At the 2023 Trade Deadline, the Brewers made a couple of trades to improve the roster. They acquired infielders Carlos Santana and Mark Canha as well as reliever Andrew Chafin.

The Brewers gave up a singular player in each of those deals. Jhonny Severino went to the Pirates for Santana, Justin Jarvis went to the Mets for Canha, and Peter Strzelecki went to the Diamondbacks for Chafin.

Now that we're nearly a year away from those transactions, let's check in on the players the Brewers gave up and how they're doing with their new teams.

Checking in on players the Brewers gave up at the 2023 Trade Deadline

Jhonny Severino, Pirates

Severino was once a top international signing for the Brewers back in 2022, signing for $1.2MM. The young shortstop prospect had only made it up to the Arizona Complex League when he was dealt.

Severino is ranked by MLB Pipeline as the 23rd best prospect in Pittsburgh's organization. The 19 year old shortstop missed the end of last season shortly after the trade after he suffered a broken hamate bone.

This year, Severino has given up switch hitting and is a right-handed hitter only. The results have worked well. Still in rookie ball in the Florida Complex League, Severino is hitting .280/.372/.576 with seven doubles, eight home runs, eight stolen bases, and a .948 OPS.

While he's still several years away from being a major league contributor, Severino is having success and could rise up the prospect ranks. He looks to be making the move off shortstop, but the bat has improved every year.

Justin Jarvis, Mets

Justin Jarvis was rising quickly in prospect status last year with a breakout season. The Brewers capitalized on his breakout and sold high on the young right hander to get Mark Canha. Jarvis struggled upon reaching Triple-A and after the trade. He posted an 8.04 ERA in nine starts for Triple-A Syracuse last year.

This season, Jarvis started back down in Double-A for the Mets, pitching to a solid 2.90 ERA in 10 outings covering 40.1 IP with 45 Ks and just seven walks. He earned a midseason promotion back to Triple-A Syracuse, where he's struggled some more. In three starts there in 2024, Jarvis has a 6.00 ERA in 12 IP, striking out just seven.

Jarvis was thought to be nearing MLB readiness when he was traded last year, but that hasn't quite come to fruition so far. Despite the Mets' woes this year, he hasn't been called upon and he hasn't exactly been putting himself in a good position to get called up either.

The Brewers appear to have sold at the right time on Jarvis.

Peter Strzelecki

The Brewers also traded away Peter Strzelecki, who had been up in the big league bullpen for parts of two seasons before the trade to Arizona. While he wasn't technically still a prospect, the Brewers did swap him for Andrew Chafin.

Strzelecki made just one appearance for Arizona last year, going 1.1 IP without allowing a run. He became a free agent over the winter and signed with the Cleveland Guardians. He's currently down in the minors but has appeared in four big league games for Cleveland, and has a pristine 0.00 ERA in 5.2 IP.

While he hasn't been able to carve out a regular bullpen role with his new teams, Strzelecki has pitched well when given the opportunities.
