The Milwaukee Brewers have parted ways with pitcher Jake Faria after one full year with the organization. The move comes on an afternoon that also saw the completion of the David Phelps trade:
#Brewers make official the pitchers acquired from Philly for David Phelps. @AdamMcCalvy was first to report the names. Also release Jake Faria, acquired from Rays for Jesus Aguilar on 7/31/19. Never got on track with #Brewers. Wasn't on 40-man roster but was in 60-man pool. https://t.co/1d1DkP8llO

Faria was acquired by the Brewers from the Tampa Bay Rays in July of 2019. He was involved in a trade that sent first baseman Jesus Aguilar to Tampa Bay. Now, both Faria and Aguilar no longer play for the teams involved in the trade.
Jake Faria showed promise in 2017, going 5-4 with a 3.43 ERA over 16 games, 14 of which were starts.. The 27 year old’s contract kept him under team control until 2023. However, following underperformance on the major league roster (11.42 ERA over 8.2 innings), the Brewers decided to cut him from the organization.
