there’s just no way we could have outbid Milwaukee for Eduardo Escobar. Switch hitter, not bad K rate, middle infielder, .800 ops post trade. Some complex kid and a 26yo AAAA playerJonathan Schoop wouldve helped this team a bunch, but guess the Tigers just weren’t interested. Asdrubel Cabrera too.
Milwaukee is sending back prospects Cooper Hummel and Alberto Ciprian to complete the deal.
Hummel, 26, was an 18th-round pick for Milwaukee in 2016 and is currently at Triple-A, where he's slashing .254/.435/.508. He has played first base, catcher and the outfield for Nashville.
Ciprian, 18, signed as an undrafted free agent with Milwaukee in 2019 and was playing in the Dominican Summer League, averaging .378 while adding eight RBIs in his first 12 professional games.
