Phew! One of the more exciting trade deadlines in MLB history has come and gone. All 30 teams participated. As the dust settles, the Detroit Tigers chipped in one transaction, trading Daniel Norris to the Brewers in exchange for RHP Reese Olson.
At face value, it’s a good return for Norris. Olson has spent the entire season with Milwaukee’s Low-A affiliate, striking out 79 batters with a 4.30 ERA in 14 starts. It’s been reported by Jason Beck that Olson will remain in the Midwest League and be assigned to West Michigan, but should be promoted to Erie shortly to finish out the year.
