Brewers pick up options on Gallardo and Ramirez

Posted: Updated:

 The Brewers made a flurry of moves on Friday. They picked up their club options on Yovani Gallardo and Aramis Ramirez while declining their option on Rickie Weeks.

Gallardo will return to Milwaukee on a $13 million option. The 28-year old posted a 8-11 record with a 3.51 ERA over 32 starts this past season.

The Brewers also picked up their half of a $14 million mutual option on Ramirez's contract. The 36-year old has three days to decide whether he will pick up his part of the option and return to Milwaukee next season. Ramirez hit .285 with 15 home runs and 66 RBI this past season.

This likely marked the end of Weeks' career in Milwaukee. The club turned down his $11.5 million option. The 32-year old hit .274 with eight home runs and 29 RBI while splitting the second base duties with Scooter Gennett.
