SP - FA
The Brewers have non-tendered SP Brandon Woodruff.
Woodruff was rumored to be on the trade block as the team was looking to move on from the veteran. Woodruff is now a free agent, but is expected to miss most of the 2024 season after undergoing shoulder surgery.
Brewers SP Brandon Woodruff is the subject of trade conversations with multiple teams.
Woodruff will miss the start of the 2024 season after undergoing shoulder surgery. The veteran starter finished with a 5-1 record, 2.28 ERA, and 74 strikeouts in 67 innings last season. The 30-year-old is arbitration eligible this offseason and will be a free agent after the 2024 season.
Brandon Woodruff underwent surgery to repair the anterior capsule in his right shoulder. He will miss most, or perhaps all, of the 2024 season.
Woodruff dealt with shoulder issues throughout the 2023 season and was limited to 67 innings. The issues came back up in his final start of the regular season and forced him to miss the Wild Card series vs the Diamondbacks. The 30-year-old will look to put these issues behind him for good after next season.
Woodruff continued his impressive season, allowing just one earned run on three hits over six innings while striking out six and not issuing a walk.
With a 1.89 ERA and 0.76 WHIP on the year, Woodruff has established himself as a reliable fantasy option, despite the lack of run support in this particular outing. His strong strikeout numbers and exceptional control make him a valuable asset moving forward.
Woodruff's outstanding performance, including nine scoreless innings, seven strikeouts, and just one walk, further solidifies his status as a top-tier fantasy pitcher.
With a season-long ERA of 1.93 and a WHIP of 0.79, Woodruff has been a consistent force on the mound, and fantasy managers can confidently rely on him for strong outings moving forward.
