Less than 24 hours after I posted how I really don’t think the Brewers’ bullpen is in rough shape comes news that will turn in into a strength. The Brewers are apparently on the verge of signing Eric Gagne.
There’s a very good chance that Gagne-Cordero and Riske-Linebrink could each be a wash, meaning the Brewers have added two experienced in addition to that. All of a sudden someone like Turnbow could be trade bait.
The fact that it is likely a one-year deal makes this move risk free, and a great signing in my opinion.
Edit:I also just realized that Gagne is a Type B free agent, which means the Brewers won’t even need to surrender a draft pick for him. Absolutely nothing not to like about this move!
