After the original deal was delayed, the brewers and SP Matt Garza have finally agreed to a deal that should keep Garza in Milwaukee for at least five years. Garza will earn at least $50 million over the course of the contract, with a chance to make even more in incentives.
Brewers finally make a move this off season, but it likely won’t help much because the Brewers are still weak in many areas. Garza will help, but they could still us more help in a very unproven rotation.
Garza has experience in the NL Central at least, playing for a few years with the Cubs before being traded to the Rangers last year. He finished last year with a 3.8 ERA between the Cubs and Rangers. He is capable of being a solid pitcher, but isn’t the ace the Brew crew were looking for.
Brewers are still in desperate need of bullpen help, as well as first basemen. Their lineup has potential, with five potential all-stars, but the back half is weak and can easily be improved.
Brewers grade is upgraded to a D+, they are still having way too quiet of an offseason coming off the season they had. They needed to make many improvements this year and they just haven’t come through thus far.
