Brewers’ Corbin Burnes says he was blamed for po absence’ in arbitration

There’s a reason why major league clubs don’t like to battle players in salary arbitration, and Milwaukee Brewers ace Corbin Burnes highlighted several of them Thursday. 

The 2021 National League Cy Young Award winner lost his arbitration case against the Brewers, a third party awarding him $10.01 million for 2023, as the Brewers suggested, compared to the $10.75 million he sought. 

Turns out the brawl over $749,000 was of the bare-knuckle variety. 

Burnes told reporters Thursday that the Brewers essentially blamed him for the club missing the 2022 postseason, one year after his major league-leading  2.43 ERA and 1.63 fielding independent pitching helped claim the Cy Young and the Brewers the 2021 NL Central title.
