Brewers agree to trade for Christian Yelich | MLB.com

It appears the Brewers question Brinson’s ability to hit major league pitching. It will be interesting to see how he progresses.

The Marlins continued their rebuilding process on Thursday, trading Silver Slugger Award-winning outfielder Christian Yelich to the Brewers in exchange for three of Milwaukee’s top 14 prospects, according to MLB Pipeline, and four overall—including outfielder Lewis Brinson.

The 23-year-old Brinson, who has 21 games of big league experience, is ranked by MLB Pipeline as the game’s 13th-best prospect. Middle infielder Isan Diaz (Brewers’ No. 6 prospect; No. 86 overall), outfielder Monte Harrison (Brewers’ No. 14) and right-handed pitching prospsect Jordan Yamamoto are also headed to Miami
