Brewers Trade For Omar Narvaez

The Milwaukee Brewers acquired catcher Omar Narvaez from the Mariners on Thursday in exchange for minor league pitcher Adam Hill and a competitive balance Round B draft pick. The left-handed hitting Narvaez, 27, had a career year for Seattle in 2019, hitting .278 with 22 home runs and 55 RBI in 132 games. He'll effectively replace Yasmani Grandal as Milwaukee's catcher after Grandal signed with the White Sox last month. While Narvaez is one of the better hitting catchers, he had a .994 fielding percentage and threw out 13 of 71 base stealers (18 percent). Manny Pina, who hit .228 with seven homers and 25 RBI in 76 games last year, should back up Narvaez. Narvaez will have plenty of fantasy appeal in hitter-friendly Milwaukee in single-catcher leagues, while Tom Murphy should be the starting catcher in Seattle now that Narvaez is out of the picture.

Josh Hader Likely To Remain With Brewers

At least one of the teams engaged with the Milwaukee Brewers regarding closer Josh Hader is convinced that the Brewers will keep the left-handed reliever heading into the 2020 season. Milwaukee is rightfully asking for a king's ransom for the best left-handed reliever in the game, but it's still possible a desperate team gives up the farm for him. Hader, still only 25, had a 2.62 ERA, 0.81 WHIP, 37 saves and a career-high 16.4 K/9 in 75 2/3 innings last season. The only negative thing about Hader is that he's already tossed 204 2/3 innings in his three seasons with Milwaukee as a workhorse bullpen arm. No matter where he's pitching next year, he'll be an elite fantasy closer with tremendous strikeout upside.

Travis Shaw, Jimmy Nelson Non-Tendered

Milwaukee Brewers infielder Travis Shaw and starting pitcher Jimmy Nelson were non-tendered on Monday, making them free agents. Shaw hit a combined 63 home runs in 2017 and 2018 but slumped to hit .157 with just seven home runs and 16 RBI last year, leading to the Brewers moving on. He was even demoted to Triple-A for a spell in 2019. Junior Guerra, Alex Claudio and Tyler Saladino were also non-tendered. Nelson struggled in 2019 after missing almost two full years following right shoulder surgery. He could become a back-of-the-rotation starter for another team if he can stay healthy.

Josh Hader Available For Trade

Milwaukee Brewers closer Josh Hader is available in a trade this offseason, according to major league sources. "We listen on a wide variety of players throughout the offseason. A lot of players get discussed," general manager David Stearns said. Hader has been the best left-handed reliever in baseball the last few seasons, winning the Trevor Hoffman award as the best reliever in the National League in each of the last two years. But Hader will only become more expensive each year through salary arbitration, and his trade value might be at its peak. If he's dealt, he'll almost certainly be a closer wherever he lands after posting a 2.62 ERA, 0.81 WHIP, 138 K's in 75 2/3 innings and 37 saves for the Brew Crew in 2019. He's an elite fantasy closer at age 25.

Blue Jays Discussing Mike Moustakas

The Toronto Blue Jays have discussed adding third baseman Mike Moustakas this offseason, as well as Japanese hitters Yoshitomo Tsutsugo and Shogo Akiyama. Toronto is looking to add a bat at second base, first base and center field. Moustakas, a left-handed hitter, can play first, second or third base and would offer the most offensive upside after he clubbed 35 home runs and drove in 87 runs in 523 at-bats for the Brewers in 2019. Moose has become more attractive for fantasy owners because of his eligibility at both the hot corner and the keystone, and moving to hitter-friendly Toronto would also add a boost to his power numbers.
