MILWAUKEE (AP) The Milwaukee Brewers acquired second baseman Jonathan Schoop in a trade with the Baltimore Orioles [url=http://www.metsfanproshop.com/authentic-jay-bruce-jersey]Jay Bruce Jersey[/url] , adding another option to a crowded infield as they make a push for the playoffs.The Brewers sent second baseman Jonathan Villar and two prospects to Baltimore.Schoop was the second infielder Milwaukee acquired in the last few days before Tuesday’s non-waiver trade deadline. The Brewers also dealt for third baseman Mike Moustakas from Kansas City. The plan then was for left-handed hitting third baseman Travis Shaw to shift to second base. The 26-year-old Schoop now gives Milwaukee a right-handed option at second.The Brewers have also played Hernan Perez at second of late. The upside of having so many infielders is having another quality bat available on the bench.”Really, what it comes down to for us is we think we’re getting better and we think we’re adding to our overall depth,” general manager David Stearns said.The Brewers were in Los Angeles on Tuesday for the second game of a four-game series with the Dodgers. They started the day a game back of the first-place Chicago Cubs in the NL Central but leading the NL wild-card race.Milwaukee is trying to make the playoffs for the first time since 2011.Schoop is batting .244 with 17 homers and 40 RBIs in 85 games. He is on a 12-game hitting streak, posting a .345 average with seven homers and 16 RBIs in the stretch. Schoop has hit safely in 22 of his last 23 games.In Schoop, Stearns acquired a young player still under contract for 2019. He has a guaranteed $9 million salary for next year.”We talk about control and in this case, it certainly played into the valuation of the player,” Stearns said.Besides Moustakas and Schoop, Milwaukee also traded for reliever Joakim Soria from the Chicago White Sox last week.But the Brewers did not add a starter, which was an area of concern following injuries to Brent Suter (elbow) and Zach Davies (shoulder). Jimmy Nelson (shoulder) remains sidelined after getting hurt late last season.Stearns said the team could still look to deal in August, though he voiced confidence in a rotation currently headlined by Jhoulys Chacin (10-3, 3.45 ERA).”I think we’ve probably had a little bit more confidence in our group throughout this year then perhaps there’s been externally and that’s fine [url=http://www.diamondbacksfanproshop.com/authentic-fernando-rodney-jersey]http://www.diamondbacksfanproshop.com/authentic-fernando-rodney-jersey[/url ] ,” Stearns said. ”Certainly we were open and active to add to that group but at this point, we were unable to do so.”Milwaukee also sent right-handed pitcher Luis Ortiz and infielder Jean Carmona to the Orioles for Schoop.The rebuilding Orioles also traded starter Kevin Gausman and reliever Darren O’Day to the Braves on Tuesday. Since the All-Star break, Baltimore has also traded away star slugger Manny Machado (Dodgers) and relievers Zach Britton (Yankees) and Brad Brach (Braves).The Orioles cut this year’s payroll by $20,077,929 with the deals of the six plus $9 million from 2019, and added $836,290 for this year with Villar. The Orioles started with a $151 million payroll for their 40-man roster.— Daniel Shirey/Getty ImagesMiami Marlins pitcherJose Urena has been suspended six games and fined an undisclosed amount of money for hitting Atlanta Braves outfielderRonald Acuna Jr. with the first pitch of Wednesday's game, according to Joe Frisaro of MLB.com.Urena hit Acuna, who had led off the previous three games against the Fish with a home run, with a 97 mph fastball to start the game, leading to both benches clearing:Urena was ejected for his actions [url=http://www.metsfanproshop.com/authentic-todd-frazier-jersey]http://www.metsfanproshop.com/authentic-todd-frazier-jersey[/url ] , and Acuna ultimately left the game after the first inning due to a left elbow injury. The CT scan came back normal, and the rookie was back in the lineup Thursday.Urena discussed the incident afterward:"I try to come out to the game to get deep into a game," Urena said, perMark Bowmanof MLB.com. "The first pitch you hit somebody. [The umpires] knew that was a mistake and they let me warm up. But those people, they got crazy and they started to attack me, and I don't know what they were looking for. I just backed up and tried to stick to my game plan."Acuna entered the gamehaving eight round-trippers in his last eight appearances, including adinger in a franchise-record-tying five consecutive games. And while he left Wednesday's game without hitting a homer, the Braves later made it known that his streak was stillofficially active.The beaning seems to stem from the fact that pitchers are having a hard time containing Acuna鈥攁nd that reasoning didn't sit well with Atlanta.Braves manager Brian Snitker said, via Bowman:"To get hit like that when all he's doing is playing the game, he's not doing anything to show anybody up. He's just playing the game. He's a young, talented kid. That's a shame that happened. What happens if they hit him there and it breaks his elbow and he's done for the year? With what we're trying to accomplish here and where we're at [url=http://www.metsfanproshop.com/authentic-david-wright-jersey]David Wright Jersey[/url] , there's no reason for that. I mean, this is a game."Acuna has made himself a legitimate National League Rookie of the Year candidate by hitting .288 with 19 home runs and 43 RBI in 69 games. That impressive start to his career has helped the Braves surprise the baseball world by holding a two-game lead in the NL East at 68-51.Meanwhile, the Marlins are 22 games back in the division at 48-75. In the same breath, it's been a rough year for Urena, as the right-hander has gone 3-12 with a 4.74 ERA in 24 starts. He is tied for fifth in the majors with 11 hit batsmen.Barring an appeal, Urena's suspension is expected to begin Friday. He could potentially miss one start as a result, or the Marlins could tweak the rotation to make it so his next outing only gets pushed back a couple of days.PerMLB.com, Atlanta first base coach Eric Young also received a one-game suspension and an undisclosed fine for his actions in the benches-clearing altercation.
