NEW YORK (AP) — Keon Broxton from the Milwaukee Brewers on Saturday Dalton Pompey Jersey , giving them a center field option in addition to Juan Lagares.The Mets sent reliever Bobby Wahl to the Brewers along with a pair of minor leaguers, right-handed reliever Adam Hill and infielder Felix Valerio.Broxton had four home runs, 11 RBIs and a .179 batting average in 51 games for Milwaukee last season. While he stole 23 bases in 2016 and 21 the following year, he swiped just five last season. A right-handed batter, he hit 20 homers in 2017 but struck out 175 times.Mets general manager Brodie Van Wagenen called the 28-year-old Broxton a “dynamic athlete with the ability to impact the game in the outfield, on the bases and with his bat.”Lagares had little depth behind him on the roster, with corner outfielders Michael Conforto and Brandon Nimmo his likely backups in center before the trade. Yoenis Cespedes is recovering from surgery on both heels and New York is not certain when he will return.Wahl, a 26-year-old righty, was acquired by the Mets from Oakland in July as part of the deal that sent closer Jeurys Familia to the Athletics. Wahl went 0-1 with a 10.13 ERA in seven games with the Mets and was 4-2 with a 2.20 ERA for New York’s and Oakland’s Triple-A teams last season.Brewers general manager David Stearns says Wahl “has the arsenal to be a very quality major league reliever and has dominated the upper levels of the minor leagues.”Hill, a right-handed reliever, was selected out of South Carolina in the fourth round of last year’s amateur draft. He went 1-1 with a 2.35 ERA in nine games for the Class A Brooklyn Cyclones.Valerio batted .319 with three homers and 22 RBIs in 67 games in the Dominican Summer League. Greg Fiume/Getty ImagesThe MLB non-waiver trade deadline isn't until Tuesday, July 31, at 4 p.m. ET http://www.bluejaysfanproshop.com/authentic-roberto-osuna-jersey , but numerous teams are making big moves already. Baltimore Orioles shortstop Manny Machado is now a Los Angeles Dodger, and New York Mets closer Jeurys Familia headed west to join the Oakland Athletics' postseason quest.A few more deals should go down well before July 31, including one for Balitmore Orioles reliever Zach Britton, who is arguably the most coveted player left on the trading block.Here's a look at the latest news and rumors on him as well as Kansas City Royals third baseman Mike Moustakas and Tampa Bay Rays starter Chris Archer. Zach BrittonTwo American League powerhouses have emerged as the leaders for Zach Britton, a two-time All-Star who managed 47 saves and a microscopic 0.54 ERA just two seasons ago.Per Jim Bowden of The Athletic:Jim Bowden JimBowdenGM#Astros #Yankees in the lead for Zach Britton but several other teams still in play as trade negotiations are rounding third and heading for home. #OriolesAfter a sweep of the Seattle Mariners gave the New York Yankees a 50-22 record, the Bronx Bombers are just 13-13 in their last 26 games, which include series splits with the last-place Baltimore Orioles and New York Mets. A disheartening 7-6 loss to the Tampa Bay Rays on Monday, in which ace Luis Severino looked shaky and Gary Sanchez loafed on the field and base paths, didn't inspire any confidence.The Yankees will likely make a move prior to the deadline to help right the ship, butNew York needs help in the starting rotation more than anything. Still, another bullpen arm can't hurt.The Houston Astros seem like a much more plausible destination for Britton. Houston's bullpen jumped from 17th in reliever ERA to second this year, thanks in part to the efforts of converted starter Collin McHugh (5-0, 0.96 ERA) and Hector Rondon (1.53 ERA).However Roberto Alomar Jersey , it can't hurt for Houston to improve on its pen, especially considering that the team had a 5.40 relief ERA in the postseason last year. It ended up not costing the team the World Series, but it did cost them some games. Adding Britton as insurance would help prevent a similar situation occurring again.Mike MoustakasThe bottom has fallen out on the Royals just three short years after winning the 2015 World Series. The core of that 2015 team has slowly dissipated over the past few campaigns: Notably, first baseman Eric Hosmer is a San Diego Padre, and outfielder Lorenzo Cain is now a Milwaukee Brewer.Per Jon Morosi of Fox Sports and the MLB Network, Mike Moustakas could now be on the move:Jon Morosi jonmorosiSources: #Brewers have considered possibility of acquiring Mike Moustakas and moving Travis Shaw to 2B, but pitching may become the more urgent priority following Suter injury. MLBNetwork MLBMoose would join his ex-teammate Cain in Milwaukee, which is right in the thick of a playoff race. However, the Brewers are 3-11 in their last 14 games and in serious danger of missing the playoffs, especially with tough series looming against the Los Angeles Dodgers, Atlanta Braves and Chicago Cubs.Milwaukee needs another bat or two in the lineup, and Moustakas could help fill that void. This season, the left-handed slugger has hit 19 home runs in addition to 59 RBI and a .770 OPS. Much of that damage has come against right-handers (15 homers http://www.bluejaysfanproshop.com/authentic-paul-molitor-jersey , .808 OPS).The question is whether incumbent third baseman Travis Shaw, who has never played second base at any point during his big-league career, could make the transition to the opposite side of the infield. If so, the Brewers lineup will have received a monstrous boost. If not, then this potential deal could falter. Chris ArcherThe Tampa Bay Rays are in an odd spot. On one end, the team has gone 11 games over .500 since a 4-13 start, which has resulted in a 51-49 record after 100 games.That's encouraging, but the American League is top heavy this year, and Tampa is still nine games back of the second wild-card spot.Tampa has a long road ahead to make the playoffs, and MLB.com isn't giving the Rays much of a shot (0.7 percent postseason projection).Therefore, the Rays could potentially look toward trading some veterans and rebuilding for a brighter future. Chris Archer has been the subject of trade rumors for a few years now, and that hasn't changed for this season.Per Mark Feinsand of MLB.com:"According to a source, multiple teams have expressed serious interest in Archer Roger Clemens Jersey , who is 3-4 with a 4.30 ERA in 16 starts this season."Per Fangraphs, Archer has a career 3.44 xFIP and 25.8 percent strikeout rate. At this best, he is simply untouchable thanks in part to a nasty slider he throws 42.7 percent of the time. He has been hit hard of late (41.6 percent hard-hit rate in 2018), but his 13.5 percent swinging strike rate helps negate that contact.The two-time All-Star is a free agent prior to the 2020 season, when he will be 31 years old. He likely has a fat multi-year contract waiting for him in two years, which is why Tampa, the team with the third-lowest payroll in the bigs, may have incentive to move him sooner rather than later.
