Bob Nightengale of USA TODAY reports that the Brewers have announced to other teams they’re willing to sell. With a 5-17 record, the Brewers’ hopes for the 2015 season may already be dashed. They have the worst starting rotation ERA in the National League, have committed the second-most errors in the league, and are sporting the NL’s third-worst offense in terms of average runs scored per game.

Nightengale writes that the Brewers are making veterans Kyle Lohse, Matt Garza, and Aramis Ramirez available. Jon Heyman of CBS Sports adds that a rival executive sees Carlos Gomez, Jean Segura, Khris Davis, Gerardo Parra, and Francisco Rodriguez as marketable as well.
