Brewers Prospect To Gamble With In Trade Talks #1: INF Robert Moore

Currently ranked as the Brewers #8 prospect by MLB Pipeline, Robert Moore was the Crew's Competitive Balance Round B selection in the Draft last year. He's a player that should be able to move quickly through the minor league system and has a good chance to be a big league player for a long time.

The ceiling with Moore may be limited but the floor is quite high. Smart, instinctive players like Moore with a high floor are always in demand across the league and while it'd be good to keep Moore in the Brewers organization, he'd be a solid piece to dangle in a trade to help improve the offense right now.

He's a top 10 prospect in the system, making him a perfect headlining prospect in a potential trade. Moore is putting up solid numbers in High-A Wisconsin right now, but nothing spectacular.

Moore straight up for a player like Nationals 3B Jeimer Candelario could make a lot of sense for both sides. Sending him in a package with other prospects for players with more than two months of control also is a real possibility.

There's a lot for the Brewers to like with Robert Moore, but if they're going to add the players necessary to improve this team, they may need to gamble with losing a solid, high floor prospect like Moore.
