Brewers Acquiring Outfielder Mark Canha from the Mets

I can’t help but wonder if this is related to the escalating Jeimer Candelario rumors with the Cubs, because the Brewers were possibly also looking at Candelario.

They are getting Mark Canha instead:

Canha, 34, has seen his production drop quite a bit this year with the Mets – he’s not alone – but he has still been an above-average overall bat on the year and can play everywhere in the outfield, plus first and third if needed. It’s a nice add for the Brewers. The cost is reportedly a minor league pitcher. More soon.

UPDATE: Jarvis has the look of a decent Double-A pitching prospect, but he ranks only 30th in the system according to MLB Pipeline:
