Brewers Decline Option On David Weathers

The Brewers declined their $3.7MM club option on reliever David Weathers, according to's Adam McCalvy (via Twitter).  They'll pay a $400K buyout instead.  While Weathers projects as a Type B free agent, an arbitration offer is highly unlikely.  The Brewers acquired Weathers from the Reds in August for cash.

Weathers, 40, posted a 3.92 ERA in 62 innings this year.  His peripherals were pretty bad – 5.4 K/9, 4.1 BB/9, 1.5 HR/9.
