As much as it sucks it makes sense.
He wasn’t gonna take a 2 yr/15 million contract.
No reason to pay him 11 million to sit around (as bad as that sounds)
If the Brewers were confident he would be back in 2024 he would be back.

The Woodruff release just makes me sick. This team has gotta turn the guys they can’t sign into prospects. To get nothing now versus what they would’ve gotten without the injury…

Good – dude has too much injury history to be worth the investment he wants. I’m sure he’s a great dude and family man but his time as a brewer is over.

Baseball can be cruel.
Brandon Woodruff will go down as one of the best starting pitchers in Brewers franchise history. An unfortunate break for such a competitor and good teammate.
