Brewers trade Adam Lind to Mariners
Milwaukee Brewers have acquired right-handed pitchers Daniel Missaki, Carlos Herrera, Freddy Peralta from the Seattle Mariners in exchange for first baseman Adam Lind.
The announcement was made by General Manager David Stearns at Major League Baseball’s annual Winter Meeting in Nashville, Tenn.
“We are excited to add three young starting pitchers, all under 20 years-old, to our minor-league system,” said Stearns. “All three possess quality arms with an advanced feel for the strike zone. We wish Adam well and appreciate his contributions to the 2015 Brewers.”
Lind, 32, is set to make $8 million next season before hitting free agency, so he could prove a one-year rental for Seattle, according to CBS Sports.
Last season in Milwaukee, Lind hit .277/.360/.460 with 32 doubles, 20 home runs and 87 RBI. The acquisition fills a gaping hole at first base for the Mariners and gives them a good amount of power in the middle of the order with Robinson Cano, Nelson Cruz, Kyle Seager and now Lind.
Missaki, 19, went 1-2 with a 3.41 ERA in six starts at Class-A Clinton in 2015.
Herrera, 18, spent his professional season in Dominican Summer League and went 4-2 with a 3.26 ERA in 14 starts.
Peralta, 19, went 2-3 with a 4.11 ERA in 11 games with Rookie Arizona Mariners in 2015.
