Brewers bullpen depth chart entering 2022

Relief pitching corps:

LHP Josh Hader (closer)

RHP Devin Williams (set-up)

LHP Brent Suter

RHP Jake Cousins

LHP Aaron Ashby

RHP Trevor Gott

LHP Hoby Milner

RHP Jandel Gustave

LHP Angel Perdomo

Depth: RHP J.C. Mejia, RHP Miguel Sanchez, RHP Justin Topa, LHP Rex Brothers, RHP Trevor Kelley, RHP Connor Sadzeck, RHP Zack Brown

Josh Hader will return for another season as the Brewers ninth-inning man after an incredible 2021 season in which he finished with a 1.23 ERA and 102 strikeouts in just 58 innings. Devin Williams is becoming a relief-ace in his own right and he will be first up should Hader get injured or traded. He will function as a 7th or 8th inning set-up man in the mean time.

Brent Suter, the longest tenured Milwaukee Brewer, will return in a sort of oft-used swingman role. Suter is capable of starting but seems to have found a home as a relief pitching option who is capable of eating innings. Cousins, Ashby, Perdomo and Sanchez all saw their first significant major league action last season and all should return this upcoming season.

Craig Counsell goes through a lot of different relievers over the course of a season, and there still is likely to be at least one or two more additions signed to this bullpen once the lockout ends.

Gott, Gustave and Milner are all veterans and will surely see plenty of chances for the Milwaukee Brewers in 2022. Gott has some closing experience and Gustave and Milner have both been reliable bullpen arms in the past for the Astros and Rays respectively.
