Milwaukee Brewers Activate Pitcher

The Milwaukee Brewers have activated Aaron Ashby from the injured list. 

Ashby has been out since late August due to shoulder inflammation. Yet, the 24-year-old is set to return for the Brewers, and it could not have come at a better time. The Brewers are currently aiming to cement themselves a spot in the playoffs. They trail the Philadelphia Phillies by two games for the final Wild Card spot, so they need to get hot now. Thus, getting a pitcher like Ashby back could be a way to help that.

Before his injury, Ashby struggled, however. In 27 appearances, he has a 2-10 record to go along with a 4.58 ERA. Let's see if he can turn things around now that he is fully healthy during a crucial part of the campaign.
