Blue Jays Acquire Chase Anderson From Brewers

Nov 5, 2019 7:29 AM

The Milwaukee Brewers have traded Chase Anderson to the Toronto Blue Jays.

The Blue Jays sent prospect Chad Spanberger back in the deal.

Milwaukee cut $15 million off their payroll for next season by trading Anderson and declining a $7.5 million option on Eric Thames.

The Brewers had planned to decline Anderson's $8.5 million option, which would have made him eligible for salary arbitration. Toronto exercised the option after the trade.
