The Brewers are trading away one of their better relievers this season.

MLB: Milwaukee Brewers at Pittsburgh Pirates Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

As the trade deadline approaches, the Brewers have decided to trade one of their better relievers this season:

David Phelps has put together a strong season, posting a 2.77 ERA and 2.75 FIP in 13 innings over 12 appearances so far this season, with 20 strikeouts compared to 2 walks in those innings.

We don’t know what the return will be for Phelps yet, but multiple sources are saying that the Brewers will get back three prospects.

We will continue to update this post as we get more details on the trade.

EDIT: The Brewers have officially announced the trade.
