Brewers Wade Miley Makes Decision On 2024 Option After Solid Season

Veteran left-handed pitcher Wade Miley, who is set to turn 37 this month, has made the surprising choice to decline his portion of a $10 million mutual option with the Milwaukee Brewers.

The Brewers' decision regarding their end of the option remains uncertain, but Miley will receive a $1 million buyout, effectively making him a free agent for the upcoming 2024 season.

During his second stint with the Brewers, Miley demonstrated consistency by maintaining a 3.14 ERA, 1.14 WHIP, with 79 strikeouts across 120.1 innings and 23 starts.

Despite a relatively modest strikeout rate of 16.1%, Miley's strength lies in his ability to induce ground balls, boasting a 46.3% ground ball rate.

Over the past three seasons, the 36-year-old holds an impressive 3.33 ERA, 1.31 WHIP, with 153 strikeouts across 200 innings and 37 appearances.

As he enters free agency, Miley presents an experienced option for teams seeking a dependable pitcher capable of consistent performance when in good health.

His decision to explore other opportunities suggests his desire to secure a potentially more lucrative multi-year contract for what could be his final seasons in the MLB. Photo Credit: Benny Sieu-USA TODAY Sports
