Reports: Brewers Close to Acquiring Looper

ESPN Rumors and the Boston Globe have reported that the Brewers are close to signing former Cardinal Braden Looper, despite the Orioles also still being reportedly interested. Looper was a reliever for most of his career, saving over 100 games and having an ERA of 3.58. In 2007, LaRussa put Looper in his starting rotation. As a starter for two years, he made an average of over 30 starts a year while going 24-26 with a 4.50 ERA.

As I stated in the Free Agent Roundtable, Looper is a very interesting option because he could be used as a closer; a role he has had more success in. However, if he will be used as a starter, he is already quite similar to a pitcher who is already in the rotation and has had limited success to put it nicely (Jeff Suppan). More information as it becomes available.
