The Brewers and LHP Josh Hader avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $6.675 million contract.
Hader and the Brewers had to go to a hearing last year but were able to avoid it this time. He should be the consensus No. 1 reliever to be selected in 2021 fantasy leagues.
The Brewers reportedly intend to listen to offers for elite closer Josh Hader, per Robert Murray of Fansided.
The Brewers “intend to listen” to offers for All-Star reliever Josh Hader, per Murray. The LHP will earn $5.1 million in arbitration and that number will rise until he becomes a free agent in 2024. The Brewers are looking to upgrade their offense and moving on from Hader would free up extra money. The Yankees, Dodgers, Padres and Mets are among the teams to show previous interest in Hader, Murray added. Hader posted a 3.79 ERA, 0.95 WHIP and a 31:10 K:BB over 19 innings last season.
Josh Hader made his only postseason appearance on Thursday when he struck out two over 1 1/3 innings in the Brewers 3-0 loss to the Dodgers.
