MLB Trade Rumors: Brewers To Be "Buyers"; 1 Name Linked

According to insider Robert Murray, the Milwaukee Brewers are poised to be active buyers ahead of the MLB trade deadline, aiming to fortify their pitching staff amidst a barrage of injuries in their rotation. 

One prominent name swirling in trade talks is left-handed pitcher Garrett Crochet from the Chicago White Sox. 

With an impressive 3.49 ERA across 13 starts this season, Crochet stands out as a coveted target for the Brewers, offering a valuable left-handed option to bolster their rotation.

Securing Crochet would not only address the immediate needs of the Brewers but also align with their long-term vision, as they aim to assemble a formidable pitching arsenal alongside standout talents like Freddy Peralta. 

The potential addition of Crochet could solidify the Brewers' pitching depth and position them as strong contenders for a playoff push. 

Over his four-year MLB career, the 24-year-old holds a strong 3.09 ERA, 1.14 WHIP, along with 178 strikeouts across 142.2 innings and 85 appearances (13 starts & 18 games finished).

As the trade deadline approaches, it will be interesting to see how Milwaukee navigates the market and whether they can strike a deal to land Crochet and further strengthen their roster.
