Brewers trade prospect Brett Lawrie to Jays for pitcher Marcum

Posted:

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (AP) -- A person familiar with the deal tells The Associated Press that the Toronto Blue Jays have agreed to trade pitcher Shaun Marcum to the Milwaukee Brewers for infield prospect Brett Lawrie.

The person spoke on condition of anonymity Monday because the trade had not been officially announced.

Marcum started for the Blue Jays on opening day last season and went 13-8 with a 3.64 ERA. The right-hander turns 29 next week.

Lawrie is a 20-year-old second baseman from Canada and was rated among Milwaukee's top minor leaguers.
