When the Milwaukee Brewers and St. Louis Cardinals were playing on Tuesday night Wade Miley was removed from the game in just the second inning. At that time it was thought that he sustained a LAT strain. After going home to Milwaukee and undergoing testing this has turned out to not be the case.
Starting pitcher Wade Miley, who has an extensive injury history consisting of nine different stints on the injured list from 2017-2022, has been diagnosed with a strain of the posterior serratus muscle. As reported by Adam McCalvy of the Brewers this is rare for a baseball player and puts some uncertainty in his time to return.
Wade Miley of the Milwaukee Brewers has a rare injury, which puts uncertainty in his return timeline.
Per Brewers manager Craig Counsell, Wade Miley is expected to miss around 6-8 weeks with the caveat of this not being a well known injury in baseball players. This injury may push Brewers pitcher Eric Lauer back into the starting rotation for they are already without Brandon Woodruff and Aaron Ashby. Adrian Houser has been starting games since returning from the injured list and Colin Rea, who was briefly in the rotation, is currently in Triple-A.
It will be interesting to see how the Brewers fare without Wade Miley over the next 1.5-2 months. He’s been one of their most consistent starters on the mound this year, so his loss will have an impact on the team.
