Brewers Trade Hall to Mariners
Next game: Friday, August 21st at Washington
DETROIT (AP) -- The Milwaukee Brewers have traded third baseman Bill Hall to the Seattle Mariners.
The Mariners sent minor league pitcher Ruben Flores to the Brewers on Wednesday.
Hall, who hit 35 homers in 2006, was designated for assignment by Milwaukee last week after hitting .201 in 76 games this season. He is expected to join the Mariners on Thursday in Detroit.
Flores went 3-2 with a 4.39 ERA in 44 games for two Class A teams.
