Brewers' Scooter Gennett: Agrees to deal to avoid arbitration
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gennett agreed to a one-year, $2.525 million contract with the Brewers on Friday, avoiding arbitration, Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports.

Gennett will receive a nice raise (from $518,100 in 2016) in his first year of arbitration eligibility. He put up his typical, serviceable numbers against righties in 2016, and while he was better against lefties, he will likely be strictly platooned again in 2017. That should keep him off the mixed-league radar for most.

Brewers' David Goforth: Sent outright to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goforth was outrighted to Triple-A Colorado Springs on Friday.

Goforth was designated for assignment in late November, and this seals his fate as he'll head to the minors to continue acting as organizational bullpen depth. He does have some big league experience to his credit, but the right-hander's numbers in the majors have been nothing to call home about, which will likely limit his ceiling to that of a middle reliever.

Brewers' Steve Geltz: Sent outright to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Geltz was outrighted to Triple-A Colorado Springs on Friday.

The Brewers claimed the right-hander off waivers less than a week ago, but it seems that his career 4.23 ERA out of major league bullpens wasn't up to snuff of a player the Brewers wanted on their 40-man roster. If he sticks in the organization, he'll likely act as organizational bullpen depth.

Brewers' Kirk Nieuwenhuis: Inks split deal with Brewers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nieuwenhuis agreed to a one-year split contract with the Brewers on Friday, avoiding arbitration, Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports.

The 29-year-old batted a lowly .209 last season, but his outstanding 14.3 percent walk rate and solid .176 ISO combined with his good defense all over the outfield made a good case for the Brewers to tender him a contract for another season. The split deal would have him making considerably less money if he gets sent back to the minors if Milwaukee chooses to kick the wheels on their younger options in the outfield, but Nieuwenhuis' versatility could work in his favor for the time being as he works to land a bench role out of spring training.

Brewers' Chris Carter: Officially designated for assignment Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

The Brewers designated Carter for assignment Tuesday, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

After revealing Monday that they had no intention of tendering Carter a contract for the 2017 season due to the expected salary increase he was due in arbitration, the Brewers signed Korean import Eric Thames to a three-year deal Tuesday to serve as their new everyday first baseman. In order to clear a 40-man spot for Thames, Carter was designated for assignment, which will allow the Brewers to see if any other teams are interested in trading for the slugger before Friday, which is the official deadline for the team to non-tender him. While Carter made a major splash for fantasy owners last season with 41 homers and 94 RBI, his sky-high strikeout rate and poor defense makes him far less attractive in real-life terms, hence the Brewers' decision to move on from him.
