Brewers Lose Another Ace Starter To The Injured List

With Freddy Peralta already out for a couple of months, the last thing the Milwaukee Brewers needed is another front-line starter to go down. Unfortunately, that's the case today as Brandon Woodruff has been placed on the IL.

According to Brewers reporter Sophia Minnaert, Woodruff said he just can't throw the way he needs to with the high ankle sprain.   

The diagnosis, overall, is seen as a "best case scenario" however, and it's hoped that he'll miss the minimum 15 days. 

Woodruff left Friday's night's start against the St. Louis Cardinals, with "ankle inflammation." The imaging revealed the high ankle sprain.

The six-year veteran is a two-time All-Star, and finished 5th in Cy Young Award voting last season. Currently, he's 5-3 with a 4.74 ERA, while striking out 10.9 batters per 9 innings.
