The Brewers may be ready to make a late splash in the trade market.
With the waiver trade deadline slamming shut at midnight Friday, Milwaukee has become “active on a number of fronts. Exploring, among other things, a left-handed hitter off the bench,” according to The Athletic.
The report later singled out Blue Jays outfielder Curtis Granderson as a possibility for the Brewers.
Milwaukee traded for Mike Moustakas from the Royals and Jonathan Schoop from the Orioles before the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline, but failed to acquire a starting pitcher, which is a position almost every Brewers fan feels they need to strengthen.
The Brewers had been linked with Reds starter Matt Harvey, but the trade fell through.
After winning two straight games, the Brewers (75-60) are currently third in the NL Central, but hold the second wild-card spot by two games over the Rockies.
