The Diamondbacks traded right-handed pitcher Charles Brewer to the Cleveland Indians in exchange for cash considerations on Saturday.
Brewer posted a 4.99 ERA with a 6.84 K/9 over 126.1 innings for Triple-A Reno last year. He's been stuck at Triple-A for a few seasons now as his command remains spotty and once he does adjust, his strikeouts suffer. The Indians are hoping that he can soon put it all together, but this is a low-risk move for them. If he does put it together, we could see him as a spot-starter later in the season.
