    From a Brewer perspective I like this trade except Narvaez hit .152 and McGuire hit .175 against left handed pitchers so I think the Brewers would still need a right handed hitting catcher. I suppose it’s possible they could carry 3 catchers but that could be a negative for the active roster. For the long term this is a good trade for the brew crew. Four years of relatively cheap control. Narvaez becomes a FA in 2023. I admit I don’t know McGuire’s defensive skill set so that could be a factor (pro or con) in this trade.

      McGuire isn’t an ideal partner for Narvaez, you are completely correct on that one. Narvaez is likely in his last season in Milwaukee though and the Brewers should be looking to acquire a platoon partner for Mario Feliciano. McGuire would be a good choice. McGuire is also a defense first catcher, so he could provide some cover for Feliciano’s defensive development. Toronto has a log jam at catcher, so expect them to move one of their catchers. Danny Jansen, Alejandro Kirk, Reese McGuire, and Gabriel Moreno are all ready to contribute. That’s a great problem to have when there aren’t many catching options in free agency.

    Good to hear about McGuire’s defense ability. We shall see what happens.
