The small market Milwaukee Brewers have a reputation of being an organization that makes moves at unusual times. Last year they traded Josh Hader at the deadline despite having a year and a half of control remaining and being in playoff contention. This year one rumor being tossed around is the possibility of trading two star players each with a year and a half of control left.
Jeff Passan initially proposed this thought in his trade deadline preview article. His thought was that the Brewers should trade Corbin Burnes and Willy Adames together in order to get a mega haul in return.
“Officials believe a Burnes deal, if it does happen, is likelier to come in the winter, but if the deadline market shrivels and starting pitching is at a premium, the Brewers have shown they are willing to make value plays even when they’re uncomfortable and unpopular. And if there’s no [Dylan] Cease-and-[Tim] Anderson or [Shane] Bieber-and-[Amed] Rosario deals to be had, a Burnes-and-Willy Adames package would be plenty tempting.”
Other fan bases have started to take notice of this idea and are hoping that their team has the fire power needed in order to pull off a blockbuster trade for Corbin Burnes and Willy Adames. One Fansided writer recently proposed that the Atlanta Braves have the MLB-ready talent needed in order to pull this trade off.
Could the Milwaukee Brewers trade two star players to the Atlanta Braves for MLB ready talent?
What would the Braves have to offer the Brewers in a trade for Corbin Burnes and Willy Adames? Mark Powell believes Vaughn Grissom could be a solid starting point along with other MLB-ready talent.
The Braves prospect cupboard is relatively barren at the moment, but what they do have is young, MLB-ready talent in abundance. Trading the likes of Vaughn Grissom and more could be enough.
A few other MLB ready Braves prospects to consider would be Jared Shuster (#1 prospect) AJ Smith-Shawver (#4 prospect), Braden Shewmake (#6 prospect), Darius Vines (#8 prospect), and Dylan Dodd (#10 prospect).
If a blockbuster deal were to occur it would result in a huge return for the Brewers. However some MLB insiders believe that Corbin Burnes won’t be moved until the winter. It will be interesting to see what happens this summer, but more than likely both players will stay put.
