line. 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 Adam Ottavino 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 Pat Valaika 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. BOSTON (AP) — It’s not collusion, it’s a “distributional problem” that has shut dozens of baseball players out of the free agent market this offseason, commissioner Rob Manfred said on Wednesday.Speaking to a group of Boston business executives, Manfred said the percentage of revenue going to the players hasn’t changed in the past 15 years or so. If players are unhappy about how it’s being spent, Manfred said Daniel Castro Jersey , he’s happy to talk to them about solutions.“The money that’s going for them in aggregate is the same,” he said at a meeting of the Boston College Chief Executives Club. “It may be that you (players) think some guys are getting too much, some guys are getting too little. You’d like to create additional opportunities. It’s up to you to explain to us what you’re looking for in terms of distribution of those dollars.”After years of growth, the total amount spent on player payroll dropped last year for the first time since 2010 and only the second time since 2002. What’s bothered the players, though, has been the slow market for free agents like Bryce Harper and Manny Machado.The lack of a bidding war for two of the game’s stars left them waiting until after the start of spring training for other offers. A couple of dozen other free agents remain unsigned, and some players and agents accused owners of colluding to keep salaries down.But Manfred preferred to look at the result: 10 years and $300 million for Machado, and 13 years and $330 million for Harper.“In case you missed it, we did spend 600 million bucks — 630 to be exact — on two players last week. Set some new records,” Manfred said in an on-stage conversation with Red Sox president Sam Kennedy. “Players are still getting these mega-contracts.”Manfred said he would be willing to discuss changes now  http://www.rockiesfanproshop.com/authentic-chad-bettis-jerse y , even though the collective bargaining agreement doesn’t expire until after the 2021 season.“But (players) have to identify for us what it is that you see as the problem in the system,” he said.Manfred’s comments came as owners and players neared an agreement to allow teams to carry an extra player for most of the season starting in 2020 and for other changes to the way rosters are managed. The deal would include a limit on September call-ups — lowering the maximum roster size from 40 players to 28 — and on the number of pitchers would be designed to end the parade of relievers that can cause games to run long. Baseball also agreed not pursue a pitch clock through the 2021 season.People familiar with the negotiations discussed details of the agreement with The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the agreement had not yet been finalized.“Baseball, like every other institution, has to thoughtfully approach change to address concerns that fans raise,” Manfred said. “One of the things that our research tells us is that the length of the games is an issue and one of the causes of that is relief pitching changes. And I think we have to be open to thinking about changes in that area.”Players have proposed changes such as expanding the designated hitter to the National League and altering the amateur draft to discourage teams from tanking in order to improve their draft position.“It’s always important to make small deals that allow you to address bigger issues,” Manfred said. “And we’re working hard to do that.”Baseball announced in December a new deal that would allow Cuban players to sign major league contracts without defecting. The agreement came despite President Donald Trump’s pledge to undo President Barack Obama’s 2014 decision expand U.S-Cuba relations.Manfred said the previous administration was more consistent to deal with.“It has been more challenging in terms of working with the Trump administration,” Manfred said. “We’ve worked with them already on several projects. It’s been a little difficult but generally positive as well.”
