In Search For An Outfielder – Milwaukee Brewers


In Search For An Outfielder – Milwaukee Brewers

So far, we have identified the following outfielders as possible targets for the Mets:

                Atlanta – Reed Johnson
                Arizona – A.J. Pollock
Baltimore – Nolan Reimold
                Boston – Jerry Sands
                Chicago Cubs – Brett Jackson
Chicago White Sox - Dayan Viciedo
Cincinnati – Chris Heisey
                Cleveland – Thomas Neal -
                Colorado – Dexter Fowler
Detroit – none
Kansas City – none
Los Angeles Angels – Mark Trumbo
Los Angeles Dodgers – Alex Castellanos
Miami Marlins – Gorkys Hernandez
Pittsburgh – Jose Tabata

We now move on to the Milwaukee Brewers who need to make some reductions to their eight (8) outfielders on the 40-man:

                Norichika Aoki lefty –  $1.25/mil 2013, FA-2014 – MLB, 520-AB, .288
                Ryan Braun – righty –  $20mil thru 2017 – LF – MLB, 598-AB, 41/112
                Khris Davis – righty –
                Caleb Gindl lefty – pre-ARB -
                Carlos Gomez – righty –  2014-FA -
                Corey Hart – righty –  $10.334mil in 2013, FA-2014 – RF – MLB, 562-AB, 30/83
                Josh Prince – righty –  AA: 505-AB, .251
                Logan Schafer – lefty -  pre-ARB – MLB, 23-AB, .319

Braun isn’t going anywhere for years.

Hart will play 2013 as a Brewer and then hit the FA market.

You can rule out the lefties, Aoki, Gindle, and Schafer.

Prince needs another year under his belt, Davis finished the season at the AAA level (.310), and Gomez… well, we’ve done that before.

Mets target:   Khris Davis… 7th round pick in 2009 out of Cal State Fullerton… leftfielder… good power… career .914 OPS… 2-12: hit .383 at AA, .310 at AAA… ready.

If the Brewers would talk Gomez I'd certainly listen. He's a stellar defender, speedy and last year started to hit for power, too. He finished the year quite strongly.
