The Miami Marlins have been unusually active during the annual winter meetings and they appear to be looking at another player who lost his starting job near the end of last season.
The last team in the major leagues to produce a shutout this season, the Brewers now have seven in the team’s last 30 games. Including two straight over Miami.
Even minus Ryan Braun, the Milwaukee Brewers’ lineup hardly skipped a beat. Jonathan Lucroy had four hits, Yovani Gallardo threw eight scoreless innings and Milwaukee beat the Miami Marlins 6-1 Monday night for its fourth consecutive victory.
It didn’t take long for newly acquired first baseman Carlos Lee to make an impact for the Miami Marlins. Lee doubled and scored in his Marlins debut. Starting pitcher Mark Buehrle struck out eight over 7.2 innings as the Marlins beat the Milwaukee Brewers 4-0 Thursday to split the four-game series.
