The Milwaukee Brewers took another step towards strengthening their rotational depth on Wednesday, bringing a newcomer on board and welcoming a familiar face back into the fold.

First, right-hander Bryse Wilson was acquired from the Pittsburgh Pirates for cash. Then, not long after, several reports saw lefty Wade Miley sign a one-year, $4.5 million deal free agent contract with the Brewers, which includes another potential $1.5 million in incentives.

The additions serve to better insulate Milwaukee against injuries and underperformance, both of which have plagued the team in 2022 as Brandon Woodruff, Freddy Peralta and Adrian Houser all missed time and replacements Aaron Ashby, Jason Alexander and others struggled.

Wilson, 25, made 25 starts with 20 starts for the Pirates in 2022, pitching for a 5.22 earned run average in 115 ⅔ innings with 72 strikeouts and 39 walks.
