Brewers send Keon Broxton to Mets for two pitchers and infielder
The Milwaukee Brewers are sending outfielder Keon Broxton to the New York Mets in exchange for three players, the team announced Saturday.
In exchange for Broxton, the Brewers receive right-handed pitchers Bobby Wahl and Adam Hill and infielder Felix Valerio from the Mets.
Of the three players acquired, Wahl has the most professional experience, while Hill and Valerio are young prospects.
Wahl, 26, has made 14 career appearances in the Majors with Oakland (7 games in 2017) and New York (7 games in 2018). He spent most of the 2018 season at the Triple-A level.
Hill is a 21-year-old prospect out of the University of South Carolina. He was selected by the Mets in the fourth round of the 2018 First-Year Player Draft. To develop Hill, he spent his first professional season at Class-A Brooklyn.
Valerio is an 18-year-old infield prospect who spent his first professional season in the Dominican Summer League. His 84 hits tied for the league lead.
The Brewers are parting ways with Broxton, who has been with the team since 2016. In 2018, Broxton only appeared in 51 games and struggled with just a .179 batting average.
