After acquiring shortstop Willy Adames and first baseman Rowdy Tellez in earlier trades, the Brewers have made another addition to the infield. Milwaukee announced the acquisition of All-Star Eduardo Escobar from the Diamondbacks this evening. Prospects Cooper Hummel and Alberto Ciprian are going to the D-Backs in return.

Escobar has been one of the game’s most obvious trade candidates for months now. The 32-year-old is an impending free agent on the league’s worst team, making him a virtual lock to be moved so long as he performed reasonably well. Escobar has done so, hitting .246/.300/.478 with 22 home runs over an even 400 plate appearances this season. Escobar is making $7.5MM this season, with around $2.8MM still to be paid out. The Brewers are reportedly picking up the entirety of that remaining salary.

I don't think GB is done. I think they make at least one more move for another RP.
