Atlanta Braves - SP Jared Shuster
The Braves are tough considering nearly everyone on their roster is signed to some long term extension or is too valuable to their contending team to consider trading away. But Jared Shuster seems to be on the outside looking in on Atlanta's rotation and the Brewers could have more regular opportunities for him. Shuster's a left handed pitcher, which the Brewers don't have much in the way of and he wouldn't cost very much for a young pitcher with lots of team control.
Miami Marlins - SP Trevor Rogers
The Marlins have a good crop of pitching and Trevor Rogers showed some high end talent with a 2.64 ERA in 2021 before struggling in 2022 and dealing with injuries in 2023. Rogers' trade value has certainly declined from his 2021 peak but he's just 25 years old and that talent is still in there. The Brewers could buy low on a talented arm, banking on his health in 2024, which is still risky, but if it pays off, Milwaukee's rotation won't skip a beat without Woodruff next year.
New York Mets - 1B Pete Alonso
The Brewers and Mets had discussions about Pete Alonso back at the Trade Deadline and they certainly could have more discussions this offseason. With former Brewers president David Stearns now in charge, he knows the Brewers system as well as anyone and a trade could be possible. The Mets are gearing up for 2025 and may not be looking to compete this year and if they can't agree to an extension with Alonso, then a trade may be the best move for his final year of team control.
Philadelphia Phillies - RP Jeff Hoffman
The Phillies aren't likely to trade anyone from the core of their roster this winter, but one player that could be available is bullpen pitcher Jeff Hoffman. He's in the final year of arbitration and is coming off a solid year as the setup man. The Brewers are always looking for relievers and perhaps a deal could be swung for Hoffman.
Washington Nationals - C Riley Adams
The Nationals are another tough team to find a trade candidate for, since they've traded away most of their valuable players recently and the players that remain are part of their future plans. Backup catcher Riley Adams isn't a part of those plans though as Keibert Ruiz is their long-term answer behind the plate. With Caratini in free agency, Adams could be the Brewers next backup catcher behind William Contreras.
