  • Brewers' Aaron Ashby: Healthy and aiming for rotation

    Ashby (shoulder) told reporters Friday that he's healthy and will be competing for a spot in the Brewers' rotation this spring, Todd Rosiak of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

    Ashby had left shoulder surgery last April and was roughed up in seven rehab appearances after returning, posting a 15.43 ERA. His velocity was reportedly trending in the right direction as of last fall, so it will be interesting to see what the radar gun says this spring. It's not clear when the southpaw will be making his Cactus League debut. When he's healthy, Ashby has loads of upside, but he has some boxes to check from a stuff and performance standpoint before fantasy managers should get excited.

  • Brewers' Sal Frelick: Playing third base in Cactus opener

    Frelick will start at third base and lead off for the Brewers on Saturday in their Cactus League opener versus the Padres, Todd Rosiak of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

    Frelick has been working out in the infield this spring and the Brewers are throwing him into the fire at the hot corner as their spring schedule opens. The 23-year-old's only previous infield experience came with the North Shore Navigators in summer ball back in 2018 and 2020. It would seem like a stretch for Frelick to be used at third base with regularity in 2024, but the team's lack of established options at the position could work in his favor.

  • Brewers' Gary Sanchez: Hand issue stalled deal

    Sanchez suffered a hand injury during a workout several weeks ago, which was the reason for the hold up with his contract, Todd Rosiak of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

    It was originally believed that Sanchez's right wrist -- which he fractured in September -- was what delayed the finalization of his deal with the Brewers. The 31-year-old backstop has already been cleared for baseball activities, so his hand (and wrist) shouldn't prevent him from seeing playing time during spring training, but it may be something to monitor going forward.

  • Brewers' Gary Sanchez: Not ready for games yet

    Brewers manager Pat Murphy said Thursday that Sanchez (wrist) has been cleared for baseball activities but will need time to ramp up before playing in games, Sophia Minnaert of Bally Sports Wisconsin reports.

    Sanchez's signing with the Brewers was delayed about two weeks due to concerns about his right wrist -- which he fractured in September -- that cropped up during his physical. He ultimately had the guaranteed money in his contract reduced from $7 million to $3 million once the deal was finalized. However, the injury isn't severe enough to prevent Sanchez from working out, and it shouldn't be too long before he's cleared for Cactus League action. The 31-year-old is projected to back up William Contreras at catcher and could also see a significant number of starts at designated hitter.

  • Brewers' Christian Arroyo: Getting look at third base

    Brewers manager Pat Murphy said recently that Arroyo will receive the bulk of his reps this spring at third base, Todd Rosiak of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

    He'll also be mixed in at first base. Arroyo is capable of playing both middle infield spots, as well, but it sounds like his focus will be on the corners, and he could even push for ample playing time at a third base spot that's wide open for the Brewers. Also competing for starts at the hot corner along with Arroyo will be Andruw Monasterio, Joey Ortiz, Tyler Black and Owen Miller. Milwaukee is also giving Sal Frelick some reps at third base, although it doesn't appear he's a real candidate for starts there, at least not initially.

  • Brewers' Brandon Woodruff: Shifts to 60-day IL

    Milwaukee placed Woodruff (shoulder) on the 60-day injured list Wednesday after he finalized a two-year contract with the club, Todd Rosiak of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

    Woodruff will be guaranteed $17.5 million in the deal, which includes a $20 million mutual option or a $10 million buyout for the 2026 season. Just over four months removed from right shoulder surgery, Woodruff said that he began throwing program last week. He noted that the operation went better than expected and that he feels completely normal now, but the rehab process will be slow and steady and a potential return before the end of the 2024 season will be decided by doctors. In all likelihood, Woodruff won't get on a major-league mound again until 2025.

  • Brewers' Gary Sanchez: Finalizes deal with Milwaukee

    Sanchez finalized a one-year contract with the Brewers on Wednesday, with the deal guaranteeing him $3 million rather than the initial $7 million that the two sides had agreed upon two weeks earlier, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.

    The deal will feature incentives that will allow Sanchez to get back to the $7 million figure, provided he stays healthy after the Brewers had some concerns about his right wrist following a physical. The deal also contains a mutual option for 2025, according to Todd Rosiak of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. Sanchez batted .218/.292/.500 with 19 homers over just 260 plate appearances last season with the Padres. He's slated to see ample time at designated hitter while also backing up William Contreras at catcher.

  • Brewers' Jahmai Jones: Exits 40-man roster

    The Brewers designated Jones for assignment Wednesday, Todd Rosiak of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

    Milwaukee needed to clear a spot on its 40-man roster after announcing the re-signing of Brandon Woodruff, and Jones ended up being the casualty. Jones, 26, has a career .460 OPS in 90 plate appearances across parts of three major-league seasons. His versatility could make him appealing to some clubs once he hits waivers.

  • Brewers' Gary Sanchez: Close to finalizing deal

    Sanchez hasn't officially signed a one-year deal with the Brewers, but the two sides are close to finalizing a contract as of Tuesday, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.

    Jon Heyman of the New York Post was first to report Feb. 7 that Sanchez had reached an agreement with the Brewers, but the deal has been put on hold temporarily after Milwaukee expressed concern about Sanchez's right wrist following a physical. It's possible that Sanchez's wrist issues will result in him signing for less than the $7 million salary that was originally reported, but he may still be able to reach that figure via incentives. The 31-year-old catcher is expected to see significant time at designated hitter in 2024 while serving as top backstop William Contreras' backup.

  • Brewers' Brandon Woodruff: Re-signs with Milwaukee

    Woodruff (shoulder) signed a two-year contract with the Brewers on Monday, Jon Heyman of the New York Post reports.

    The financial details of the deal are not yet known. Woodruff was non-tendered by the Brewers earlier this offseason after he underwent surgery to repair the anterior capsule in his right shoulder. The veteran right-hander is expected to be sidelined for the duration of the 2024 campaign, with Milwaukee hoping it can get Woodruff back to ace-level production in 2025. Woodruff held a 2.28 ERA, 0.82 WHIP and 74:15 K:BB over 67 innings covering 11 starts in 2023.

  • Brewers' Sal Frelick: Learning to play in infield

    Frelick has been learning to play at second and third base, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.

    With the impending arrival of Jackson Chourio, the Brewers' outfield unit has begun to look crowded, with Frelick, Garrett Mitchell, Christian Yelich and Joey Wiemer also vying for playing time. Frelick proved to be a great defender in center and right field last season, so the Brewers likely won't completely remove him from the outfield group, but further adding to Frelick's versatility could open up more opportunities for him to start while also allowing Milwaukee's other outfielders to play with more regularity.

  • Brewers' Gary Sanchez: Not in Brewers camp

    Sanchez did not report to Brewers camp Wednesday with the rest of the team's pitchers and catchers, Todd Rosiak of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

    He has still not arrived as of Friday and there's no word on when or if his reported one-year, $7 million contract will be finalized. Rosiak speculated Wednesday that negotiations might still be ongoing. Assuming the deal does eventually become official, Sanchez is expected to see plenty of action at designated hitter as well as backing up William Contreras at catcher.
