Brewers Management Meets with Lackey's Agent
Brewers management met with the agent of the hottest pitcher in the free agent market, right handed John Lackey. Brewers General Manager Doug Melvin has said he would like to add two starting pitchers this offseason. Since Lackey is a Class A pitcher, acquiring him would mean the Brewers would lose a pick in next year’s draft. However, since the Brewers own the 14th selection, they would still get a first round pick. Securing Lackey would mean the Brewers would have to give up their second round pick.
