A look back at Brewers' trades in July under Melvin

If the history of Doug Melvin's tenure as general manager of the Milwaukee Brewers leaves any indication, the odds of a trade happening before Thursday's non-waiver deadline are high.

Nothing ordinary about Brewers' international signing Lara

MILWAUKEE -- Balls fly into the second deck at Miller Park regularly during batting practice, as numerous big-league hitters have put on impressive displays over the years. But a 16-year-old?

Starter Jean Segura has failed to live up to high expectations, posting a disappointing .585 OPS and 56 wRC+. Backups Jeff Bianchi (2 wRC+, sub-Mendoza .186 slugging) and the recently reacquired Irving...
