    The Milwaukee Brewers have been without a few key players for the past couple of weeks and today they get two back on the active roster. Both starting pitcher Brandon Woodruff and second basemen Kolten Wong have been returned from the injured list.

    Brandon Woodruff last pitched for Milwaukee on May 27 and hit the injured list with a right ankle sprain. His departure coupled with that of Freddy Peralta has put the starting staff in a bing. Woodruff returns to the big leagues sporting a 4.74 ERA through his first nine starts. Woodruff is dealing with Raynaud's Syndrome, a circulatory issue that causes numbness in extremities, particularly fingers. After successfully making two minor league rehab starts, he has been deemed ready to return to the Milwaukee rotation.

    Milwaukee will certainly be hoping to have their Cy Young candidate back when Woodruff settles in, and the 3.82 FIP suggests there’s better production to be had. Woodruff has been burned a bit by the longball this season, but has remained consistent with dominant strikeout numbers. Right-handed pitcher Trevor Kelley was optioned to Triple-A Nashville in a corresponding move.

    It appeared likely that Kolten Wong would return today after Milwaukee optioned third basemen Pablo Reyes to Triple-A yesterday. Wong was placed on the injured list with a right calf strain retroactive to June 8. He has a .709 OPS for The Crew across 52 games this season.
