“Brian is a well-rounded player that should help us in a number of ways on both sides of the ball,” said Arnold. “His tools and athleticism, along with how hard he plays the game, are all characteristics we value here with the Brewers, and we are excited to have him on board.”

Anderson, 29, has spent his entire six-year Major League career with Miami (2017-22), batting .256 with 57 HR and 233 RBI in 531 games. He has started games at third base (309), right field (179), designated hitter (11), left field (6) and first base (1). He appeared in 98 games with the Marlins in 2022, making 92 starts (42g at 3B, 35g in RF, 9g at DH, 6g in LF).

Selected by Miami in the third round of the 2014 First-Year Player Draft out of the University of Arkansas, Anderson finished fourth in 2018 National League Rookie of the Year voting after batting .273 with 11 HR and 65 RBI in 156 games. He led all Major League rookies in games, at-bats (590), runs (87), hits (161) and doubles (34) that season and ranked second in RBI, walks (62), total bases (236) and extra-base hits (49).

Anderson followed his rookie campaign by setting career highs for HR (20), RBI (66) and extra-base hits (54) in 2019. In 2020, he helped the Marlins to their first postseason appearance since 2003 as he led the team in games (59), at-bats (200), HR (11), RBI (38), total bases (93) and extra-base hits (19). He was also a Gold Glove Award finalist at third base that season.

Anderson is a career .306 (125-for-409) hitter with runners in scoring position.
