Brewers GM Matt Arnold opens up about trading Corbin Burnes to Orioles

Milwaukee Brewers trade Corbin Burnes to Baltimore Orioles, causing shock and criticism, but GM defends decision, while Burnes looks forward to new opportunity.

Milwaukee Brewers GM Matt Arnold shocked MLB fans by trading star pitcher Corbin Burnes to the Baltimore Orioles. Burnes, a 29-year-old right-handed pitcher, had spent his entire professional career with the Brewers, making his major league debut in 2018 and establishing himself as one of the best pitchers in the league. He won the Cy Young award and was the NL ERA leader in 2021, as well as the strikeout leader in 2022. Burnes also holds records for the most consecutive strikeouts in a game and the most consecutive strikeouts without issuing a walk.

Despite Burnes' success, the Brewers traded him to the Orioles for two unproven players and a draft pick. This decision was met with criticism, but GM Matt Arnold defended it, emphasizing the excitement about the new players coming to the Brewers and the reality that they had only one year left with Burnes.

The move to the Orioles is expected to provide a promising situation for Burnes, who will take on the role of the ace in their rotation. He will be joined by RHP Kyle Bradish, and based on their statistics from last season, they are expected to have the best ERA as a duo at just 3.13.

Orioles fans are understandably excited about the upcoming season, eager to see how Burnes and Bradish will perform. The trade has certainly caused a stir in the MLB community, and the impact of this move will be closely watched as the new season unfolds.
