Anderson, a right hander, had an 8-4 record in 2019 and posted a 4.21 earned run average.
Murray followed up his report by adding that the team was considering not picking up his option for 2020.
The team option next season would have paid out $8.5 million.
Blue Jays’ reporter Scott Mitchell says that the Brewers will receive Chad Spanberger a 24-year old first baseman in return.
