The Brewers have bolstered their already strong bullpen by acquiring righty reliever Joakim Soria from the White Sox for lefty Kodi Medeiros and righty Wilber Perez.

Soria has a 2.56 ERA, 1.16 WHIP, and 49/10 K/BB ratio in 38.2 innings as the White Sox’ closer this season, saving 16 games in 19 attempts. He won’t close in Milwaukee, but he’ll be a nice setup guy from the right side, complementing Josh Hader who is a lefty.

Medeiros was the Brewers first round selection back in 2014 and currently pitches at Double-A Biloxi. Perez, 20, is was signed out of the Dominican Republic and currently pitches in the Dominican Summer League.
