The Milwaukee Brewers almost put together some great additions this trade deadline but nothing came together like it nearly could have. Some of the bigger names that were out on the market were rumored to be involved with the Brewers but none of them came over in a trade.
According to FOX Sports’ Ken Rosenthal, the Brewers were close to acquiring Andrew Miller at the deadline but never reached it past the finalist stage to end up winning the prized relief pitcher.
The Red Sox received inquiries on Miller from 10 to 12 teams, according to a source with knowledge of their trade discussions. The Tigers, Orioles and Brewers were the three finalists, the source said.
Milwaukee nearly had a really good trade deadline as they were in the mix for David Price as well, but failed to land any big names before the deadline passed. The bottom line on Milwaukee is that they are becoming more and more aggressive in their push for the postseason, but they’re going to have to win their way to the playoffs with the roster that they have.
