3 years later, this trade has flipped in a BIG way

Padres received: OF Trent Grisham, RHP Zach Davies
Brewers received: IF Luis Urías, LHP Eric Lauer, a PTBNL or cash

Milwaukee and San Diego will wrap up a three-game series at Petco Park on Wednesday, so it seems like a perfect time to revisit the trade and examine how it’s flipped in favor of the Crew, thanks in large part to Lauer’s breakout.

How it started
When the trade went down, Brewers president of baseball operations David Stearns described it as a deal that would address the needs of two up-and-coming clubs.

“This is one of those trades—and they don’t come across all that often—where you really are lining up on team needs with another team,” Stearns said. “This isn’t a case of one team in a competitive cycle and one team in a build cycle. These are two teams that intend to be competitive next year. We believe we’re lining up on a good trade that helps both teams.”
