Milwaukee Brewers reliever Devin Williams fractures right hand and will miss the remainder of the season

There is an outside chance he could be back if the Brewers make the World Series

MLB: Philadelphia Phillies at Milwaukee Brewers Michael McLoone-USA TODAY Sports

The Milwaukee Brewers will be missing one of their most important players for the rest of the regular season and at least most of the post season. Former Rookie of the Year and Reliever of the Year, Devin Williams fractured his right hand after punching a wall.

Here is David Stearns and Devin Williams discussing. There is an outside chance, Williams would play in the World Series if they were fortunate enough to make it.

The injury will require surgery. The loss of Williams is a huge blow to the Brewers. The back of Milwaukee’s bullpen will not be feared in the same way by any stretch. In 2021, Williams covered 54 innings and pitched to a 2.50 ERA even after a rough start to the beginning of his season.

In response to the Williams loss, the Brewers are bringing up Colin Rea from AAA Nashville. Milwaukee has also designated Tim Lopes for assignment.
