Milwaukee Brewers Untapped: Luc Could Be Gone Soon

We are just five days out from the trade deadline, and the feeling is that a trade involving the Milwaukee Brewers’ Jonathan Lucroy is steadily gaining momentum.

Lucroy’s offense is the only thing that affects his trade value, and BP Milwaukee has an in-depth look at his defensive play. Among the teams actively interested in Lucroy, include the Detroit Tigers.

Is Motown the place where the Milwaukee Brewers ship away the 30-year old catcher to? ESPN’s Ken Rosenthal and Jerry Crasnick both mentioned the Detroit Tigers as being a team in the mix of trade talks.

Of course, he isn’t the only player that could be traded, but if recent reports are to be believed the Milwaukee  Brewers are asking too much for pitcher Jeremy Jeffress. Will Smith is another player that the Milwaukee Brewers could trade away in the next five days.

If a team were to pay the high price for the reliever, Tom Haudricourt reports that Skipper Craig Counsell would be able to adjust without him.

According to ESPN, there’s one player that is completely untouchable on the Milwaukee Brewers roster, and it’s someone you wouldn’t expect.The Milwaukee Brewers could also cash in on the looming deadline going for the likes of a Shelby Miller-type pitcher per Brew Crew Ball.
