Brewers hire Justin Smoke, take over Daniel Vogelbach

Brewers hire Justin Smoke, take over Daniel Vogelbach

The Brewers hired the first baseman Justin Smoke For assignment and earned 1B / DH Daniel Vogelbach From Blue Jays, Ken Rosenthal of Athletic Reports.

Switch-hitting Smoke has had very good years with Blue Jays since 2017-18, but his production dropped in the ’19s during his last campaign in Toronto. Hoping for a bounce-back effort, the Brewers signed the 33-year-old Smoke to M5MM guarantee last season, but the deal did not pay dividends to the club. Smoke logged an ugly .186 / .262 / .381 line with five home runs at 126 plate shows this year. Many thanks to Smoke, the first base was a black hole for Milwaukee Z Garco (Those who started the second highest there for the club) posted an amazing product on a small sample.

Vogelbach may now sink into the mix first for the Brewers, but he has not stood there between Seattle and Toronto this year, instead playing all his games as DH. Although Vogelbach was a Mariners all-star a year ago, his numbers plummeted in the second half, and he certainly hasn’t given up a DH-caliber bat this season. Between M and Jace, he hit .088 / .246 / .211 with two home runs in 69 plate appearances. Toronto appointed Vogelbach as a member of the team after four at-bats.
