The Milwaukee Brewers make not one, but two, major acquisitions. In addition to trading for Christian Yelich, the Brewers sign veteran OF Lorenzo Cain to a five-year, $80 million contract. Last season, Cain hit 15 HRs, 49 RBIs, and stole 26 bases (slashed .300/.363./.440). The 31-year old came up through the Brewers farm system before being traded in a package for Zack Greinke in 2011; he ended up reaching back-to-back World Series, winning the second time around in 2015. Milwaukee has a surplus of outfielders at the big league level which includes Cain, Christian Yelich, Ryan Braun, Domingo Santana, Brett Phillips, and Keon Broxton. From our Insider Adam McCalvy
