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.

Nationals shortstop Trea Turner hit for the cycle on Tuesday night against the Rockies, becoming the first National to hit for the cycle since, well, himself back on April 25, 2017… against the Rockies.

Turner led off the bottom of the first inning with a home run to center field off of Peter Lambert. He singled in the second, tripled to lead off the fourth, and hit an RBI double as part of an eight-run seventh inning to complete the cycle.

Turner is the fourth player to hit for the cycle this season. The others:

After completing the cycle, Turner is hitting .286/.343/.494 with eight home runs, 25 RBI, 41 runs scored, and 20 stolen bases in 277 plate appearances this season.
