"How can (the Braves) want to get rid of a guy so bad and then end up getting a shortstop and two good prospects like that in return?"
Brewers acquired second baseman Felipe Lopez from the Diamondbacks for outfielder Cole Gillespie and RHP Roque Mercedes.
Lopez was hitting .305/.368/.416 with six homers and six steals for the Diamondbacks. The Brewers figure to install him as their primary second baseman and leadoff hitter, leaving his fantasy value largely unchanged. This figures to end Mat Gamel's stint in Milwaukee, as Craig Counsell can now share time at third with Casey McGehee. The Diamondbacks could call up Rusty Ryal for a trial at second base. He shouldn't be a long-term option, but when the alternatives are Augie Ojeda and Ryan Roberts, he's worth a shot.
