Brewers, Reds complete Weathers deal
The Brewers announced Friday that they had sent cash to the Reds to complete the Aug. 9 trade that brought veteran reliever David Weathers to Milwaukee. Weathers appeared 25 times for the Brewers and posted a 4.88 ERA, giving him a 3.92 ERA in 68 games between the two teams.
He turned 40 on Sept. 25 and the Brewers have until 10 days after the World Series to decide whether to exercise Weathers’ $3.7 million club option. If the team declines, Weathers gets $400,000 and a chance to test his value in free agency.
