Update:

The great Jake Petricka line has finally settled down, as he has reached 5 years MLB service time and can no longer be optioned without his consent. Enjoy that star next to your name, Jake, you've earned it.

In other news, if Taylor Williams isn't called up today, he will burn his 3rd and final option.

When the time comes and I imagine it will, I wonder if Petricka will agree to the option instead of being DFA since he is always one of the first to get called back up.

Update:

We found out the answer a few days ago, I guess, as Petricka was DFA'd. Reports said he was only DFA'd to make room for Gio Gonzalez on the 40-man, but it still seems possible that he just refused an option and made that decision easy for the Brewers.

Anyways, Petricka is now off the 40-man, his 2 option years (if he consents) are still in tact for now if remains in the Brewers' system. Gio has been added to the 40-man roster.

Taylor Williams has now spent more than 20 days in the minors this year and has burned his 3rd and final option. It is unclear if, like Adrian Houser, he would be eligible for a 4th option next year due to his injury history.

Update:

Alex Wilson has been designated for assignment. Brewers have selected the contract of Jay Jackson to replace him on the 40-man.

Looking back at Jackson's career, I'm kind of amazed at how badly the Cubs seem to have bundled his career but maybe there is more to the story. Jackson was a top 10 (maybe even top 5) prospect once for the Cubs, had a helium-like rise through their system in 2 years after being drafted, then they let him toil away at AAA for 3 years until he probably just got so frustrated he couldn't pitch well anymore, then they released him without ever adding him to the 40-man.

He did have a brief call up in 2015, did not perform well, then went to Japan where he performed very well. Most astonishing is that the Cubs never once thought to try him in the bullpen during those 3 long years in AAA, which is where he seems to be thriving now.

JJ #2 could be a really smart pickup. Hasn't given up a run at AAA yet this year, 14:2 K:BB in 8.2 IP, and reportedly has a fastball in the mid to upper 90s. Excited to see how he fares with the Crew.

Shaw has 2 options. He also is in his 5th year but has only played 3 full seasons and about 80 games. Does that mean we can option him still?

Yes, the Brewers could option him without his consent until he hits 5 full years service time. Like you said, at the beginning of 2019, Shaw had 3 years and 88 days of service time, so this entire year plus part of next year we could option him without his consent. I'm not sure if we're to that point with him yet though.

Update:

I was on vacation this weekend so I made a few updates when I thought of it and I think this chart is up to date, just haven't listed them in an update post. I believe what I missed was:

- Jay Jackson DFA'd
- Burch Smith contract selected
- Jacob Barnes was optioned and will burn his 3rd and final option if he remains in the Minors through May 21st.

Update:

Aaron Wilkerson was reinstated from the IL and optioned. This effectively burns his 2019 option, leaving him with 1 remaining after 2019.

Update:

With his recall, Jacob Barnes' 2019 option status is on hold. He has not yet spent 20 days in the Minors this season, so, at least for now, his 2019 option is still intact.

Burch Smith will burn his 3rd and final option if he remains in the minors through the end of May.

Keston Hiura contract selected, he starts his Major League career with 3 shiny new option years. Hopefully he'll never have to burn one.

Update:

Jacob Barnes optioned to make room for Chase Anderson's reinstatement from the IL.

He has 10 more days to go before he burns his 2nd option. So unless there's an injury replacement, he'll burn that option before he can be recalled (I think).
