The Milwaukee Brewers have made a big move on Tuesday, agreeing to a one-year deal with left-handed pitcher Brett Anderson.
Good news has arrived for Milwaukee Brewers fans: pitcher Brett Anderson isn’t going anywhere. After making an impact in the rotation for the team in 2020, Anderson was testing the free-agent waters and received interest from multiple clubs.
He’s decided to stay put, though, as it’s been reported that he and Milwaukee have agreed to terms on a new one-year deal. That’s right, Anderson is all set to pitch once again for the Brewers in 2021.
Starting pitcher Brett Anderson will be staying with the Brewers after all
Last season for Milwaukee, Anderson started 10 games for the club and he went 4-4. He also recorded a 4.21 ERA. Prior to his time with the Brewers, Anderson also suited up for the Athletics, Dodgers, Cubs and Blue Jays.
In his 12-year career, Anderson has gone 63-65, with a 4.06 ERA. His best season came back in 2019 for the Athletics, where he posted 13 wins and a 3.89 ERA. Now, he’ll look to have a strong year for Milwaukee in 2021, where he’s all set to earn $2.5 million. Per Jeff Passan, he also has incentives that can help him earn an additional $1 million.
For the Brewers, they’ll be hoping to get back on the right track next season. In 2020, the team went 29-31, finishing in second-to-last place of the NL Central standings. They’ll be hoping to get to the playoffs this year, with Anderson hoping to help the team achieve that goal.
