GM: Brewers Don’t Expect To Trade For An Arm

Brewers GM Doug Melvin told Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel that he doesn't expect to add a starter before tomorrow's trade deadline. The Brewers were looking for starters before Jeff Suppan hit the DL and now their need for arms has grown. Here are the details from Melvin's conversations around the league:

  • The Brewers talked to rival teams about 10 or 12 starters.
  • Melvin says it looks like the Mariners will keep Jarrod Washburn.
  • The D'Backs appear likely to keep Jon Garland and Doug Davis.
  • Kevin Correia was on the Brewers' list, "but there's nothing to it at this time," Melvin said.
  • "We're just not a match for anybody right now," Melvin said.
