Breaking: Devin Williams Out For the Year

Brewers Reliever Breaks His Hand Right Before the Postseason

The Brewers announced today that Devin Williams has broken his pitching hand. He will likely be out of the rest of the season. The reigning Rookie of the Year injured his own hand during the team’s celebration on Sunday after clinching the National League Central Division title.

As a key member of the Brewers bullpen, this is obviously a big blow to Milwaukee as the postseason gets closer. David Stearns said that there’s a chance that Williams could return if the Brewers make the World Series, but it is extremely unlikely that he is able to make a return any sooner than that.

Although this is a huge hit to the Brewers’ end of the game strategy, the Brewers have a lot of players who can step into Williams’ role and have been doing so at various points throughout the season. Relievers Jake Cousins or Brad Boxberger will likely assume the 8th inning job for the rest of the season, and the start of the postseason. The other option would be Hader taking up two innings of relief, but that would result in him being available less often during the postseason.

The Brewers must find a way to fill the gap Williams has irresponsibly left, otherwise, there will be a lot of angry Brewers fans this October.
