Milwaukee Brewers trade Nick Franklin to Angels


The Milwaukee Brewers designated utilityman Nick Franklin for assignment a few days ago, and there was apparently interest in his services around the league. Rather than run Franklin through waivers, the Brewers announced earlier today that they had traded the former top prospect to the Los Angeles Angels in exchange for cash considerations or a PTBNL. In 89 plate appearances with Milwaukee, Franklin hit only .195/.258/.317 with two home runs and two steals.
