Milwaukee Brewers Untapped: Mets, Tigers and Jonathan Lucroy


There are several teams interested in trading for Milwaukee Brewers Jonathan Lucroy, including the New York Mets and Detroit Tigers. There’s a week until the August 1 trade deadline, as teams are looking to make last minute moves.

The Mets reportedly offered a straight catcher for catcher trade to the Milwaukee Brewers. Reportedly, the Milwaukee Brewers turned it down citing the need for a “blue chip prospect” in addition to any trade.

Is there any team that would go after the reported high price that the Milwaukee Brewers have put on Lucroy? He isn’t the only infielder whom the Milwaukee Brewers could trade away before the Aug. 1 deadline.

Also, there’s also possible relievers that the Milwaukee Brewers could trade away. It’s already been reported that David Stearns is active in making another trade or two before the deadline.

The Milwaukee Brewers have also called up Keon Broxton from AAA and placed Will Middlebrooks on the 15-day DL per The Brewer Nation

The Milwaukee Brewers have one of the top farm systems in all of major league baseball. That doesn’t stop the nay-sayers around the internet, and BP Milwaukee takes a look at happiness in sports.
