“Signing Chase to a multi-year contract furthers our strategy to acquire, develop and retain talent throughout our organization,” said Stearns. “Chase’s 2017 performance elevated his stature in the game and demonstrated that he has the capability to lead a rotation. Since he arrived in Milwaukee, Chase has been a model contributor to our community both on and off the field. We are happy for him and his family and look forward to Chase’s contributions for years to come.”

Anderson went 12–4 with a 2.74 ERA in 25 starts for the Brewers in 2017. He set career highs for wins and strikeouts (133) and tied his career high with 13 quality starts.
