MLB Rumors: Milwaukee Brewers & Washington Nationals Talking Trade

According to Andy Martino, the Brewers are heavily pursuing Nationals first baseman Josh Bell.

The Brewers are one of many playoff-bound teams who are looking to beef up their roster before this fall. Bell is one of the top rental candidates available, so it makes sense that he is on their radar. When looking at their lineup, it's clear that he would be a major addition to their core.

Bell has had an excellent season with Washington this campaign, and the truth is in his stats. In 97 games, he has 13 home runs, 51 RBIs, and a .302 batting average. Naturally, he has plenty of suitors because of this. Let's see if the Brew Crew are the lucky club to land him from here.
