MLB free agency is underway. There are a lot of big name players who have not signed with a team yet. For teams that may be looking for bargain deals there are also a lot of under the radar players available as well. In a recent article from R.J. Anderson, he listed two Brewers as potential targets for teams seeking a bargain. The two players listed are Brad Boxberger and Jonathan Davis.
Former Brewers Reliever: Brad Boxberger
Boxberger has spent the last two seasons in Milwaukee. The Brewers elected to decline his $3.00 MM option for the 2023 season. There is a lot of speculation that the team is looking to bring him back on a lesser deal. He did pass through waivers, which suggests that his market value is incredibly low.
If Boxberger is able to replicate his performance from the past two seasons, he would be a great bargain pick up for any team. Boxberger did not re-sign with the Brewers last year until March, so it is possible that he waits until nearly the last second to sign a contract again with any team.
Former Brewers Outfielder: Jonathan Davis
Davis appeared in 37 games for the Brewers in 2022. Prior to that he spent time with the Yankees and Blue Jays. Overall he has not found success at the plate in the big leagues, but is a tremendous defender in the outfield.
For any team looking to acquire Davis, he would help provide outfield depth. The 30 year old is out of minor league options and likely would get signed to a minor league deal.
