Brewers to outright Jose Veras

Jeff Hanisch-US PRESSWIRE

Veras will elect for free agency if he clears waivers.

The Milwaukee Brewers are expected to outright right-hander Jose Veras from the 40-man roster, reports Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel:

The Milwaukee Brewers have informed reliever Jose Veras of their intention to outright him from the 40-man roster. Veras has to clear waivers for that move to become official.

Veras' agent, Bryce Dixon, told MLB.com that Veras would elect free agency if he clears waivers.

The 32-year-old right-hander posted a solid 3.63 ERA and 10.6 K/9 in sixty-seven innings out of the Brewers’ bullpen this season, but also walked 5.4 batters per nine. Veras now has seven years of big league experience under his belt, amassing a 4.01 ERA and 9.4 K/9 in that time.

Veras made $2 million in 2012 and would have been arbitration eligible had he remained on the Brewers’ roster. The other two Brewers up for arbitration, fellow relievers Kameron Loe and Manny Parra, are also candidates for being outrighted.
