Tyler White hasn’t played in the majors since 2019, and he spent 2020 playing overseas in the Korean Baseball Organization. After a stint at Triple-A with the Toronto Blue Jays last season, White signed as a minor league free agent for Milwaukee this year. Across 75 games he posted a .788 OPS with 13 homers and a 69/50 K/BB. The Brewers decided this was depth they wouldn’t be using and sent White to Atlanta.
Omar Narvaez has been on the injured list since August 4th with a left quad strain. He was signed to a one-year, $5 million deal this offseason and has played in 60 games for Milwaukee. His .687 OPS checks in at a 94 OPS+, just below league average. A veteran behind the dish, Narvaez is definitely someone that Craig Counsell would like to have back in the mix sooner rather than later.
At the trade deadline, Milwaukee swung a deal for Trevor Rosenthal. After he was signed by the San Francisco Giants, Rosenthal never wound up pitching before being dealt to his new team. Suffering a hamstring injury during his showcase, the injury needed to heal before he could return to action.
Rosenthal last pitched in the majors during the 2020 season, but his velocity showed well during a session for scouts earlier this summer. When healthy, he’s been an exceptional relief asset being able to contribute with strikeouts and high velocity.
Milwaukee eagerly awaits the return of both veterans to the 26-man roster.
