Hader dealt in shocking move

With the Milwaukee Brewers 3 games ahead of the Saint Louis Cardinals in the NL Central going into the beloved trade deadline, most fans expected the team to be ‘buyers’ at the deadline and ship away some top prospects. David Stearns had other plans, as he traded All Star Reliever Josh Hader to the San Diego Padres for a package of 4 players, with left handed pitching prospect Robert Gasser being the main prospect coming to Milwaukee. 

 

 

Hader was entering free agency after the 2023 season, and the Padres will be getting 1.5 seasons worth of all star closing pitching. The Brewers also got Taylor Rogers and Dinelson Lamet in return, two MLB quality pitchers, that will help add to the bullpen that has been scored on more than usual since the series against the Chicago Cubs starting back on July 4th. The Brewers have Devin Williams left in the bullpen, who has a 1.59 ERA in 43 appearances this year. 

 

Do not expect this to mean the Brewers are sellers at the deadline though, as reports have come out that Milwaukee is more ‘retooling’ their major league roster than selling it off for prospects. 

 

 

President of Baseball Operations David Stearns is known to work in silence, as nobody saw this Josh Hader trade coming, so be on the lookout for more moves coming out of Milwaukee before the trade deadline tomorrow at 5 P.M.
