The trade that sent Corey Knebel to the Los Angeles Dodgers has been consummated. Left-handed pitcher Leo Crawford is the player to be named lsyer that is coming back to the Brewers.

Leo Crawford has had success at the minor league level, covering more than 120 innings in 2019 and producing a sub-3.00 ERA across two levels (A+ and AA). He is noted for a strong change up and unique delivery that affects hitters’ timing.

Crawford was available in the Rule 5 draft, but was not picked by another team. The Brewers can now utilize and develop him at the minor league level.

Crawford will turn 24 in February.
