Looper officially a Brewer

Braden Looper has officially signed with the Milwaukee Brewers, the Cardinals losing one of their most stable starters when it came to health.

Looper, known as a workhorse pitcher, can solidify any starting rotation plagued with either health issues or a starting rotation that has a few arms that can't seem to go beyond the fifth inning.

Since the Brewers lost CC Sabathia, they've been in dire need of an arm in the starting rotation that can put in plenty of frames, especially considering the injury to Ben Sheets.
