Fantasy Impact: Burnes had a dominant season on the mound for the Milwaukee Brewers. He led the National League with a 2.43 earned run average while also finishing with a 0.94 WHIP and 234/34 K/BB ratio in 167 innings.

Fantasy Impact: Bradley, 31, remains an elite defender but struggled with the bat in his hands this past season, slashing just .163/.236/.261 with a 30.8 percent strikeout rate, .098 ISO, 35 wRC+, and -33.1 fWAR on offense.

The Brewers announced they have signed reliever Trevor Gott to a one-year contract. Financial terms were not disclosed. (Source: Milwaukee Brewers on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Gott, 29, struggled during his last MLB stint in 2020 but posted better numbers in Triple-A this past season. It seems very likely that he'll make the MLB roster out of Spring Training, barring anything extraordinary.

Fantasy Impact: Urias hit .249/.345/.445 with 23 homers in 150 games for the Brewers during the 2021 regular season. He'll likely start at third base next season.

Fantasy Impact: Peralta will toe the rubber with the series tied at one apiece. 2021 was his best season in the majors as he went 10-5 with a 2.81 ERA, 0.97 WHIP, and .165 OBA through 28 outings.

Brewers RHP Devin Williams underwent surgery on his fractured hand. (Source: Tom Haudricourt on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Williams broke his hand while celebrating the Brewers' postseason birth. His absence certainly hurts Milwaukee's pitching staff for the playoffs. The 27-year-old wasn't as dominant this season as he was in 2020, but he was still very effective. There's a chance he could return for the World Series if the Brewers advance that far.

Brett Anderson pitched one inning as the opener Sunday against the Dodgers. He allowed one hit in a scoreless inning.

Fantasy Impact: The Brewers treated this as a quasi bullpen game as they look forward to the playoffs. He finished 2021 with a 4.22 ERA and a 1.39 WHIP across 96 innings with 58 strikeouts.

Willy Adames went 1-for-2 with two walks, a solo home run, and two runs scored Saturday against the Ddogers.

Fantasy Impact: Adames went deep in the ninth inning off David Price, but the lead wasn't within reach. In 2021, Adames is batting .262 with 25 homers, 73 RBI, and a .818 OPS.

Eric Lauer did not factor into the decision Friday against the Dodgers, allowing five runs on six hits across five innings. He walked two and struck out three.

Fantasy Impact: Lauer was kept in line for the win by some nice offensive production on the other side, but the Brewers did not emerge victorious. Lauer finishes the 2021 regular season with a 3.19 ERA and 1.14 WHIP across 118.2 innings with 117 strikeouts. He is likely to continue his swingman role in the playoffs.

Josh Hader struck out the side in a clean inning Thursday against the Cardinals.

Fantasy Impact: This was likely a tune-up for Hader, who had not appeared since Saturday. He'll be a force to be reckoned with in the playoffs, and might have to shoulder a heavier load with Devin Williams (hand) out for the season.

Manny Pina went 1-for-4 with a solo home run Wednesday against the Cardinals.

Fantasy Impact: Pina went deep in the seventh inning to extend Milwaukee's lead. The backup catcher is batting .194 on the season with 13 homers and 33 RBI.

Daniel Vogelbach went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run Wednesday against the Cardinals.

Fantasy Impact: Vogelbach delivered his two-run homer in the sixth inning off Miles Mikolas. Vogelbach is batting .217 this season, and will likely serve as a left-handed bench bat in the playoffs.

Adrian Houser (10-6) earned the win Wednesday against the Cardinals, tossing five scoreless innings while allowing three hits and two walks. He struck out one.

Fantasy Impact: Houser put a stop to the Cardinals' historic win streak by silencing their bats. Houser finishes the regular season with a 3.22 ERA and 1.28 WHIP across 142.1 innings with 105 strikeouts.

Brandon Woodruff did not factor into the decision Tuesday against the Cardinals, allowing two runs on seven hits in four innings. He walked none and struck out three.

Fantasy Impact: Woodruff ran into the Cardinals buzz saw and could not quiet their bats. Woodruff may not make another start in the regular season; he pitched to a 2.56 ERA and 0.96 WHIP across 179.1 innings with 211 strikeouts.

Christian Yelich went 2-for-3 with a triple, a walk, a solo home run, and two runs scored Friday against the Mets.

Fantasy Impact: Yelich was a tough out Friday night, delivering his ninth home run of the season and logging his second triple. He will be a polarizing player this offseason, as he's struggled to a .245 average in 111 games in 2021.

Kolten Wong went 1-for-2 with two walks, a solo home run, a stolen base, and two runs scored Friday against the Mets.

Fantasy Impact: Wong went yard off Tylor Megill in the first inning, and later walked and scored another run. He also chipped in his 11th stolen base of the season.

Tyrone Taylor went 2-for-4 with a grand slam and a solo home run Thursday against the Cardinals.

Fantasy Impact: Taylor tagged Adam Wainwright for two homers Thursday, including a grand slam in the first inning. Taylor is up to 12 homers on the season, but hasn't seen much playing time with Yelich, Garcia, and Cain all healthy.

Avisail Garcia went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Wednesday's loss to the Cardinals.

Fantasy Impact: Garcia went yard in the seventh inning when the Brewers were trailing by six runs. Garcia is up to 29 home runs on the year, and he's batting .270 with 84 RBI and a .843 OPS in 128 games.

Brewers OF Lorenzo Cain remains absent from the team's lineup on Monday. (Source: Tom Haudricourt on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Cain banged into the outfield wall while making a catch on Saturday. He's reportedly feeling better, however, so this shouldn't be an extended absence.
