MILWAUKEE (AP) — The Milwaukee Brewers avoided going to arbitration with pitchers Josh Hader and Brandon Woodruff by signing the former All-Stars to one-year contracts.

Hader signed for $6.675 million while Woodruff agreed to a $3.275 million deal.

The agreements mean the Brewers won’t have any arbitration cases heading into the 2021 season.

Hader was 1-2 with an NL-leading 13 saves and a career-high 3.79 ERA in 21 games last year. Woodruff went 3-5 with a 3.05 ERA and 91 strikeouts in 73 2/3 innings.
