If you are an early sleeper, this could come as a surprise, as late last night the Milwaukee Brewers sent Outfielder Hunter Renfroe to the Los Angeles Angels for three right handed pitchers.
Renfroe, 30, was a huge part of Milwaukee’s offensive success last season, as he hit 29 home runs and 72 RBIs to go along with a .255 batting average. This move comes in shock to most Brewers fans, as Renfroe was one of the most important pieces to the team. This move comes with rumors that Milwaukee has taken calls about star pitcher Corbin Burnes, so moves could be made from the front office that are unexpected.
The pitchers that Milwaukee will receive in the trade are Janson Junk, Elvis Peguero, and Adam Seminaris. Seminaris appears to be the piece that the front office likes the most, as general manager Dan Arnold spoke about the trade.
Arnold on Seminaris: "A guy that's also moved fast through the system. Has a 4- to 5-pitch mix with a lot of weapons to get guys out with.— Todd Rosiak (@Todd_Rosiak) November 23, 2022
"We're excited about all three of these guys."
Milwaukee will now see their outfield consist of former NL MVP Christian Yelich, Tyrone Taylor, Garrett Mitchell, and potential prospects Sal Frelick and Estuery Ruiz.

It should be an interesting offseason to come for the baseball team down in Milwaukee, and one that could come with some criticism from the fans.
