Hader joined the Brewers through a trade medium. His previous team, Houston Astros traded him alongside Brett Phillips, Domingo Santana, and Adrian Houser to the Milwaukee Brewers for Carlos Gómez and Mike Fiers.

Right after his MB trade, Josh was assigned Hader to the Biloxi Shuckers of the Class AA Southern League where he finished the season with a 3.03 ERA combined.

Hader made history by being the first pitcher to record eight strikeouts in a game that lasted less than three innings.

He pitched a two-plus-thirds-inning save against the Cincinnati Reds, facing nine batters and striking out eight while walking one.

Hader was named to the 2018 MLB All-Star Game after posting a 1.21 ERA and 83 strikeouts in 44 innings.

Hader pitched in the top of the eighth inning of the 2018 All-Star Game. He gave up hits to Shin-Soo Choo of the Rangers and George Springer of the Astros before Mariners’ Jean Segura launched a home ball to left field to put the American All-Stars up 5–2.

Hader was substituted after 26 pitches, allowing four hits and one out over five batters, after giving up a single to Boston Red Sox infielder Mitch Moreland.

Josh Hader set a record in Major League Baseball as the first-ever non-full-time closer to winning the National League Reliever of the Year Award. He earned the prestigious award in the 2018 season.
