For the Milwaukee Brewers to compete this year, the team’s bullpen must continue to perform at elite levels. Unfortunately, the outlook of the centerpiece of the perpetually solid group does not look good. Star closer Devin Williams will meet with a spine specialist on Wednesday to take a second look at his sore back. A sore back has limited Williams to just two appearances this spring, and an MRI did not reveal anything serious. New manager Pat Murphy told reporters that Williams’ back has been bothering him all spring and that the team hopes the specialist will confirm there is no serious i ..read more

Believe it or not, the Major League Baseball regular season kicks off later this month. While many players still linger on the free agent market, the slow offseason produced many trades that evaluators have spent weeks analyzing. However, transactions can’t be rightfully graded until seasons play out. Roster construction lacks an exact science, which means guarantees do not exist. Moves that initially seem great often turn out disastrous. Moves that fly under the radar often prove crucial to a team’s success. With the true evaluation period kicking off in just a few weeks, let’s look back at ..read more

The Milwaukee Brewers are signing free agent catcher Gary Sánchez, reports Jon Heyman of The New York Post. Sánchez will earn $7 million on a one-year deal plus a mutual option.

Yet another prominent player is now off the free-agent market. According to ESPN’s Jeff Passan, Rhys Hoskins agreed to a two-year, $34 million deal with the Milwaukee Brewers, which includes an opt-out after this season. 2023 was an unfortunate year for the 30-year-old. On March 23rd, in a spring training game against the Detroit Tigers, Hoskins suffered a torn ACL. He would undergo surgery and miss the entire 2023 season. Then, the Phillies announced that Bryce Harper will play first base full-time in 2024. This left Hoskins no other choice but to sign elsewhere. This is a surprisingly decen ..read more

What the Brewers Should Do With Corbin Burnes Amid Trade Rumors

Corbin Burnes is one year away from being a free agent. Given how much he will command on the open market next winter, many believe the Milwaukee Brewers will trade him this year, either before or during the season. Unless Milwaukee opts for the latter then find themselves in a playoff race by July. It would make it far more difficult to deal their ace at that point in the season. The Brewers have desires to contend next season, but the front office presents itself with an interesting dilemma. Do they move Burnes now, or play out the first half of the season and revisit the situation in July ..read more
