Brewers Trade Aaron Hill To Red Sox For Two Prospects

Jul 8, 2016 1:39 AM

Brewers infielder Aaron Hill's two-month surge has him on the move for the second time in six months.

The Brewers traded the 34-year-old with cash to the Red Sox for two Minor Leaguers including 20-year-old infielder Wendell Rijo, ranked No. 17 on MLBPipeline.com's list of Boston's top prospects. The other player is 27-year-old pitcher Aaron Wilkerson, who overcame Tommy John surgery and two years out of college to pitch his way to the brink of the big leagues.

"Aaron has been a big part of this team since the minute we acquired him, really," said Brewers GM David Stearns, who lauded Hill for, "what he did for our culture within our clubhouse and the type of influence he was in some of our younger players. And that's putting aside what he did consistently on the field.

"He played well enough to garner significant external interest."

Brewers Aren't 'Actively Out Shopping' Ryan Braun, Jonathan Lucroy

Jun 17, 2016 7:39 AM

Milwaukee Brewers owner Mark Attanasio has downplayed trade rumors involving Ryan Braun and Jonathan Lucroy.

"Much ado about nothing so far," Attanasio said of the constant speculation that either Braun or Lucroy, or both, will be traded.

"We're not actively out shopping either of these guys."

The Brewers are open to discussing serious offers for the two players as the season progresses, but Attanasio said it still is too early for serious discussions involving Braun and Lucroy.

Brewers Unlikely To Trade Jonathan Villar

Jun 10, 2016 8:28 AM

The Milwaukee Brewers appear to have found a gem in Jonathan Villar, who they acquired from the Houston Astros, and he has established himself as a starting shortstop.

Villar, 25, is hitting .300/.398/.441 with five home runs, 25 RBI and 22 stolen bases.

The Brewers have a great shortstop prospect in Orlando Arcia, but that doesn't mean Villar will become a trade chip.

"We are looking to acquire players like that," Stearns said.
