MILWAUKEE, Wis. (WSAU) - The Milwaukee Brewers have announced they’ve made a trade with the Tampa Bay Rays for relief pitcher Burke Badenhop.
The Brewers sent outfielder Raul Mondesi Junior to the American League team. Badenhop will turn 30 before spring training starts. He had a 3-2 record and a 3.03 earned run average while appearing in 66 games last season.
Mondesi is the 20 year old son of a former National League All-Star outfielder. He hit .231 with five home runs in 68 games in the rookie league last summer.
