Brewers make three-year, $31 million offer to Wolf and talk to Mulder

Leave a comment

Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports that the Brewers have made Randy Wolf a three-year, $31 million offer and are now simply waiting for his decision. Wolf and the Brewers were said to be on the verge of a deal last night, but the Mets apparently changed things by expressing late interest.
Wolf became a much more desirable target when the Dodgers misguidedly decided not to offer him salary arbitration, meaning that teams could pursue the Type A free agent without risking their first-round pick. Wolf has a lengthy injury history, but has remained healthy over the past two seasons while going 23-19 with a 3.74 ERA and 322/129 K/BB ratio in 404.2 innings for the Dodgers, Astros, and Padres.
While waiting for Wolf to make a decision the Brewers have also talked to Mark Mulder, who’s still trying to come back from a series of arm injuries. At this point Mulder is much more of a reclamation project than a legitimate rotation option for 2010, but new Brewers pitching coach worked with him in Oakland and the two sides should be able to figure out an incentive-laden deal.

Alex Bregman shaved his mustache off in the middle of Sunday’s game

Astros third baseman Alex Bregman apparently wasn’t happy with his mustache on Sunday afternoon as he shaved it off in between innings during his team’s contest against the Royals. Bregman walked and later scored in the Astros’ eight-run second inning, but when he took his next plate appearance in the fourth inning, he was clean-shaven.

Sometimes you just need to switch things up. 🤷‍♂️🤷‍♀️

Bregman made a throwing error in the seventh and finished 0-for-4 with the walk on the afternoon. The Astros won 11-3.

Bregman isn’t the only player to make headlines for his facial hair recently. Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper recently shaved his signature beard. The Yankees approve of what both players have done.
