Could the Milwaukee Brewers become sellers as the season progresses?
The Brewers have started their 2012 campaign in a lackluster fashion. As of press time, the Brewers are 7-9, four games behind the NL Central-leading St. Louis Cardinals. If the Brewers fail to gain any momentum before the All-Star break there could be some players available for trade.
Who could potentially be available?
There are three names on the current Brewers roster that could bring about some significant attention.
First off, you have the former AL Cy Young Award winner Zack Greinke. He has posted a 1-1 record with 5.09 ERA so far in 2012. There's always a commodity for right-handers and a team like the New York Yankees could be willing to part with a prospect.
Another Brewers player who may be available could be setup-man Francisco Rodriguez. He has not had a stellar campaign to this point as he has posted and 0-2 record with a gaudy 6.75 ERA. Still, he has a good pedigree as a reliever and could be had for a reasonable price.
One of the most intriguing players that may be available could be Shaun Marcum.
He's in the final year of his contract with the Brewers and could be looking to go elsewhere after this season.
It may be an opportune time for Milwaukee to look to move Marcum.
