

The Brewers acquired reliever Joakim Soria from the White Sox earlier this week.

Milwaukee is currently second in the National League Central with a 59-46 record. The Royals are well out of playoff contention at 31-71.
