Brewers Agree to Five-Year, $80 Million Deal With Lorenzo Cain

Brewers GM says team has talked to Ryan Braun about moving to first base

Brewers win Cain sweepstakes, sign outfielder to 5-year deal

As first reported by, the Brewers have acquired outfielder in a deal with the Miami Marlins.

For the Marlins, this continues their desire to pare down their payroll by any means necessary.

After the Marlins dealt Giancarlo Stanton and Marcell Ozuna in separate trades last month, Yelich asked to be traded, as well.

Harrison runs well, fields well, throws well and even showed considerable pop in his age-21 season split between two Single A levels. With Yelich and Cain coming into the fold, the Brewers still have Ryan Braun, Keon Broxton and Domingo Santana on their roster.

On the Marlins side, they finally receive a decent return in a trade.

Brinson, 23, is the Brewers' No. 1 prospect, according to MLB Pipeline.

They won't be in it. "I know it sounds ridiculous, like we're nearly talking about gangs here", he continued. He may have done that, but he also gave them a good laugh - along with the rest of the country.

Last year, Cain played in 155 games with a.300 batting average. Baseball America this week said he was the No. 18 prospect on its new top-100 list. Diaz had been a consensus top 100 prospect as well, but struggled a year ago.

Isan Diaz's year was disappointing after he slugged.469 and hit 20 homers in low-A in 2016, although he played with a hamate injury for part of 2017, eventually having surgery to fix a fracture at the end of August. Playing at two levels a year ago, Harrison produced a combined.272/.350/.481 batting line, slugging 21 homers and stealing 27 bases.

With the Jays still having a number of large contracts on the books for a few more years they could really put the added financial flexibility to good use if they could rid themselves of the Morales contract however at what cost.

Yelich's arrival in Milwaukee might be met with more enthusiasm in fantasy than he deserves.

He'll earn $7 million this season, the fourth in a seven-year deal signed in March 2015 that will pay him $43.25 million through the 2021 season, while Cain is expected to earn $80 million over the next five years. That the Brewers, who play in the smallest television market in the league, have planted a flag for 2018 is a direct contradiction from one of the others.

Springfield native Isan Diaz is now a part of the Miami Marlins' rebuild.
