Brewers like young pieces, keep eye on relievers
MILWAUKEE (AP) The Brewers addressed a need at the non-waiver trade deadline without giving up one of their top young players, holding to a philosophy this season that has carried them into a pennant race.
Milwaukee picked up left-handed hitter Gerardo Parra from Arizona for two minor leaguers, and may still look around in August to add a right-handed reliever.
Otherwise, general manager Doug Melvin appears just as content watching the organization's home-grown talent play integral roles in the chase for an NL Central title. Those players include left fielder Khris Davis, second baseman Scooter Gennett and starting pitcher Wily Peralta.
