Brewers News and Notes

Yesterday was a very eventful day for the Brewers. First off, they had a double-header yesterday against the Cardinals that was filled with roster moves. The Brewers had waited until a few hours before game time to announce the game one starter, and it was a big annoucement: Brandon Woodruff would be added to the roster to make the game one start. He was officially added, taking Rob Scahill’s roster spot, and Brent Suter was brought up as well to serve as the 26th man for the day. Travis Shaw also returned, with his daughter recovering and in better condition back home. However, during warm-ups, Woodruff’s hamstring tightened up on him, and he was unable to make his start. Instead, Brent Suter was told he would be starting on short notice. Suter made the start and did reasonably well, pitching into the fifth inning and allowing just three runs. However, the bullpen struggled again, and the offense couldn’t do anything, and the Brewers were shut out in game one.

In the break between game one and two, the Brewers made another roster move, placing Brandon Woodruff on the 10-day DL with the hamstring injury, and recall Paolo Espino from Colorado Springs, who was pitching in Memphis that day. Espino had to be driven from Memphis to St. Louis for the game. In the second game, the Brewers offense did show up, scoring five runs early. Once again, though, the bullpen blew the lead, allowing the Cardinals to tie the game at 5-5. However, the Brewers offense didn’t stop, adding three more runs to retake the lead, and Corey Knebel secured an 8-5 win.

In addition to the game, the MLB draft continued into day two, with eight more players being selected by the team. They chose six college and two high school players, with an even 4/4 split of pitchers and position players. The third and final day of the draft is today, with the Brewers in place to pick thirty more players to add to their system.
