Brewers News and Notes

There’s just two weeks left until the trade deadline, and the market has come alive. Since last week’s trade by the Cubs to acquire Jose Quintana, the rumors have been flying around quick and frequent. For now, most of the rumors surrounding the Brewers focus on Athletics starter Sonny Gray, who is available for trade. The Brewers have shown a lot of interest, but it’s still a question of how much they would be willing to pay, and if that’s enough to get it done. The Brewers have the resources to make this move, and would still have plenty in the farm system if they do. Will they be able to pull off this trade, or will they hold with what they have?
