The Milwaukee Brewers suffered another devastating playoff loss as this year they were upset by the Arizona Diamondbacks in the Wild Card Series. They lost the first game by a score of six to three and the second game five to two. Following the loss one of their players commented on his uncertain future with the team for 2024 and beyond.
Milwaukee Brewers ace Corbin Burnes commented on his uncertain future with the organization after being defeated by the Arizona Diamondbacks.
Corbin Burnes got the ball for the Brewers in game one and did not pitch well. Overall he allowed four earned runs off of three home runs. Tuesday evening marked the first time he had allowed three home runs in a game since his disastrous 2019 season.
Following the loss he acknowledged that the tone of the series started with his performance on the mound.
“Started with me yesterday. You get chosen to be the Game 1 starter and go out and set the tone and I failed to do that yesterday.”
He also discussed his uncertain future with Milwaukee. 2024 is his final year of team control, so this offseason Matt Arnold will be tasked with figuring out if trading him or if having him play out his final year will be the team will be the best option. A contract extension is estimated to be way out of the Brewers price range.
“You think about the group that you’ve got in here and you think, ‘Damn if we could run it back then we think it would end differently.’ But yeah, you don’t really know.”
Corbin Burnes also relayed that conversations with the front office will likely take place in the upcoming few weeks. Rumors surrounding him will be prevalent all off-season, so it will be interesting to see what the Brewers end up doing.
