The Brewers joined the National League in 1998 when the Tampa Bay Rays and Arizona Diamondbacks entered MLB as expansion teams. Adding a new team to each league meant each league would have an uneven number (15) of teams. To keep an even number of teams in each league, the Brewers switched from the American League to the National League.

Yes it was because of those reasons but to add the Royals were given the option first but turned it down and this was very strange because obviously the team who had move would benefit financially greatly from this move.But it was said that the Royals thought they would have a better shot at winning in the American league central rather than in the National league central
