Found June 27, 2013 on MLB Injury News:
The Milwaukee Brewers appear to be ready to sell as well. They have some good pieces in the bullpen and teams want those guys. The Brewers have not played well at all this year and that is an understatement, so selling makes a ton of sense. The Brewers, according to Buster Olney of ESPN, have received calls on relievers John Axford, Mike Gonzalez and Francisco Rodriguez as well as starters Yovani Gallardo and Kyle Lohse. The Brewers have a nice young piece in Jean Segura, so it would be smart to build around him. Trading for pieces to put around him would be the smartest thing the Brewers could do. Segura is an up and coming star, so if the Brewers were to build around someone, it would be him. The Brewers will not get a ton for Axford, Gonzalez or Rodriguez, but they could get a nice package for Gallardo and Lohse. While it is unlikely that they trade Lohse, it is entirely possible that they trade Yovani Gallardo. Right now, he is the Brewers most valuable trade asset. The Brewers would be brilliant to sell at the deadline and they realize that. They may not get equal value for any of those guys, but at least they would be getting something for them. On the year, Axford is 3-3 with a 4.09 ERA and a 35/13 strikeout-to-walk ratio. Gonzalez is 0-3 with a 3.30  and a 36/14 strikeout-to-walk ratio. Gallardo is 6-7 with a 4.20 ERA and a 80/36 strikeout-to-walk ratio. My favorite out of the three is Gallardo. He has proven himself to be a solid pitcher who can strike hitters out with ease. While his stats may not be pretty, he didn't start the year out very well, but now he has kicked it into high gear. All of those guys that are drawing interest can make an impact on any team. They are quality relievers who any team would be lucky to acquire. Follow @mlbinjurynews Looking for fantasy baseball advice?
