The Brewers and Diamondbacks are currently in talks regarding starter Yovani Gallardo and relief pitchers John Axford, Francisco Rodriguez and Jim Henderson, sources tell Jon Morosi of Fox Sports. As of tonight, no deal appears imminent, Morosi says, but a deal between the two teams is very possible. While the Brewers have some good pieces in their bullpen, the Diamondbacks have a very good farm system, so a deal could work. Don't expect all of those players to be traded if a deal goes down, but expect Gallardo and one of the relievers to be involved. The Brewers are going to be asked a lot about their relievers because it is believed they will be sellers and the trade market for relievers is incredibly thin. Since the market is so thin, it could force a team to overpay for their bullpen pieces. There are a lot of teams out there in need of bullpen help, so expect most of those teams to start by contacting the Brewers. While the two teams are talking, remember, a lot of teams talk. It doesn't mean a deal is going to happen, but if a deal were to happen, these two teams make a lot of sense for each other. On the year, Gallardo is 6-8 with a 4.78 ERA and a 82/38 strikeout-to-walk ratio. Axford is 3-3 with a 3.86 ERA and a 37/14 strikeout-to-walk ratio. This year Francisco Rodriguez is having a bounce back year. He is 1-1 with a microscopic 0.96 ERA and a 19/6 strikeout-to-walk ratio. Jim Henderson is also having a great year by going 3-2 with a 2.05 ERA and a 31/9 strikeout-to-walk ratios. Of the three relief pitchers, I think Henderson will be the most valuable trade asset for the Brewers. He is relatively young, he's pitching well and he doesn't have much tread on the tires. While no deal is imminent at the moment, expect more and more of these trade rumors to surface. Welcome to trade deadline season, folks! Follow @mlbinjurynews Looking for fantasy baseball advice?
