Former Brewer Chase Anderson talks trade to Blue Jays

The Brewers traded pitcher Chase Anderson to the Blue Jays earlier this month, but that’s not stopping him from still fulfilling commitments in Wisconsin.

Anderson was part of a Fellowship for Christian Athletes Event on Thursday in Marshfield, where he was asked about the days leading up to the trade and his upcoming tenure in Toronto.

“I knew that something might be in the works because I had an option for the next season, 2020, and they had five days to pick that up or decline it after the World Series is over with,” Anderson said. “I knew that four days gone by, and I hadn’t heard nothing from them, so I knew they were trying to work something out in a trade. I think the biggest thing is it’s exciting too. Going somewhere new. Playing for a country in Canada, not just a state or city. Vlad Guerrero Jr. Cavan Biggio. Bo Bichette. I think the average age in the infield was 22-years-old. I’m 10 years older than that almost. It’s pretty wild that I’m still playing professionally.”

In his four seasons in Milwaukee, Anderson was 38-21 with a 3.81 ERA.
