  • Brewers Send Aaron Ashby to the Injured List

    If there’s been something that’s a constant for Milwaukee this year it’s been injuries to their starting pitching staff. The latest casualty was Aaron Ashby.

    Earlier this year the Milwaukee Brewers inked Aaron Ashby to a five-year contract extension worth $20.5 million. It can effectively stretch to a seven-year deal worth $46 million. Unfortunately, for now he won’t be able to help the team on the field.

    After making a start on August 19, allowing six runs on eight hits across five innings, Ashby was reported to have an arm issue. Today it was announced he was being placed on the 15-day injured list with left shoulder inflammation. The move was retroactive to August 20.

    The hope would be that Ashby will just miss the minimum for Milwaukee, but they trail in the National League Central division and can’t afford to be without one of their key starters for any amount of time. He owns a 4.58 ERA across 96.1 innings this season.

    Recalled to take his roster spot, Jason Alexander returns to the Major League roster again this season. He’s made seven spot starts and appeared in 12 games totaling 48 2/3 innings. Alexander owns a 5.18 ERA and will look to give the Brewers better work than he has thus far.
