Brewers trade block summer 2017
The Brewers are in a hybrid state at this moment. I am not opposed to selling some major league pieces, but I am still looking to contend. With that being said, here is who I am looking to listen to offers on.
3B Santiago Mateo - .223/.304/.390, 9 HR, 35 RBI, 1.1 WAR
Mateo is a guy who has always underperformed his ratings, making me think that his final destination is a location outside of Milwaukee. He has excellent gap power, at 75, with his power, eye, and AvK coming in at 60, 55, and 50 respectively. Can be had for a decent return, but would most likely need a replacement in any prospective deal.
SP Chris Volstad - 4-9, 4.33 ERA, 7.0 K/9, 2.5 BB/9, 1.5 WAR, 3.94 FIP
Volstad is a pitcher with an expiring contract who has been a solid bottom of the rotation arm for us. However, he can moved to teams looking for a rental starter, as we desire to gain more long term stability at the position.
RP DJ Mitchell - 2-0, 2.81 ERA, 10.1 K/9, 3.4 BB/9, 143 ERA+, 0.2 WAR
Since joining the Brewers via waiver wire from the Royals in May, Mitchell has been an excellent arm in the pen for us. He is under contract for this season and next at a VERY affordable rate. Not exactly dying to move him, but offers can be made.
Others I would consider moving:
1B Jack MacNeill
RP Hong-Chih Kuo
C Justin O'Conner
SP Shelby Miller
SP Wily Peralta
CL Klaas Bongers
OF Jose Gonzalez
OF Esteban Hernandez
