The Brewers acquired infielder Brad Miller and cash from the Tampa Bay Rays for first baseman/outfielder Ji-Man Choi on Sunday.
Tampa Bay will send Milwaukee $2,209,677 as part of the trade, which will offset all but $500,000 of the $2,709,677 remaining in Miller’s $4.5 million salary this year.
Goldschmidt’s first blast was one of three homers German Marquez (4-6) allowed in the third. One pitch after Goldschmidt’s drive, Lamb went deep down the right-field line. One out later, Peralta homered into the Colorado bullpen to extend Arizona’s lead to 5-1.
It was the first time a Colorado pitcher has allowed three home runs in the same inning since Scott Oberg did it on April 19, 2015, at the Los Angeles Dodgers.
I just missed my spots, Marquez said. I missed the location of my pitches and they took advantage of it.
Homers by Charlie Blackmon and Trevor Story a two-run shot to center in the fifth inning got the Rockies within 5-4, but Greinke gave himself a cushion with an RBI single in the sixth. Arizona scored two more in the eighth.
In a corresponding move, the Brewers sent right-handed pitcher Brandon Woodruff to Triple-A Colorado Springs.
Dan Graziano, national Tarik Cohen Jersey NFL writer: I’d extend him, personally. I understand the Seahawks are rebuilding their secondary, but http://www.ravensshopfootballonlines.com/Authentic-Tim-Williams-Jersey that means they’re not paying anyone else in the unit top-of-market money (unless Chancellor actually does play again). Thomas is still under 30 and probably could help make the rebuild work. Assuming Chancellor is off the books, why wouldn’t they be able to give him a deal in that ($12 million/year) range?
Aaron Schatz, editor-in-chief of http://www.bearsfootballonline.com/WOMENS_YOUTH_TARIK_COHEN_JERSEY.html Football Outsiders: The best result would be to extend Thomas on a short-term deal. He’s likely to still be one of the top free safeties in football for the next two or three years. But will he take $13 million, and will he take it for only three years? Throw more than that on the contract and you risk carrying dead weight in a couple of years.
If the Seahawks trade Thomas, which team makes the most sense to target him?
Henderson: Dallas Cowboys. They are the obvious choice Authentic Tim Williams Jersey given that they’re the only team known to have had serious interest in Thomas. He has serious interest in playing for them, which could matter for this reason, among others: Any team that trades for Thomas would want to have an extension in place first, and that would be facilitated if Thomas was willing to take a little less money in exchange for the chance to play for his hometown team.
