The Brewers made another trade this morning, sending pitcher Jonathan Broxton and cash considerations to the St. Louis Cardinals in exchange for outfielder Malik Collymore.
Collymore, 20, was a second baseman prior to 2015. Selected by the Cardinals in the 10th round of the 2013 First-Year Player Draft. He spent two seasons with the Rookie Gulf Coast League Cardinals and batted .308 with 2 HR and 37 RBI in 73 games.
31-year-old Broxton went 1-3 with a 5.55 ERA in 51 relief appearances for the Brewers over the span of the last two seasons. The Brewers acquired him last August from the Cincinnati Reds.
