The Milwaukee Brewers are attempting to shore up their bullpen by trading for the Tigers’ relief pitcher Daniel Norris. The exact details regarding whom the Tigers are getting in return for Norris have not been made public at time of writing.
ESPN’s Jeff Passan reported the news via Twitter on Friday afternoon.

Norris is having a down season, but has proven to be pretty reliable in the past. His win-loss record sits at 1-3, while his ERA is a career high, sitting at 5.89. On the bright side, he has appeared in 38 games and only allowed four home runs.
The Brewers will be Norris’ third team, after playing for the Blue Jays in 2014 and part of 2015, spending every season since then with the Tigers. Milwaukee currently holds the best record in the NL Central. They are clearly hoping some late-inning pitching will help them hold the top spot.
