Brewers like Beltran, but Barmes is more likely

Posted on: July 26, 2011 8:03 pm
 
The Brewers have remained on the fringes of the Carlos Beltran talks, with great interest in adding a big-time player but without much left in the minor leagues to offer for him. Brewers people acknowledge that Beltran was always a longshot for them, but they have had scouts watch him during the Mets' last two series.

What's more likely, according to sources, is that the Brewers make a smaller move, and the name to watch now is Astros infielder Clint Barmes.

Barmes could fill in for weak-hitting Yuniesky Betancourt at shortstop, and he could also fill in for struggling Casey McGehee at third base.

The Brewers have also talked to the Dodgers about infielder Jamey Carroll. And they've looked at other outfielders, including Coco Crisp of the A's and Jerry Hairston Jr. of the Nationals.

There is more to trades than just prospects

These trades can also happen by sending current big-league players, cash, and future consderstions.  Alot of these trades are just political "rent a player" deals.  The Brewers have already helped out the Mets with K-Rod's contract bonus, so there is a connection there already.  Don't be shocked if the crew ends up with Beltran anyhow, despite having no minor league prospects.

Reed Johnson would be an ideal fourth outfielder for the Brew Crew, IMO. Not sure if the Cubs have much incentive to move him though, unless they have an upcoming prospect they would like to open up a roster spot for. Whatever happened to Tyler Colvin?
Has a .271 OBP in AAA this year.

I'm sure the Cubs would move him (Reed) for a lower level arm or 2
