Brewers' Melvin says no active trade talks ongoing


MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Brewers general manager Doug Melvin said he's not talking to any teams about trades, dispelling the notion that Milwaukee is looking for a second baseman or in the hunt for Padres starter Jake Peavy.

Melvin says tonight that the team doesn't have any trade discussions going on with anybody.

Melvin says he spoke to the agents of a few free agent infielders the day after second baseman and leadoff hitter Rickie Weeks injured his left wrist, but hasn't since. Weeks had to have surgery and is out for the season.

The Brewers have slumped lately without Weeks.

Melvin says the team will miss Weeks, but there's nothing to be done about it.

He's also repeatedly denied the Brewers are pursuing Peavy.
