The Marlins continued their rebuilding process on Thursday, trading Silver Slugger Award-winning outfielder Christian Yelich to the Brewers in exchange for three of Milwaukee's top 14 prospects, according to MLB Pipeline, and four overall -- including outfielder Lewis Brinson.
The 23-year-old Brinson, who has 21 games of big league experience, is ranked by MLB Pipeline as the game's 13th-best prospect. Middle infielder Isan Diaz (Brewers' No. 6 prospect; No. 86 overall), outfielder Monte Harrison (Brewers' No. 14) and right-handed pitching prospsect Jordan Yamamoto are also headed to Miami.
Yelich, 26, had voiced his frustration with the Marlins' direction this offseason after Miami traded fellow outfielders Giancarlo Stanton and Marcell Ozuna to the Yankees and Cardinals, respectively. Yelich hit .282 with 18 home runs and 81 RBIs for the Marlins in 2017.
