Brewers Get Rob Deer in Trade for 2 Players

December 19, 1985|Associated Press

MILWAUKEE — The Milwaukee Brewers have acquired outfielder Rob Deer from the San Francisco Giants for minor league pitchers Dean Freeland and Eric Pilkington, the American League team announced Wednesday.

A rookie last season, Deer batted .185 with 8 home runs and 20 runs batted in in 78 games.

Deer, 25, is native of Orange. He will be assigned to the Brewers' Vancouver farm club.

A 1978 graduate of Canyon High School, where he was an all-Century League selection in football and baseball, Deer was voted the Texas League's Best Defensive Outfielder in 1983.

While playing for the Giants' Triple-A team in Phoenix, he led the Pacific Coast League in homers during most of the 1984 season before being called up for 13 major league games.
