Brewers acquire reliever Matt Bush from Rangers

The Brewers have made their second move of the deadline late Monday night, trading for right-handed reliever Matt Bush from the Texas Rangers in exchange for infielder Mark Mathias and left-handed pitching prospect Antoine Kelly.

Bush, who notably was the No. 1 overall pick by the Padres in 2004 and ran into personal and legal problems before exiting baseball, made his debut in 2016 with the Rangers. In parts of five seasons with Texas, Bush has pitched to a 3.34 ERA over 180 appearances.

Bush, 36, has pitched in 40 games this season, five of which were starts, accumulating a 2.95 ERA over 36 2⁄3 innings, along with a 3.42 FIP and a 135 ERA+, both of which are his best marks since his debut season. He’s struck out 45 batters compared to 10 strikeouts and has a WHIP of 1.009.

A team named after beer production trades for an alcoholic POS. Makes sense.
