The Cincinnati Reds have traded outfielder Josh Fellhauer to the Milwaukee Brewers for “cash considerations” and Milwaukee has sent him to Double-A Huntsville.

Fellhauer has been at all levels of the system, peaking at Triple-A in both 2013 and in 2014. His best season came in Double-A in 2012 when he hit .314/.409/.420 with as many walks as strikeouts. That was the same season he began to be used as more of a platoon player, avoiding many left handers. He began the 2014 season injured and returned in early May, spending a week in Louisville before being sent to Pensacola where he had been playing ever since. He has struggled this season, hitting just .239/.338/.313 on the season. He can play all three outfield spots if you need him to, though he does fit better defensively in the corners.

    Hopefully Josh will get an opportunity to get his career on track.

    Anybody know why Stephenson was pulled after 57 pitches? Walt didn’t trade him did he?

      Never mind. Blue Wahoos twitter says he got hit in the leg with a line drive. Should be ok .

      He took a liner off of the thigh, above his right knee. He seemed to be ok, walked off of the field on his own after making the play and then sitting down for about 30 seconds. Had a smile on his face as he walked off and got near the dugout.
