We take a look at what the Brewers might do at the deadline while taking a closer look at Josh Hader following a rough outing Saturday night

MLB: Pittsburgh Pirates at Milwaukee Brewers Benny Sieu-USA TODAY Sports

The Brewers continue to struggle to get over the hump through one half of the shortened 2020 season, and it’s lead to some interesting questions about what the team could do ahead of today’s Trade Deadline.

We take a closer look at what makes sense for the Brewers at the deadline while taking a closer look at the one name mentioned in rumors the most — Josh Hader. Should the Brewers get what they can for him now, or hang onto him a bit longer? Is there any concern about his increased walk rate and lower velo this year, even if he hasn’t allowed a hit yet?
