Despite being one of the more consistent arms in the bullpens for both Brad Ausmus and Ron Gardenhire, Alex Wilson entered the 2019 season without a major league contract.


After a brief stint with Cleveland in Spring Training, the ​Milwaukee Brewers announced that they will sign Wilson in order to bolster one of the best bullpens in ​baseball. ​

After starting his career with Boston, for whom he pitched two seasons, Wilson was included in the deal that sent Yoenis Cespedes to Detroit and Rick Porcello to Boston. His career took off for the Tigers, as he posted a 3.20 ERA over the last four seasons. In 2018, he had a 3.36 ERA in 61.2 innings. 


​​Wilson was a non-roster invite to Indians spring training, but opted out of his deal. It looked as if Wilson wouldn't make the Cleveland 40-man and would start the season in Triple-A. 

​​Wilson is a consistent, reliable arm that can tough the mid 90s and won't give up too many home runs. There will always be a market for that in baseball.
