Brewers deal Broxton to Mets, get three players in return

By  | 

The Brewers traded right handed hitting outfielder Keon Broxton to the New York Mets on Saturday in exchange for reliever Bobby Wahl and two prospects, Adam Hill and Felix Valerio.

Broxton played just 51 games for Milwaukee in 2018 after the offseason additions of Christian Yelich and Lorenzo Cain. His best season in a Brewer uniform came in 2017, when he hit 20 home runs in 143 games.

Wahl is the only player Milwaukee receives who has major league experience. He's pitched 14 major league games in relief, seven with the Oakland Athletics in 2017 and seven with the Mets last season. He allowed six earned runs in 5 1/3 innings with New York.

Hill, 21, is a right-handed pitcher who was the Mets fourth-round draft pick last year, and pitched 15 1/3 innings for Class-A Brooklyn.

Valerio is an infielder who made his pro debut in the Dominican Summer League, hitting .319 and stealing 16 bases in 67 games.
