Brewers: SP Brett Anderson Put On 10-Day IL

The injury train continues for Milwaukee Brewers starting pitcher Brett Anderson.

The lefty has gotten some extremely bad breaks during the 2021 season. The latest after he was hit in his throwing arm from a 103mph line drive by Brandon Crawford. Obviously not intention, but could have been a lot worse and going for his head before Anderson turned his shoulder towards the ball.


It was in the second inning of the Brewers 6-2 victory over the San Francisco Giants and clinched their series win of four games and their third straight against the Giants. Anderson was able to complete the second inning, but did not return to the game. The fact that he was even able to finish the inning and not allow a run was quite a sight to see.

It was second start in a row where he had to leave the game early, and the third official time he will be hitting the injured list. The first stint was in late April after a strained right hamstring. His second was another 10 days in late June with a right knee contusion, with his third starting today.

Brett Anderson Makes Brewers' Debut

Brewers Still Set For Success

Luckily, the Brewers currently have a 10.5 game lead in the NL Central, and have depth at the starting position. Eric Lauer and Aaron Ashby have been great as fill-in starters during the multiple injuries this year. Freddy Peralta also returns from his IL stint this Friday at American Family Field against the St. Louis Cardinals.

On the year, Anderson is 4-8 with a 4.18 ERA over 21 starts. Many of those have been cut short. The 33-year-old should hopefully be able to return after the 10 days and be able to help the Brewers clinch the NL Central.

And as always, Brett has one of the best Twitter accounts around.
