MILWAUKEE (AP) The Milwaukee Brewers acquired second baseman Jonathan Schoop in a trade with the Baltimore Orioles Authentic D.J. Swearinger SR Jersey , adding another option to a crowded infield as they make a push for the playoffs.The Brewers sent second baseman Jonathan Villar and two prospects to Baltimore.Schoop was the second infielder Milwaukee acquired in the last few days before Tuesday’s non-waiver trade deadline. The Brewers also dealt for third baseman Mike Moustakas from Kansas City. The plan then was for left-handed hitting third baseman Travis Shaw to shift to second base. The 26-year-old Schoop now gives Milwaukee a right-handed option at second.The Brewers have also played Hernan Perez at second of late. The upside of having so many infielders is having another quality bat available on the bench.”Really, what it comes down to for us is we think we’re getting better and we think we’re adding to our overall depth,” general manager David Stearns said.The Brewers were in Los Angeles on Tuesday for the second game of a four-game series with the Dodgers. They started the day a game back of the first-place Chicago Cubs in the NL Central but leading the NL wild-card race.Milwaukee is trying to make the playoffs for the first time since 2011.Schoop is batting .244 with 17 homers and 40 RBIs in 85 games. He is on a 12-game hitting streak, posting a .345 average with seven homers and 16 RBIs in the stretch. Schoop has hit safely in 22 of his last 23 games.In Schoop, Stearns acquired a young player still under contract for 2019. He has a guaranteed $9 million salary for next year.”We talk about control and in this case, it certainly played into the valuation of the player,” Stearns said.Besides Moustakas and Schoop, Milwaukee also traded for reliever Joakim Soria from the Chicago White Sox last week.But the Brewers did not add a starter D.J. Swearinger SR Jersey Elite , which was an area of concern following injuries to Brent Suter (elbow) and Zach Davies (shoulder). Jimmy Nelson (shoulder) remains sidelined after getting hurt late last season.Stearns said the team could still look to deal in August, though he voiced confidence in a rotation currently headlined by Jhoulys Chacin (10-3, 3.45 ERA).”I think we’ve probably had a little bit more confidence in our group throughout this year then perhaps there’s been externally and that’s fine,” Stearns said. ”Certainly we were open and active to add to that group but at this point, we were unable to do so.”Milwaukee also sent right-handed pitcher Luis Ortiz and infielder Jean Carmona to the Orioles for Schoop.The rebuilding Orioles also traded starter Kevin Gausman and reliever Darren O’Day to the Braves on Tuesday. Since the All-Star break, Baltimore has also traded away star slugger Manny Machado (Dodgers) and relievers Zach Britton (Yankees) and Brad Brach (Braves).The Orioles cut this year’s payroll by $20,077,929 with the deals of the six plus $9 million from 2019 http://www.washingtonredskinsteamonline.com/d.j.-swearinger-jersey , and added $836,290 for this year with Villar. The Orioles started with a $151 million payroll for their 40-man roster.— WASHINGTON (AP) — Gio Gonzalez ended a personal drought that spanned more than two months — and helped give the Washington Nationals a four-game split with another National League East contender.Gonzalez pitched seven strong innings for his first victory since May 28, leading the Nationals to a 6-3 victory over the Atlanta Braves on Thursday.“I think I was just happy that I got to high-five my teammates for the first time in a while,” Gonzalez said. “For me it was not the pressure, it was just the going out there and doing what I can do to go out there and try and pitch the best I can. Today it finally showed. It finally stepped to the right direction that I wanted.”The Nationals moved within 5 1/2 games of idle NL East leader Philadelphia. The Braves fell a game behind the Phillies.Gonzalez (7-8) snapped a seven-game losing streak and had gone 11 consecutive starts without a victory. He allowed six hits and one walk while striking out three. Nick Markakis‘ solo homer to lead off the second was the lone run he allowed.Atlanta starter Anibal Sanchez pitched two scoreless innings but left after getting hit in the left calf by a grounder from Michael Taylor. Manager Brian Snitker said he was hopeful Sanchez would make his next start.“It looked like Anibal was going to have one of his games starting out,” Snitker said. “He was sharp as can be. We just had a hard time getting ahold of Gio. That was the biggest thing. We couldn’t do anything with him.”Sanchez was replaced by Wes Parsons (0-1), who yielded a bases-loaded walk to Juan Soto and a sacrifice fly by Anthony Rendon as Washington went ahead in the third.Taylor homered to left in the fourth to bump Washington’s lead to 3-1, and Daniel Murphy added an RBI double in the sixth.But Parsons worked five innings in his major league debut http://www.redsoxproshops.com/authentic-craig-kimbrel-jersey , vital for a team that had two starters last only two innings during the series in Washington and heads home to face Milwaukee after a 5-3 road trip.“A winning road trip, you take that every single time,” said Atlanta first baseman Freddie Freeman, who had three hits. “Sometimes, you have to lose a battle to win the war. I thought what Wes Parsons did was absolutely huge for this ballclub. That’s going to win us games later on with a fresh bullpen.”Ronald Acuna Jr.’s one-out homer in the eighth pulled Atlanta within two runs, but the Nationals got RBIs from Ryan Zimmerman and Mark Reynolds in the bottom of the inning to make it 6-2.Washington went 7-3 on its homestand and begins a seven-game trip to face the Chicago Cubs and St. Louis.“It was big, a big win for us,” manager Dave Martinez said. “Happy flight.”HARPER SCRATCHEDWashington outfielder Bryce Harper was scratched from the lineup with right knee soreness. Atlanta reliever Dan Winkler hit Harper just below the right knee in the seventh inning on Wednesday night. Martinez said X-rays on Harper were negative.DOUBLE DEBUTParsons and Adam McCreery both made their major league debuts for Atlanta David Price Jersey , combining to pitch the last six innings. It was the first time the Braves had two pitchers debut in the same game since June 30, 2015, when Jake Brigham and Ryan Kelly did so against Washington.TRAINER’S ROOMBraves: 3B Johan Camargo was out of the starting lineup for the first time since July 14. He struck out as a pinch hitter to end the game. Charlie Culberson filled in at third for Camargo.Nationals: Martinez said RHP Stephen Strasburg (cervical nerve impingement) will throw at least one more bullpen session before the team decides whether he is ready for a minor league rehabilitation start. Strasburg has not pitched for Washington since July 20.UP NEXTBraves: RHP Kevin Gausman (0-1, 5.40 ERA) makes his second start since his acquisition from Baltimore as Atlanta returns home to open a three-game series with Milwaukee.Nationals: Washington begins a three-game series in Chicago against the Cubs with RHP Jeremy Hellickson (5-2, 3.56) getting the nod.
