  • Jon Singleton Designated For Assignment

    The Milwaukee Brewers have reportedly designated first baseman Jon Singleton for assignment on Monday, per a tweet from the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel's Curt Hogg. Per Hogg's tweet, Singleton was designated for assignment to open up a 40-man roster space for new signing Brian Anderson. Singleton appeared in 134 games for Milwaukee's Triple-A club this past season, hitting .219 with a .375 on-base percentage, 24 home runs, and three stolen bases in 581 plate appearances. As of now, Milwaukee's options at first base include Rowdy Tellez, Owen Miller, Keston Hiura, Brian Anderson, and Josh VanMeter.

  • Brewers, Brian Anderson Reach Agreement Tuesday

    The Milwaukee Brewers and free-agent third baseman/outfielder Brian Anderson reached an agreement Tuesday, pending a physical, per The Athletic's Ken Rosenthal. Terms of the agreement were not disclosed. The 29-year-old had a disappointing 2022 season with the Miami Marlins, slashing .222/.311/.346 with eight home runs and 28 RBI in 383 plate appearances while missing time with a left shoulder strain. However, Anderson is a strong defensive player and has a respectable career .256/.341/.410 slash line. He will be joining a better lineup and now becomes an interesting late-round fantasy pick if he enters the season healthy with a starting role.

  • Keston Hiura Settles For $2.2 Million

    The Milwaukee Brewers and infielder Keston Hiura avoided salary arbitration on Friday by agreeing to a one-year, $2.2 million deal. Hiura was once one of the Brew Crew's better infield prospects, but the 26-year-old just hasn't been able to put much together after his rookie season in 2019 when he hit .303 and clubbed 19 home runs in 84 games. In 2022, he slashed .226/.316/.449 with a .765 OPS, 14 home runs, 32 RBI, 34 runs scored and five stolen bases in 266 plate appearances over 80 games. He struck out over 40 percent of the time and should open the 2023 campaign as a bench bat with pop for Milwaukee, leaving him little fantasy value outside of NL-only leagues.

  • Brewers, Brandon Woodruff Avoid Arbitration

    The Milwaukee Brewers and starting pitcher Brandon Woodruff avoided salary arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $10.8 million deal on Friday, according to a source. Woodruff continues to be one of the better pitchers in baseball after going 13-4 with a 3.05 ERA (3.08 FIP), 1.07 WHIP and 30.7 percent strikeout rate in 27 starts over 153 1/3 innings pitched last season. Injuries are a concern for the 29-year-old right-hander -- he's never topped 179 1/3 innings in his six major-league seasons -- but aside from those concerns, he's been very solid for fantasy managers. Woodruff has never had an ERA above 5.00 in any of his seasons and has only been over a 4.00 ERA once, in his rookie season in 2017.

  • Brewers Sign Thyago Vieira To Minor-League Deal

    The Milwaukee Brewers signed free-agent right-hander Thyago Vieira to a minor-league contract on Thursday that includes an invitation to major-league spring training. Vieira has pitched in Japan since 2020 and was pretty successful, posting a 2.86 ERA with 150 strikeouts and 61 walks in 125 2/3 innings out of the bullpen. In three seasons in the major leagues before heading overseas, the 29-year-old reliever had a 7.36 ERA (5.32 FIP), 1.79 WHIP, one save and a 19.2 percent strikeout rate in 25 2/3 relief innings for the Seattle Mariners and Chicago White Sox. Thyago will be competing to be middle-relief depth for the Brewers bullpen in spring training.

Kelley had been designated for assignment last week when the club acquired Bryse Wilson. Kelley has rejected the assignment and elected free agency, which was his right as a player with a previous career outright.…
