Milwaukee Brewers Wiretap

Brewers Realistic About Stance At Trade Deadline

Jul 2, 2015 6:52 AM

The Milwaukee Brewers are beginning to prepare for the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline.

"You look at the standings and there aren't many teams where we are," scouting director Zack Minasian said. "We'd be doing ourselves a disservice if we weren't honest with ourselves about where we're at."

The problem for the Brewers is that a number of their potential trade chips are having down seasons. Aramis Ramirez, Gerardo Parra, Adam Lind and Kyle Lohse could all be moved.

Brewers Not Opposed To Trading Jean Segura

Jun 29, 2015 8:02 AM

There have been reports that the Milwaukee Brewers have told teams they won't trade Jean Segura, but that isn't the case.

They won't rush to move Segura, but shortstop is a position of strength within the Milwaukee organization.

Orlando Arcia destined to be the starter in the not-so-distant future.

Segura has three more years -- all in arbitration -- before he can be a free agent, so the Brewers could ask for a lot in return.

The first round of Major League Baseball's First-Year Player Draft was dominated by shortstops, who went 1-2-3, but overall position players were a hot commodity.
