When Corey Knebel went out with an injured hamstring on April 8, he was expected to miss around six weeks, though was hopeful he could be back in four weeks. It now looks like the four week estimate could end up coming true for him.

Prior to today’s game, Todd Rosiak of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel gave an update on the plan for Corey Knebel:

That’s a good sign after the initial injury made it look like Knebel would be out for an extended period of time, potentially the season. Knebel had been throwing off of a mound for a little while, and a rehab assignment is the last step before he made a return. Assignments to Biloxi are common on the rehab side for the Brewers, as it provides a more stable pitching environment for the pitchers to work in. If all goes well for Knebel in Biloxi, he could make a return on the next road trip, which starts on May 10 in Colorado and then goes to Arizona.
