Melky Cabrera: Trade to Milwaukee Hits Snag

Posted on December 11, 2008 at 11:06 AM


The trade that was supposed to send Cabrera to Milwaukee for Mike Cameron has hit a snag, the Newark Star-Ledger reports.


The Brewers became upset when the Yankees asked them to pay a portion of Cameron's $10 million salary for 2009, just a day after New York landed CC Sabathia with a seven-year, $161 million deal by outbidding the Brewers by $61 million (and two years). The deal isn't completely dead, however, as the Brewers are believed to be interested in Ian Kennedy and the Yankees would like to use Bill Hall as a super utility player, so perhaps if the Brewers can unload Hall's contract and get a potential young arm for their rotation, they'd reconsider paying some of Cameron's deal.
