The Milwaukee Brewers continued to shuffle their roster under new General Manager David Stearns, sending first baseman Adam Lind to the Seattle Mariners on Wednesday in exchange for pitchers Daniel Missaki, Carlos Herrera and Freddy Peralta.
Missaki, a 19-year-old righty from Brazil, began the 2015 season with Low-A Clinton in the Midwest League, making six starts for the LumberKings before undergoing Tommy John surgery in May. Averaging more than a strikeout per inning through his first three minor league seasons, Missaki has shown decent command, walking just 26 batters in 106 innings of work while going 7-6 with a 3.40 ERA.
Herrera, a 6’2″ right-hander from the Dominican Republic, just turned 18 in October and made his pro debut last season with the Mariners affiliate in the Dominican Summer League. In 14 games, all starts, he went 4-2 with a 3.26 earned run average.
Peralta, a 19-year old from the Dominican Republic, is the third right-handed pitcher in the deal. He spent last season pitching for Seattle’s Arizona League team, going 2-3 with a 4.11 earned run average in 11 appearances, nine of which were starts. In 57 innings of work, Peralta recorded 67 strikeouts while walking just eight.
Lind, 32, was acquired by Milwaukee in November of 2014 from the Toronto Blue Jays in exchange for pitcher Marco Estrada. In 149 games last season, the left-handed hitting slugger posted a .277 batting average with 32 doubles, 20 home runs and 87 runs batted in.
