Entering the offseason, the status of Corbin Burnes was one of the biggest questions. With just one year of team control and an expensive contract, a trade seemed like a likely possibility. As Spring Training approaches, the trade has happened. The Brewers traded Corbin Burnes to the Orioles tonight for shortstop Joey Ortiz and LHP D.L. Hall, as well as the 34th pick in the 2024 draft.

Burnes was always heading towards free agency, so getting trade value for him in his last year of team control was a high possibility. The former Cy Young winner has attracted a lot of attention, it was just a matter of who would meet the Brewers price.
