Milwaukee Brewers Starting Pitcher "To Miss A Couple Months"

Tough news for the young pitcher.

Milwaukee Brewers general manager Craig Counsell said Thursday that he expects pitcher Aaron Ashby to miss "a couple of months" due to right shoulder inflammation.

Earlier this month, it was reported that Ashby was dealing with shoulder fatigue so, in the long run, this may actually not be that bad news for the young pitcher, seeing as how he was probably going to have his innings limited this season anyways.

The Brewers will likely bring Ashby back as a starter, barring any setbacks in his recovery.

The twenty-four year-old's performance last season was underwhelming, finishing with a 4.44 ERA, 1.43 WHIP, and 126 strikeouts across 107.1 innings and 19 starts. 

With Ashby out, Wade Miley will take over as the Brewers' fifth starter.
