The Milwaukee Brewers are cementing their status as World Series contenders, agreeing to a deal with the D-backs for the slugger and infielder Eduardo Escobar. Arizona will host versatile minor league player Cooper Hummel, an outfielder who plays catcher and first baseman, and infielder Alberto Ciprian, In return.
Neither club has confirmed the move. Venezuelan All Star Escobar is an 11-year veteran who has spent part of the last four seasons with the D-backs, and was an All-Star for the first time in 2021:
He has 22 home runs and 65 RBIs this season. His best season came in 2019 with Arizona, when he hit a career-high 35 home runs and drove in 118 runs.
Now Escobar will continue in the National League, but in the Central Division and nothing more and nothing less than with the leading club. It remains to be seen what adjustments manager Craig Counsell makes, who not long ago obtained the services of Dominican Willy Adames, who is the starting shortstop.
