Send Cash to Pittsburgh

MILWAUKEE – The Milwaukee Brewers have acquired right-handed pitcher Bryse Wilson (pronounced brice) from the Pittsburgh Pirates in exchange for cash. The announcement was made by Senior Vice President and General Manager Matt Arnold.

To make room on the 40-man roster, right-handed pitcher Trevor Kelley was designated for assignment.

Wilson, who turned 25 on Dec. 20, has appeared in 56 games (43 starts) in the Major Leagues with Atlanta (2018-21) and Pittsburgh (2021-22). He made 25 appearances (20 starts) with the Pirates last season.

Selected by Atlanta in the fourth round of the 2016 First-Year Player Draft, Wilson started and earned the win for the Braves over the Dodgers in Game 4 of the 2020 National League Championship Series (6ip, 1h, 1r, 1er, 1bb, 5k, 1hr). The then 22-year-old had just 15 games (7 starts) of experience in the Major Leagues – none in the postseason – prior to this outing but was called into action due to pitching staff needs.

Wilson was traded by Atlanta to Pittsburgh, along with right-handed pitcher Ricky DeVito, in exchange for right-handed pitcher Richard Rodríguez on July 30, 2021.
