D-backs and Brewers talk
The D-backs and Brewers have had some trade discussions recently according to Brewers assistant GM Gord Ash.
Without naming particular players, Brewers assistant Ash told Milwaukee reporters there had been “conversations” between the Brewers and D-backs about potential matches.
“I think it speaks to what I talked about earlier, that because they are one of the few clubs that have available pieces, the asking price is way too high,” Ash said. “So they don’t have to make a deal yet.”
The Brewers are thought to be in the market for both starting pitching depth as well as a second baseman. Whether that means Milwaukee could be interested in Felipe Lopez or lefty Doug Davis is unknown.
