Breaking: Brewers Land RP John Curtiss From Marlins

It appears the Milwaukee Brewers will end the 2021 trade deadline with a power bat and two relief pitchers. The Brewers picked up John Curtiss from the Miami Marlins.

Going back to the Marlins will be catcher Payton Henry, the team’s number 19 prospect according to Milwaukee have four other catchers in their top 20 prospect list currently.

The 28-year-old is having a great season. The right-hander is 3-1 with a 2.48 ERA over 35 games. He only has nine walks over 40 innings of work. He is averaging a strikeout per inning.

Not only do the Brewers add another reliever, but they add a reliever that is not a rental. Curtiss won’t hit free agency until 2026. He is a fastball and slider combo pitcher, and has been compared to former Brewer J.P. Feyereisen.

Before joining the Marlins, the Texas native had played with the Minnesota Twins, Los Angeles Angels and Tampa Bay Rays.

If this is the last trade for the Brewers, that means they will have added Willy Adames, Rowdy Tellez, Eduardo Escobar, Daniel Norris and Curtiss without having to give up any of their top prospects.
