3. Left-handed relief pitcher
The Milwaukee Brewers have two left-handed pitchers on their 40-man roster. One is Josh Hader, who’s role as a high-leverage reliever is locked in. The other is Brent Suter, who probably won’t throw a pitch until August at the earliest.
The Brewers need to find a lefty to compliment Hader, and they can do it at the upcoming Winter Meetings. We’ve already highlighted the best available options on the free agent market, but the Brewers could also choose to reunite with Dan Jennings or Xavier Cedeno. There several options available on the market, and agents will push hard to get their clients a job before the Christmas holiday.
Adding a lefty reliever is only slightly more exciting than adding a non-roster invitee, but the Brewers can solve this issue easily right now. There are a ton of names on the market, and the Brewers are a virtual lock to add one of them soon.
