Brewers nearing deal with Jays for Marcum

On Sunday night the Brewers were putting the finishing touches on a trade for Blue Jays right-hander Shaun Marcum.


Milwaukee general manager Doug Melvin did not immediately respond to a telephone message, but two sources confirmed that the deal was in the works. The Brewers would send multiple prospects to Toronto, one of the sources said, and the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported that one of them was 20-year-old, Canadian-born infielder Brett Lawrie, considered Milwaukee’s top offensive prospect.

Melvin did talk to the Journal Sentinel, but only said that, “I can’t say anything about it, really. It’s not completed yet.”
