2019 Schedule

David Schoenfield ESPN Senior Writer 

The Brewers entered the offseason with three glaring holes on offense: Shortstop, second base and catcher. They'll live with Orlando Arcia at short because of his glove, but the reported one-year, $18.25 million deal with Yasmani Grandal will give them a huge boost at catcher and could prove to be one of the best signings of the offseason. If they want to upgrade second base, Jed Lowrie and DJ LeMahieu are still on the market. In a competitive NL Central, the Brewers should go all-in and sign one of those two as well (especially if they don't add one more starting pitcher).

Tristan H. Cockcroft ESPN Senior Writer 

Milwaukee is a great one-year landing spot for Yasmani Grandal, because of how much of his offensive game is centered upon power. Miller Park was the fifth-best park for home runs from 2014-18, and this is the best power park he has called home in his career BY FAR.

A little Saturday transaction activity in baseball. The Brewers have traded Keon Broxton to the Mets for reliever Bobby Wahl. Also headed to Milwaukee are prospects Adam Hill and Felix Valerio, both of whom made their pro debuts in 2018. Broxton gives the Mets another ace defender in center field with a bit more offensive upside than Juan Lagares.

Brewers acquire reliever Claudio from Rangers

Alex Claudio, who is eligible for salary arbitration after going 4-2 with a 4.48 ERA and one save in 65 appearances for the Rangers last season, was traded to the Brewers.

Thursday at the winter meetings is usually more about flights out of town than trades, but we've now had two this morning in Vegas as reliever Alex Claudio heads to the Brewers from the Rangers. Claudio struggled for most of 2018, but finished the season strong with a 1.80 ERA over his last 11 appearances.
