3. LHP Jalen Beeks

31 year old Jalen Beeks is going to be one of the most sought after bullpen arms on the trade market this month. He's a rental reliever, becoming a free agent this winter, and is having a solid season.

Beeks has been a high leverage arm for the Rockies, securing six saves and five holds. He's also blown six saves, which is concerning, but the Brewers wouldn't be bringing in Beeks to be their closer. Trevor Megill has been shutdown in that role and Devin Williams is coming back soon.

Jared Koenig's IL placement could leave the Brewers in need of another reliable left handed reliever, which is where Beeks could come in. He avoids hard contact extremely well.

Beeks' 4.43 ERA isn't great, but it's been recently inflated by a pair of poor outings. Prior to last week, Beeks had a more palatable 3.38 ERA.

There's going to be a bit of competition to get Beeks at the deadline. Every contender is always looking for a reliever to add and the Brewers will be no different. The Brewers may not want to get into too much of a bidding war, because they rarely do for any player. Still, Beeks is a reliever to watch at the Deadline and the Brewers make a lot of sense as a suitor for his services.

The Brewers and Rockies don't make trades often. If they make one this month, it'll likely be for one of these three players.
