Milwaukee Milkmen sign Taylor Ahearn to boost starting rotation

Relatively speaking, the pitching staff was the strength of the Milwaukee Milkmen during their inaugural campaign in 2019. By the end of the season, the club finished with a collective 4.43 earned run average (99 ERA-) and a 4.48 FIP (100 FIP-), both of which ranked right in the middle of the American Association. But with the offense struggling and a record closer to the bottom of the league than the top, the Milkmen decided to turn their attention to the future and sold off two key hurlers — Tanner Keist and TJ House — in midseason trades that netted a host of players who figure to be important contributors for 2020.
