Fans of the Milwaukee Brewers were understandably frustrated with the front office for their lack of activity in the free agent market.
However, some of those concerns were put to rest late on Wednesday, when the Brewers added a veteran starter to their rotation.
The team agreed to terms with left-hander Wade Miley on a one-year, $4.5 million contract.
The veteran lefty was limited to just nine appearances and eight starts in 2022 with the Chicago Cubs.
Miley went 2-2 with a 3.16 ERA in those appearances.
The 36-year-old also has a chance to make up to $6 million with incentives.
Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic was the first to report the news.

Milwaukee already features a powerful starting rotation that consists of Corbin Burnes, Brandon Woodruff, and Freddy Peralta.
Adding Miley to the mix strengthens their rotation.
Miley of course struggled with injuries in 2022, but if he can remain healthy, he could prove to be a viable option in the Brewers starting rotation.
For his career, Miley owns an ERA of 4.13 and has won a total of 99 games.
The 36-year-old came to the Majors in 2011 with the Arizona Diamondbacks before brief stops with the Boston Red Sox, Seattle Mariners, Baltimore Orioles, Brewers, Houston Astros, Cincinnati Reds, and Cubs.
Miley spent the 2018 season with the Brewers and had a mostly successful season, going 5-2 with a 2.57 ERA in 16 starts.
The Brewers fell short of the postseason in 2022 despite winning 86 games during the regular season.
They finished one game behind the Philadelphia Phillies for the final NL Wild Card spot.
