Brewers Place Starter on IL

The Milwaukee Brewers are losing one of their starters. 

The team has placed starter Aaron Ashby on the 15-day injured list, retroactive to August 20, with left shoulder inflammation. 

It's not clear whether this is something Ashby has been trying to work through, although it would make sense as he pitched brutally on Friday against the Chicago Cubs, allowing eight hits and six runs over five innings. 

Ashby was in line to square off against the Los Angeles Dodgers on Wednesday, but that obviously won't happen now.

Ashby leaves behind a 4.58 ERA, 1.43 WHIP, and 116 strikeouts in 96 innings. It's been an up and down season for the twenty-four-year-old, who signed a long-term extension with the Brewers earlier this season.
