November 18th, 2023

MILWAUKEE -- The Milwaukee Brewers announced today that nine arbitration-eligible players have been tendered contracts for the 2024 season and three were non-tendered. The announcement was made by Senior Vice President and General Manager Matt Arnold.

The team tendered contracts to SS Willy Adames, 1B/OF Jake Bauers, OF Tyrone Taylor, RHP Corbin Burnes, RHP Adrian Houser, LHP Hoby Milner, RHP Joel Payamps, RHP Devin Williams and RHP Bryse Wilson. The team non-tendered 1B Rowdy Tellez, RHP J.C. Mejía and RHP Brandon Woodruff, making them free agents.

"Today we had to make a very difficult decision relating to one of the best pitchers and human beings in franchise history," said Arnold. "Throughout his 10 seasons in the organization, Brandon Woodruff has represented the Brewers with class, kindness, heart and toughness. He is recognized as a tremendous teammate, both on the field and in the community, where he and his wife, Jonie, have positively impacted so many lives around them. We remain very open to his return to Milwaukee, and regardless of what uniform he wears next, Woody will always be a member of the Brewers family." 

Woodruff, 30, was on the injured list from April 11 through Aug. 5 with right shoulder inflammation. On Oct. 13, he had surgery to repair the anterior capsule in his right shoulder, performed by Dr. Keith Meister in Arlington, TX. He is eligible for free agency following the 2024 season.
