Milwaukee Brewers: 5 current players who could get traded soon
5. Keon Broxton
The arrival of Lorenzo Cain and Christian Yelich meant that Keon Broxton would either spend most of the year in Triple-A or ride the bench. That’s pretty much how his 2019 season played out.
Broxton played 143 games for the Brewers in 2017, but only made 51 appearances in 2018. He’s still only 28 years old, under team control, and has skills that a Major League team can use. He posted a .254/.323/.421 slash line in Triple-A, and is only one year removed from a 20/20 season with the Brewers. He still has value, even if 2018 was a lost year for him.
There were trade rumors swirling around Broxton last year, so it makes sense that there’s smoke around him again this year. Broxton could get added to a trade package for a solid starter, or get flipped for a useful arm.
