Mike Moustakas' time in Kansas City has come to an end just days before Tuesday's non-waiver trade deadline. The Milwaukee Brewers announced Saturdaythat they have acquired the 29-year-old from the Royals in exchange for minor leaguers Brett Phillips and Jorge Lopez.Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com first reported the news.Moustakas had been a member of the Kansas City organization since the Royals took him with the No. 2 overall pick in the 2007 MLB draft. He leaves town having piled up a .251 batting average http://www.redsfanproshop.com/authentic-brandon-finnegan-jersey , 139 home runsand 441RBI in 934 games in his seven-plus seasons with the Royals andrankingeighthin franchise history in long balls.When it drafted Moustakas, Kansas City was trying to break a playoff drought that had lasted more than two decades. It took some time, but the core of Moustakas, Eric Hosmer, Alex Gordon and Lorenzo Cain eventually snapped it in 2014. One year later, they helped raise the club's second World Series banner.Unfortunately for Royals fans, the core became too expensive to keep. Cain and Hosmer left in free agency during the offseason, while Moustakas eventually returned after having a tough time on the open market. He turned down a $17.4 million qualifying offer at the beginning of the offseason, according to Jason Beck of MLB.com, and wound up signing a one-year Reggie Sanders Jersey , $6.5 million deal with a mutual option for 2019.Moustakas will now change uniforms for the first time in his career and have the opportunity to jump right into a pennant race. With six home runs in 31 career postseason games, he has proved he can come through in big moments.Milwaukee boldly boosted its outfield during the offseason by acquiring Christian Yelich and Cain. While those moves helped establish the Brewers as contenders, they find themselves in a battle in the National League Central.They hope adding an All-Star and a champion like Moustakas can put them over the top.Travis Shaw (19home runs) has provided pop at the hot corner, but Moustakas is a more established player. The Brewers can shift Shaw to second to give themselves one of the most powerful infields in baseball, with Moustakas and first baseman Jesus Aguilar (25 home runs) also bringing the lumber. They could use Shaw at first and in the outfield as well.Milwaukee was in the Manny Machado sweepstakes before the Baltimore Orioles shipped the All-Star to the Los Angeles Dodgers. Although Machado was the prize of the deadline, Moustakas can be a game-changer as well. A look at what’s happening around the majors today:SALE ON HOLDRed Sox ace Chris Sale was still feeling weak and trying to regain lost weight after a stomach illness forced him to spend a night in the hospital after he started the AL Championship Series opener against the Astros. Boston had hoped to start Sale in Game 5 on Thursday night, but instead will give him a couple extra days to recover while planning to pitch him in Game 6 on Saturday in Boston, if necessary. David Price will start in Sale’s place Thursday night on three days’ rest as the Red Sox try to win the pennant.Sale threw in the outfield for 10-15 minutes Wednesday before Game 4 in Houston, but manager Alex Cora said the lanky left-hander didn’t throw a bullpen as planned.Boston leads the best-of-seven set 3-1 and is one win from making its first trip to the World Series since winning the 2013 title. Game 1 winner Justin Verlander is scheduled to pitch for the Astros with their season on the line.DEFENDING CHAMPSThe Astros are still under scrutiny, even after Major League Baseball absolved the World Series champions of any wrongdoing after a credentialed Houston employee was caught pointing his cellphone into the opposing dugouts during playoff games in Cleveland and Boston. MLB says the Astros were conducting surveillance Johnny Bench Jersey , not spying, but the incidents have raised questions about sign-stealing and ethics in the age of high-speed, high-definition cameras.Boston executive Dave Dombrowski also did not think the employee was stealing signs, but he was upset by Houston’s suspicion of the Red Sox and the fact that the Astros weren’t punished because “there was a violation.”“I don’t like the implication that the Boston Red Sox were doing anything illegal,” Dombrowski said, “and I don’t think that the issue is actually closed from Major League Baseball, from what I’ve been advised from the commissioner’s office, so there’s a lot more steps that are attached to this.”YOU, AGAINThe Dodgers and Brewers return to Milwaukee for an off day in the NL Championship Series. Game 6 is Friday night at Miller Park, and the Brewers plan to start Wade Miley again as they attempt to avoid elimination. Miley walked Cody Bellinger to open Game 5 on Wednesday before getting pulled in an unusual bit of strategy by manager Craig Counsell.The left-hander would become the first pitcher to start consecutive games for his team in one postseason since George Earnshaw of the Philadelphia Athletics in the 1930 World Series against the Cardinals http://www.redsfanproshop.com/authentic-joe-morgan-jersey , according to STATS. Miley pitched 5 2/3 shutout innings in Game 2 vs. the Dodgers, allowing two hits.Milwaukee starters have tossed just 14 innings in the NLCS, the lowest total ever through five games, the Elias Sports Bureau said.“We’re in a good spot, man,” Counsell said. “We’re going back home, to me, in a position of strength.”Hyun-Jin Ryu pitches for the Dodgers, one win from making consecutive World Series appearances for the first time since 1977-78.
