Dipoto makes third trade of the season
New Mariner minor-leaguer Sal Biasi
April 14, 2019
The Mariners today traded backup catcher David Freitas to Milwaukee for 23-year-old pitcher Sal Biasi, who has been playing in the Class-A Midwest league.
Freitas spent last year with the M's and their Triple-A affiliate in Tacoma and began this season on the Mariners' big-league roster. He was sent back to Tacoma when Seattle traded for Tom Murphy. Freitas will report to Triple-A Colorado Springs as a new member of the Brewers' organization.
Biasi was drafted by the Royals in 2017 and traded to Milwaukee last year. In his two-plus pro seasons, the right-hander has a record of 8-5 and a 3.26 ERA in 116 innings, primarily as a reliever.
