Brewers Trade For Eduardo Escobar From Arizona To Shore Up Infield

The Milwaukee Brewers have made a trade with the Arizona Diamondbacks to send All-Star infielder Eduardo Escobar to the Milwaukee Brewers.

This was a trade that has made sense for quite some time. Escobar, a switch-hitting third baseman with experience all over the field, is in the final year of his contract with Arizona, and is earning just $7MM this year, and the Brewers will only be on the hook for just about $2MM of it.

With a weak spot at both corner infield positions in the lineup, making an addition was seen as probable and Escobar is a solid addition.
