The Milwaukee Brewers look to be focused first and foremost on winning next season as the latest reports point to plans for retaining ace starting pitcher Corbin Burnes. In his latest column for USA Today, MLB insider Bob Nightengale reported that the Brewers are now expected to hold onto Burnes and take their best shot in 2024, rather than deal their most attractive trade asset as he heads into unrestricted free agency in 2025. “The Milwaukee Brewers are now expected to retain Cy Young winner Corbin Burnes instead of trading him, still wanting to compete for the NL Central title,”…

The Milwaukee Brewers have a wealth of talented outfielders on their roster. But after relatively quiet Winter Meetings in Nashville this week, a blockbuster deal between the San Diego Padres and New York Yankees that will see All-Star Juan Soto headed to the Bronx, also included one of the Brewers’ former leading outfield prospects who is no longer with the team. In 2015, the Brewers selected Trent Grisham, one of baseball’s top prospects, with the 15th overall pick. He was ranked a top-five Brewers prospect in 2016, sitting just below All-Star reliever Josh Hader. Now, Grisham is headed to the…

As the MLB Winter Meetings wrap up today, reports have surfaced connecting two of the Milwaukee Brewers best players from 2023 to the National League West Division’s reigning champions, the Los Angeles Dodgers. In a report published this morning, MLB insider Ken Rosenthal wrote that the Dodgers have their eye on right-handed starter Corbin Burnes as well as shortstop Willy Adames. https://twitter.com/Ken_Rosenthal/status/1732411153572401402 “Burnes obviously would help fill the void in the Dodgers’ rotation, and Adames would give them a defensive upgrade at shortstop over Gavin Lux,” per Rosenthal. “A native of Kenosha, Wi., Lux could even go back to the…

The Milwaukee Brewers seem to be signaling a “win-now” mentality as they’ve acquired two veterans for their pitching rotation during Winter Meetings in Nashville this week, in addition to re-signing starter Colin Rea in November. But the biggest question regarding their rotation for 2024 remains unanswered. Milwaukee Brewers Welcome Pitcher Wade Miley Back to Rotation Spot By welcoming back 37-year-old starter Wade Miley with a one-year, $8.5 million deal, the Brewers indicated that they are willing to spend for what could very well be the southpaw’s final season of productivity. Miley went nine and four in 2023 with a 3.14…

After going 10 and 8 with a 3.39 ERA and 200 strikeouts, Milwaukee Brewers starting pitcher Corbin Burnes seems to be on the trading block as his current team eyes a rebuild.  Though Burnes is a three-time All Star and holds the National League Cy Young Award from 2021, the 29-year-old is set to become a free agent after the 2024 season and if the Milwaukee Brewers are able to trade him now, they won’t face the choice of a hefty extension or losing their ace without netting a significant return. That’s part of the reason why baseball analyst Jim…

The Milwaukee Brewers are reportedly set to close a record-breaking contract today with a player who has never played a game in the major league, according to a new report.

The Milwaukee Brewers have inked a record-breaking deal with a top prospect before he’s ever played a major league game, marking just the sixth time that’s ever happened. And there’s reason to fear it won’t work out in the club’s favor based on recent history. The Milwaukee Brewers and outfielder Jackson Chourio, a 19-year-old who has been tearing up the minor league system as a touted five-tool prospect, have reportedly agreed on an eight-year, $80 million contract. The deal sets a new record for a player with no MLB service time, and the Milwaukee Brewers are making a big bet…
