The Braves are in full-rebuild mode, while the Brewers have made some quality moves and are in more of a “re-tool” mode to try and be competitive next season.
The Braves jettisoned the salary of Hector Olivera in a nice deal from them that returned slugger Matt Kemp for essentially just $5-million per season, a worthy gamble for a team that desperately needed some bats.
Closer Jim Johnson may be a veteran on the move during the waiver deadline, as he figures to be a decent veteran add for a contender.
Roberto Hernandez may be 1-0 on the season, but his ERA sits at 5.40 for the year and 4.59 over his career.
The 35-year old pitcher has not started a full season since 2011 with the Cleveland Indians, though he came close in 2014 split between 2 teams.
His WHIP has been 1.30 or worse in every single year until this one, he is simply not a quality starter.
The Brewers shipped away stud catcher Jonathan Lucroy, but returned a top-prospect in Lewis Brinson and another minor leaguer in Luis Ortiz, plus a player to be named later- who has been reported to be a “significant piece.”
Is Ryan Braun the next to go as the Brewers look toward the future?
Chase Anderson will take the hill for Milwaukee with his 5.40 ERA and 1.45 WHIP and a 74/36 K-to-walk ratio.
He’s yet to own a sub-ERA in any season in his career and isn’t much more than a back of the rotation – long man out of the pen.
He’s in tough against a Pirates’ offense that features starts like Gregory Polanco and Starling Marte.
