01/05 Brewers Tidbits: Mulder, Garland, Etc
- There is another mention of the Brewers having interest in Mark Mulder. There was one HERE last week and one HERE in late December. Mulder is a big injury risk as he’s only pitched in 23 games over the last three years as a member of the Cardinals. But when healthy, the lefty puts up some pretty nice numbers. Melvin is likely bargain shopping as Mulder should come at a reduced rate due to his injury history. He’s just 31 and is reportedly healthy and with an improved delivery. His most successful seasons were with Ken Macha in Oakland and he’s from the Midwest (born in Illinois, pitched collegiately for Michigan State), so Milwaukee could be an appealing destination for him.
- Fan Graphs looks at the Type B relievers left on the market. All of these guys are projected to be worth about $3 million in 2009 and most should have some appeal to the Brewers. Personally, of those options, I’d like to see the Brewers bring Gagne back on a one-year deal. He was very effective in the second half and will come much cheaper than last year.
- Fan Graphs also looked at the Type B starters left on the market. They say a team could get a nice deal on Braden Looper with a 2-year, $18 million deal. The Brewers are rumored to be interested in Looper.
- How about John Smoltz or Curt Schilling? Ty Jackson at Bleacher Report says they could be good options for Milwaukee.
