Milwaukee Brewers Place 7-Year Veteran Utility Player On Waivers

The Milwaukee Brewers made a significant move by designating INF/OF Brian Anderson for assignment.

Anderson, who initially showed promise with a strong start to the 2023 season, hitting .255/.330/.459 with five home runs, began to struggle as the season progressed.

His performance took a downturn, resulting in a season-ending .226/.310/.368 slash line with nine home runs.

This inconsistency led to reduced playing time, and ultimately, his removal from the team's 40-man roster.

The decision to DFA Anderson was prompted by the Brewers' need to open up a spot for outfield prospect Garrett Mitchell's return from the 60-day injured list.

While Anderson's performance declined, his defensive versatility and prior success suggest that he may have the opportunity to secure a spot on another team during spring training next year.

However, for the Brewers, the move signals a shift in focus as they explore other options, including players like Josh Donaldson, particularly in preparation for the postseason.

Anderson's tenure with the Brewers appears to be at an end, marking a significant development in their roster strategy.

Over his seven-year career, the 30-year-old holds a .252/.336/.404 triple-slash line, with 66 home runs, 273 RBIs, 14 stolen bases, and 287 runs scored across 627 games played. Photo Credit: Michael McLoone-USA TODAY Sports
