Sad News; Atlanta Braves lost a great player to death as he was found dead in…

The Milwaukee Brewers had been canvasing the market looking for starting pitching and on Wednesday, agreed to acquire right-hander Aaron Civale from the Tampa Bay Rays for minor-league infielder Gregory Barrios.


Civale, 29, provides much-needed depth to a Brewers rotation that has been decimated by injuries. Both Wade Miley and Robert Gasser are out for the season after undergoing Tommy John surgery. DL Hall, who was acquired from the Baltimore Orioles for Corbin Burnes, has been out since April with a knee sprain. Joe Ross, meanwhile, is on the 60-day Injured List with a back strain.



In Tampa Bay, Civale had a 5.17 ERA in 27 starts dating back to last season’s trade deadline. His home runs per nine innings pitched and batting average on balls in play soared. How he’ll fare in a hitters’ friendly ballpark in Milwaukee remains to be seen, but the Brewers are betting on highly-regarded pitching coach Chris Hook and the team’s defense to get Civale closer to the level that he pitched in 2023, where he posted a 2.34 ERA in 13 starts with the Guardians.
