REDS, BREWERS SWAPP PLAYERS

The Cincinnati Reds have traded pitchers Ron Robinson and Bob Sebra to the Milwaukee Brewers for outfielder Glenn Braggs and infielder Billy Bates, the Reds announced Saturday.

Robinson, 28, was 2-2 with a 4.88 ERA in six games for the Reds. He was the author of a near-perfect game in 1988, losing it on a two-out single in the ninth inning by Montreal's Wallace Johnson.

Sebra, 28, had been playing for the Reds' Triple-A Nashville affiliate and will be assigned to the Brewers' farm club in Denver.

Braggs, 27, was hitting .248 with three homers and 13 RBIs in 37 games for the Brewers.

Bates, 26, will move from Denver to Nashville. At Denver, he was hitting .327 in 25 games. He began the season with Milwaukee, hitting .103 in 14 games.

Robinson is scheduled to pitch Tuesday when the Brewers play at Baltimore. Sebra is going to Denver.

Milwaukee general manager Harry Dalton said Robinson, scheduled to pitch Tuesday against Baltimore, is having no problems with a surgically repaired elbow.

"The Doctor's report is good," Dalton said.
