Yesterday, the first place Milwaukee Brewers made a trade with the Pittsburgh Pirates. It sent 1B Carlos Santana to the Milwaukee Brewers, and in exchange for him, the Pittsburgh Pirates received 18-year-old SS, Jhonny Severino.
Carlos Santana will make any lineup better. He's always a player who always produces. It's a big boost for the Milwaukee Brewers. With the Brewers currently sitting at 1st place in the NL Central, and 1.5 games ahead of the Reds, Santana is surely going to help the Brewers down the stretch.
Carlos Santana is having a solid year. The 37-year-old is slashing .235/.321/.412, to go along with that, he's hit 12 HR's, 53 RBI's, .733 OPS. These stat's would impress any contending team looking for depth on their team.
Carlos Santana is a free agent after this year, as he signed a 1 year / $6.5M deal in the beginning of the season with the Pirates. The Brewers absolutely got better with this move, any team who has a chance to make the playoffs would want a player like Carlos Santana. Santana is always producing for any team he's on.
