It wouldn't have been a non-tender. Anderson has a team option. The team simply would have not picked it up.

Yes, this tells me they are going to be active in upgrading the starting pitching. It will be interesting to see what they get back for Anderson, as he's been very good for the most part in his time as a Brewer, and that option is not overly expensive.

Have a feeling that Chase getting dealt to an AL East team is not going to help his propensity to give up dingers.

Can I interest you in a Chad Spanberger?

#BlueJays are sending 1B Chad Spanberger, who was acquired in the Seunghwan Oh trade, to the Brewers. Spanberger, 24, struggled in Double-A in 2019.

There was no chance they weren't going to pick up that option and simply dump him for nothing. If no one wanted him they would have picked it up and either put him in the rotation or had him as insurance. Not a particularly surprising move as the Brewers have never seemed to be big Anderson fans in the last few years and I somewhat expected a move like this to go with someone they liked more on the cheap. To me this is simply a sign they are going to invest his salary in a different middling guy...probably Lyles if I had to guess.

A very underrated guy. Almost propelled us to the postseason in 2017, helped in 2018, and without him last year we may not even make the postseason. When the pitching imploded Anderson was in the wings to provide the stability it dearly needed.

Dude crushed it in the Sally league. Hasn't done anything since then.

Spanberger, 24, struggled in Double-A in 2019.


Big (6'3", 235), strong lefty power hitter who was a 6th round pick of the Rockies in 2017. Terrific numbers in A Ball in 2018. Literally turned 24 on Friday.

Nice prospect to have at a spot where the Brewers are lacking much in the minors. I would expect him to start at Biloxi next year ... perhaps San Antonio if he is great in Spring Training.

So basically a guy that crushed A ball as a 22 year old (pretty old for that league as a college sign). Not too impressive of a track record in all honesty. Not a great prospect...but at least you can dream a little bit that he may figure it out.

it should be noted that spanberger is on a minor league contract and is not rule 5 eligible this year, so this transaction does open up a 40-man spot.

What were you expecting for Chase Anderson? Spanberger is at least an actual honest-to-goodness prospect.
