Who Do I Think Would Help Solve The Dilemma(s)?

Ladies and Gentlemen, meet Brooks Kieschnick.

 

Now before you yell me out as crazy, here me out real quick. He's 32, so he's likely not to figure in the Brewers future plans. Milwaukee is currently 6.5 out of the Central lead, and regardless of this Brooks isn't there most important pitcher anyways, only having thrown 27.2 innings. In those 27.2 IP, he's got a 2.60 ERA, 16 K's, 5 Holds, and a .257 OAvg. He's about halfway on Inherited Runners Scoring, which is alright, and he gets 1.34 groundballs to every flyball, meaning he could be brought into the game to get a double play.

 

But wait, there's more. In 40 games (32 At Bats) he's got a .281 Average, .361 OBP, and a .438 SLG (That's a .799 OPS for sabremetrics, not bad for a bench player).

 

Best part? He makes $380,000. I think we could get him pretty cheaply, and while not being the greatest option in the world he would improve the pen and the bench and only take up one spot. (Plus we'd have the added bonus of two pitchers that can hit.....Brooks and Trelle).

The thing, he is a bench player. He isn't a starter or a closer making 380,000, he's a middle reliever / late inning pinch hitter and OF making 380,000. That's about right for that salary considering he hasn't played that much in the majors. He is 32, what kind of plans does he fit in?

I don't particularly see why they would be against it once they pass through a long skid or something of the nature. It could be a minor deal that helps us out.

 

Never said it had to be right now, just saying if we do it in the future it could help in being it would be two moves in one.

I'm not the most versed on what the Brewers need/want, but I would suggest anything more than maybe a mid-level prospect. Maybe someone we have at a big strength that won't see the light of day anytime soon.

I like it. Kieschnick is a great role player for any club, which is why I think Ramp may be right in saying the Brewers would be relunctant to give him up.

 

Despite a decet sinking fastball his groundball ratio and opponents batting average are nothing to excited over. They're just league-average.
