After trading away Aramis Ramirez, Carlos Gomez, Mike Fiers, Gerardo Parra, and Jonathan Broxton at the trade deadline, the Brewers received several minor leaguers who have already seen action this week.
Yhonathan Barrios, traded for Ramirez from the Pirates, has gone 4.1 innings in relief thus far in 4 games while earning 2 saves and giving up 0 runs. He has pitched well out of the bullpen for the Shuckers since being acquired.
Outfielder Domingo Santana, traded from the Astros in the Gomez and Fiers deal and formerly Houston’s #7 prospect, has had a stellar week. In four games, he is batting .321 with 5 RBIs and an OPS of 1.000. Here’s Santana’s triple the other night.
Outfielder Brett Phillips, also traded from the Astros (was their #2 prospect), has gone 4-17 from the plate so far for AA Biloxi, batting .235. He’s also shown off some leather.
Biloxi got strong starts from both pitchers traded from the Astros: Adrian Houser and Josh Hader. Houser went 5.2 innings, giving up 7 hits and 3 runs (all earned) with 6 strikeouts and 0 walks on Monday. The next day, Tuesday, Hader was dominant. He got the win with 5 innings, 1 hit, 0 runs, 9 strikeouts, and 1 walk.
Zach Davies, traded for Parra and formerly the Orioles #3 prospect, got the win last night for AAA Colorado Springs against one of the better AAA teams in Oklahoma City (Los Angeles Dodgers affiliate). He went 6 innings, giving up only 6 hits, 1 earned run, and 3 walks, and had 7 strikeouts on 100 pitches.
Malik Collymore, the 20-year old outfielder and formerly #27 prospect in the Cardinals system who was traded for Broxton, is 1-4 thus far for Helena (rookie ball).
