Brewers pick up Gallardo’s option, decline Weeks’
According to MLB.com‘s Adam McCalvy, the Brewers have exercised the 2015 club option on starting pitcher Yovani Gallardo‘s contract.
Gallardo will make $13 million during the 2015 season and be a free agent thereafter.
The 28-year-old right-hander made 32 starts for the Brewers this season, going 8-11 with a 3.51 ERA. He threw 192 1/3 innings, and has thrown at least 180 in every season for Milwaukee since 2009.
Also as expected, team has declined the club option on longtime second baseman Rickie Weeks. The 2003 first-round draft pick, who hit .274 with eight homers and 29 RBIs in 121 games this season, also had a contract option based on plate appearances that he did not reach.
