Since the Brewers are not tanking and giving up on winning any time soon, this trade is dead before it gets started. Neither pitcher is going to help for years, if ever. Merrill is years away and if (it’s a huge IF) Milwaukee extends Adames, Merrill won’t be needed. They have Urias at 2B and Adames at SS with Turang waiting in the wings after a terrific AAA season, so no need for Kim right now. The Brewers lose one of the top pitchers in the game and get no help for years. This is an easy no for Milwaukee.
I believe the Brewers would turn this down right away. They would want much better pitching coming back to them in any trade for Burnes. This package is too weak in the areas the Brewers need for Burnes.
