Boston Red Sox and the Milwaukee Brewers made a major deal just ahead of the lockout, with Boston trading outfielder Hunter Renfroe for Jackie Bradley Jr.

The 30-year-old Renfroe has hit .237/.297/.490 with a 106 wRC+ over a six-year career that began with the San Diego Padres as well as one year with the Tampa Bay Rays and the Red Sox.

His slash line with the Sox this year was .259/.315/.501 (114 wRC+), probably his best season to date. After striking out 28% of the time with the Padres and Rays, Renfroe reduced his strikeout rate to 22.7%. It is estimated that Renfroe will earn $7.5 million in arbitration next season. He is under contract with the team through the 2023 season.

Bradley was signed by the Brewers last year largely for his glove, and he more than delivered on that front. He was a Gold Glove finalist with 12 Defensive Runs Saved and 4 Outs Above Average. Unfortunately, he wasn’t the best hitter with at least 400 plate appearances, batting.163/.236/.261 (35 wRC+). Bradley is now back in Boston.

The Brewers also sent the Red Sox two minor leaguers, the 24, hit .258 eight homers and 43 RBIs in 101 games at Class A and Double-A. David Hamilton and a 21-year-old third-round draft pick who batted .309 with nine home runs and 29 RBIs in the low minors last season, Alex Binelas.
