Brewers trade Kolten Wong, cash to Mariners for Winker, Toro

Date:

The Milwaukee Brewers couldn’t wait until the baseball winter meetings to make a deal.

The team traded second baseman Kolten Wong to the Seattle Mariners on Friday in exchange for outfielder Jesse Winker and infielder Abraham Toro. The Brewers will also return money to the Mariners, with reports totaling $1.75 million.

“Obviously Kolten was a big part of some really good Brewers teams and it’s always hard to move away from a guy like that,” said general manager Matt Arnold. “I spoke to him before and he had great things to say about our organization and I feel good about what he was able to achieve for us here.

“At the same time, it’s exciting for us to have access to guys like Jesse Winker and Abraham Toro, to help us in our quest for what we want to accomplish here by bringing a championship here to Milwaukee.”
