Brewers Get Edgy, Swap Prospect for NY’s Canha: What’s the Real Score? 😲🔀⚾
TL;DR: Brewers add a new hitter, Mark Canha, from the Mets in exchange for their No. 30 prospect, Justin Jarvis. Mets cover Canha’s 2023 salary, Brewers foot the 2024 bill. 😱🔄
Milwaukee Brewers fans, your team just got a bit more… interesting. 😜 The Brewers have shaken up the baseball scene by scoring outfielder Mark Canha from the New York Mets. But, was it a home run or a foul ball? 🤔
Mark Canha, a man who knows his way around the outfield (and even dabbles in corner infielding), boasts a batting score of .245/.343/.381 this season. Now, we know what you’re thinking: “Meh, not THAT impressive.” 🙄 But here’s the twist: this move is expected to be a much-needed remedy for Milwaukee’s lackluster right field performance. Their previous 75 wRC+? Let’s just say they were desperate for some saving.
Could Canha be the Brewers’ outfield savior? Especially with their recent promotion of Sal Frelick? And where does Joey Wiemer fit into all this? 🧐
On the contractual side of things, Canha is chillin’ in the second year of a two-year deal he had with the Mets before 2021. Oh, and it gets juicier – the Mets are generously covering his 2023 paycheck, leaving the Brewers to possibly pick up the tab in 2024. Generous or cunning? 🤑
Now, as for what the Mets get out of this deal? Enter Justin Jarvis. This 23-year-old lad began his season with Double-A Biloxi, showcasing a 3.33 ERA and 4.02 FIP in 14 starts. He even made it to Triple-A Nashville recently. But here’s something to chew on: he’s up for grabs in the Rule 5 Draft this winter. Is this the Mets’ sneaky way of preparing for something bigger? 😏
And don’t forget, the Brewers now have some juggling to do. They need to make space for Canha on their 26-man roster, but fortunately for them, a 40-man spot recently opened up.
