The Brewers acquired Alex Claudio in a trade with The Rangers. Milwaukee gave up a ‘Competitive Balance Round A’ Draft Pick (Per T.R. Sullivan at MLB.com). These types of picks are given to the 10 lowest-revenue clubs each year (i.e. the smallest markets). David Stearns turned and used this “extra” pick on the 26 year old Claudio… recognizing the risks outweigh the potential rewards.
