  1. Milwaukee sends: Max Flora 1B AAA Colton Hock RP AA Doug Sanchez SP A Tampa Bay sends: Michael Hicks CL MLB This deal may be a suprise to most since we aren't competing for anything this year but Hicks is only 25 and we believe can be a key piece to the back of our bullpen as we turn the corner to contending in the next few years. Flora was hard to give up but he is ultimately blocked at first base. Thank you to Tampa for the quick negotiations to get a deal done today.
  2. The brewers accept. We are hoping Arias can continue his success and help our bullpen gain some stability over the next few years. Thanks to the Rockies for the negotiations and understanding through the process.
  3. Milwaukee sends: Wily peralta MLB (retain remaining salary) New York sends: Joe Holler 3B AA Shane Springer P AAA Jorge Gonzalez 3B AAA peralta has been a solid pitcher for us this season but with some AAA pitchers ready to make their debut moving him was necessary. Bringing in a couple of 3B depth pieces and Springer who can contribute to the bullpen in the future was worth it.
  4. Brewers accept. Burnett was never going to remain the everyday starter but his poor performance to start the season made him an expendable piece. Hampton being able to play 2B is a big reason why this was a good swap for us.
  5. Brewers send: Matt Jenkins 3B MLB $3 million in cash Mariners send: Keegan Thompson P AAA Andrew Moritz OF AA Jenkins has been a decent player in his time with the Brewers but he is not the future. Keegan Thompson may not be a starter at the major league level but we see him being a contributor either way. Moritz is a depth OF piece with blinding speed that can help out our minor league teams at a minimum.
  6. Milwaukee sends Anthony Seigler C (A) Atlanta sends Bill weaver SS (A+) We have several good catching prospects with 2 making their debut this year. SS is a position of need and Weaver is a good defensive SS that we think can contribute in a few years.
  7. I accept The brewers bullpen is not where it needs to be and minerak could be a right handed specialist that could help right now.
  8. Mori is a good prospect but has struggled at AA and is blocked by several pitchers at the AAA level. Calhoun is a good defensive outfielder with a +zr this year and can help out lineup against right handed pitching
  9. I accept. Richardson is a good players but his path to the majors is pretty well blocked. Moran Has good upside and you can never have too many bullpen prospects.
  10. I accept. Getting Stevens to be a solid defensive backup that can help the major league team right now puts us in a good position for this year and for several years to come. Pearson is a good pitcher but with the depth of pitching we have in front of him he was an expendable piece. We look forward to how these pieces will help us win now and in the future.
  11. I accept Looking at the outfield situation at the AAA level have jackson would have been nice but we have a surplus of outfielders. Bringing in another catcher like Spanswick will help bring more pop to the lineup especially with trahan and colome expected to start the season in the majors.
  12. Milwaukee Brewers sends 3B Rosell Herrera ML Chicago Whitesox sends SS Ronnie Taylor AAA SP Kyle McCloskey R Glendale Herrera has been a good player over the past couple of seasons here in Milwaukee his future with the team after this season was up in the air. Being able to get McCloskey a young prospect with great upside on all 3 of his pitches was the kicker that put the deal over the top. Taylor is a good system player who may be able to make an impact with his legs in the bigs for the next couple of years as we rebuild. We wish Herrera and the Whitesox organization the best of luck next season.
  13. I accept For the Brewers this was about taking a chance on a young player to see how he develops over time. Colon was a decent player in AAA but there was not future for him in Milwaukee, which made this deal worth the risk.
  14. I accept This trade is a continuation of the rebuild I started when I got to the Brewers. Being able to get 4 quality you players, especially the young arms that can join the rest of the talent I have already brought in, for Miller whose stock was at an all time high was huge. I look foward to seeing these young players grow and help the Brewers become the next power house in the NL.
