Milwaukee Brewers trade Tristan Archer to Cincinnati Reds


The Milwaukee Brewers completed a minor transaction yesterday afternoon, announcing via their Player Development Twitter page that the club has dealt minor league pitcher Tristan Archer to the Cincinnati Reds for cash considerations. A longtime Milwaukee farmhand, Archer was a 21st round draft pick back in 2013 and will qualify for minor league free agency this fall. The 28 year old appeared in 229 games in the minors for the Brewers, working 468.1 innings with a 3.75 ERA. He's spent parts of the last three seasons pitching at the Triple-A level, including 10 games and 16.2 innings with a 4.32 ERA for San Antonio in 2019. The Brewers have a plethora of pitching depth at Triple-A and Archer was down pretty far on the depth chart, so this move should hopefully provide him a better opportunity to make the big leagues or at least get regular work at Triple-A.
