Brewers' Wade Miley: Returns to Milwaukee
Miley agreed Monday with the Brewers on a one-year, $7 million contract, Jesse Rogers of ESPN.com reports.
Miley is guaranteed $8.5 million in the deal, and the contract includes a $12 million mutual option or $1.5 million buyout for 2025. The veteran southpaw is coming off a strong showing for Milwaukee in 2023, having collected a 3.14 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 79:38 K:BB over 120.1 innings. He turned 37 years old in November and can't be counted on to make every start, but Miley should offer the Brewers a high floor when healthy.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Joe Ross: Gets MLB deal from Brewers
Ross signed a one-year, major-league contract with the Brewers on Monday, Robert Murray of FanSided.com reports.
Ross has thrown a combined 17 innings over the last two seasons -- none of them at the major-league level -- following a second Tommy John surgery. However, that hasn't stopped the Brewers from handing the right-hander a major-league deal in hopes that he's healthy and ready to contribute in 2024. Ross, 30, holds a career 4.26 ERA and 403:141 K:BB over 443.1 innings at the big-league level.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Jackson Chourio: Will get chance to make roster
Brewers general manager Matt Arnold said Monday that Chourio will have a chance to make the team's Opening Day roster in 2024, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.
Arnold's comments came after Chourio officially signed an eight-year, $82 million contract extension with Milwaukee that includes $25 million club options for the 2032 and 2033 seasons. The expectation is that the record-breaking contract clears the path for the 19-year-old to break camp with the big club as its everyday center fielder, and while Arnold cautioned that there is "nothing guaranteed" for Chourio, it would be a surprise at this point if it doesn't happen. Chourio slashed .283/.338/.467 with 22 home runs and 44 stolen bases between Double-A Biloxi and Triple-A Nashville in 2023.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Jackson Chourio: Passes physical, deal official
Chourio passed his physical Sunday, making his eight-year, $82 million contract with the Brewers official, Jon Heyman of the New York Post reports.
Chourio recently agreed to a record-breaking deal for a prospect and will officially be under a long-term contract with the Brewers before ever taking an at-bat in the majors. The deal has $82 million guaranteed but can max out at $142.5 million over 10 years if he has his options exercised and reaches benchmarks in his contract. He slashed .282/.338/.467 with 22 home runs, 91 RBI, 88 runs and 43 steals over 128 games between Double-A Biloxi and Triple-A Nashville last season, and he'll have a good chance to make the Brewers' Opening Day roster in 2024 following his new contract....

Brewers' Jackson Chourio: Deal could max out at $140 million
Chourio's contract with the Brewers could max out at around $140 million over 10 years, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.
McCalvy reports that Chourio would be guaranteed at least $82 million over eight years and could net approximately $140 million over 10 years if two team options are exercised and he reaches all of his incentives. The record-breaking contract is expected to become official Friday as long as a physical doesn't raise any red flags. Chourio, 19, hit .283/.338/.467 with 22 home runs and 44 stolen bases between Double-A Biloxi and Triple-A Nashville in 2023. He'll have a good shot to be part of the Brewers' Opening Day roster in 2024.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Jackson Chourio: Agrees to record-breaking extension
Chourio and the Brewers are expected to finalize an eight-year contract extension worth nearly $80 million Thursday, Jon Heyman of the New York Post reports.
The deal, which also includes two team options, is the largest contract ever for a player who has yet to reach the majors, easily topping Luis Robert's six-year, $50 million pact. Chourio, 19, began the 2023 season at Double-A Biloxi and finished it at Triple-A Nashville, slashing .283/.338/.467 with 22 home runs and 44 stolen bases between the two stops. The long-term contract extension greatly increases Chourio's chances of breaking spring training as a member of the Brewers' Opening Day roster.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Sam Carlson: Signs with Milwaukee
Carlson signed a minor-league contract with the Brewers on Wednesday.
Carlson moved to the bullpen full-time last season with the Mariners' High-A affiliate, and he posted a 5.25 ERA and 1.21 WHIP while striking out 61 batters across 48 innings. The 24-year-old righty gives Milwaukee additional bullpen depth in its farm system, and Carlson will likely head to High-A Wisconsin or Double-A Biloxi to begin 2024.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Brewer Hicklen: Receives NRI from Brewers
Hicklen signed a minor-league contract with the Brewers on Tuesday, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.
He's been given an invitation to spring training as part of the deal. Hicklen received a cup of coffee in the majors with the Royals in 2022 but spent all of 2023 at the Triple-A level between the Kansas City and Philadelphia organizations, posting an .804 OPS. He'll compete for a reserve outfielder job this spring but is likely headed to Triple-A Nashville.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Easton McGee: Latches on with Milwaukee
McGee (elbow) signed a two-year, minor-league contract with the Brewers on Tuesday, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.
McGee was given an invitation to major-league spring training as part of the deal, but he'll spend it rehabbing after undergoing Tommy John surgery in May. The 25-year-old doesn't figure to be game-ready until around the middle of the 2024 season, but he is now locked in with the Brewers through 2025.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Jared Koenig: Minors pact with Brewers
Koenig signed a minor-league contract with the Brewers on Friday that includes an invitation to spring training, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.
Koenig reached the majors with Oakland in 2022, but he spent all of 2023 in the minors working as a reliever for the Padres' Double-A and Triple-A affiliates. He had a 5.00 ERA, 1.84 WHIP and 48 strikeouts in 45 innings over 36 appearances at Triple-A.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Enoli Paredes: Minors deal with Milwaukee
Paredes signed a minor-league contract with the Brewers on Friday that includes an invitation to spring training, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.
Paredes, a 28-year-old righty reliever has only been a member of the Houston Astros dating back to 2016, but he elected free agency this offseason. He spent all of 2023 at Triple-A and struggled with his control, walking 45 batters in 54.1 innings.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Jake Bauers: Dealt to Brewers
The Yankees traded Bauers to Milwaukee on Friday in exchange for Jace Avina and Brian Sanchez.
With a .211 batting average and .663 OPS through four seasons in the majors, Bauers has yet to establish himself as a threat at the plate. However, with no remaining minor-league options, he figures to be firmly in the running for the Brewers' first base job, and his ability to man the corner outfield positions could land him a bench spot if he doesn't start....

Brewers' Yonny Hernandez: Receives NRI from Milwaukee
Hernandez signed a minor-league contract with the Brewers on Friday, Robert Murray of FanSided.com reports.
The deal includes an invitation to spring training, where Hernandez will compete for a utility infielder job. The 25-year-old has shown very little with the bat during his time in the majors to this point, slashing just .190/.286/.222 over 221 plate appearances.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Chad Patrick: Shipped to Milwaukee
The Athletics traded Patrick to the Brewers on Wednesday in exchange for Abraham Toro, Curt Hogg of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Patrick spent time at Double-A and Triple-A in 2023, posting a 5.59 ERA and 1.61 WHIP across 124 innings between the two levels. His numbers could improve next season as he leaves the hitter-friendly environment out west. The 25-year-old righty will likely serve as organizational depth for his new club.... See More ... See Less
