Milwaukee Brewers

MILWAUKEE (WQOW) - The Milwaukee Brewers have traded pitcher Corey Knebel to the Los Angeles Dodgers in exchange for a player to be named or cash.

Major League Baseball teams had to tender contracts to unsigned players on their 40-man roster for 2021 by 7:00 p.m. Wednesday. Knebel was traded just before the deadline, according to multiple reports.

The Brewers tendered contracts to pitchers Josh Hader and Brandon Woodruff.

The Brewers reached 1-year deals with shortstop Orlando Arcia, catchers Omar Narvaez and Manny Pina, and first baseman Daniel Vogelbach, avoiding arbitration.
