The Milwaukee Brewers started their current series with the Minnesota Twins by lining up “TBD” behind Chase Anderson in the series opener. After last night’s 7-5 loss, manager Craig Counsell told reporters that Gio Gonzalez would start the series finale on Wednesday afternoon, after the idea of a bullpen day had been previously tossed around.
Gonzalez last started for Milwaukee on August 9th against Texas, going five innings while allowing just one earned run. That would put him on a normal amount of rest coming into today’s outing. Gonzalez has been excellent for the Brewers this year since signing in late April, at least when he’s been healthy; he owns a 3.20 ERA in 10 starts and 50.2 innings pitched, but his limited Spring Training may have had some lingering effects into the regular season, as Gio missed nearly two months of action in June and July with dead arm and shoulder soreness issues.
