Posted By Blake Bass On August 30, 2013 @ 11:22 am In MLB | No Comments
The Brewers announced, via press release, that they have traded right-hander John Axford to the Cardinals. The Cardinals also announced the trade, via Twitter , adding that they will send a player to be named later to Milwaukee.
Axford, 30, has a 4.45 ERA with 8.9 K/9, 3.8 BB/9 and a 43.8 percent ground-ball rate in 54 2/3 innings for the Brewers this season. He lost the closer’s role almost immediately this season and saw his ERA soar over 10.00 but rebounded in May, June and most of July. His struggles have returned of late, as he’s allowed runs in seven of his past 13 appearances, pitching to an 8.25 ERA in that time.
