Milwaukee gets an innings-eater starter and the future at third base.
This would be another package where the Milwaukee Brewers want a young pitcher with a couple more years of team control.
Kremer has a career 4.35 ERA and a 1.34 WHIP.
He had a 4.12 ERA and a 4.51 FIP while he finished 2023 as a 1.5 fWAR player. He threw 172 innings last season.
His fastball velocity has increased every season he has pitched in the Majors. He will mix in a cutter, a sinker, and a changeup.
The Orioles get a top-of-the-rotation pitcher in Burnes while the Brewers get a solid innings-eater starter.
Maybe the Crew’s pitch lab can get Kremer to reach his full potential.
Mayo is Baltimore’s fourth-best prospect who can play third and first. He is blocked at third with Gunnar Henderson although he might be the player the Orioles go with at first base.
Mayo can mash the ball.
He clubbed 29 home runs between Double-A and Triple-A. He finished with a .290 average and a .973 OPS. Mayo had an OPS of 1.027 in 78 games at Double-A. It only dipped to .905 at Triple-A.
He has a strong arm to play third base. He will be 22 when the 2024 season starts. Mayo might need some at-bats in the minors, but getting him back in this deal has the potential to solve first or third base for the rest of the decade.
