Star Milwaukee Brewers shortstop Willy Adames had a scary injury on Friday May 26, 2023 against the San Francisco Giants. While leaning over the dugout railing he was struck in the face with a 90 MPH foul ball. He was responsive, immediately removed from the game, and eventually was hospitalized and monitored over night.
After some testing the Brewers revealed that he did not sustain any fractures and was being placed on the seven day concussion injured list. It’s been four days since that frightening scene and manager Craig Counsell provided an update as to how he is doing.
Milwaukee Brewers manager Craig Counsell provides an injury update on Willy Adames.
During a phone interview on 620 WTMJ, Craig Counsell indicated that Willy Adames “looks like he’s been in a fight with a big black eye”. Counsell also said, “He’s not doing any activities right now. We’ll have a better idea (of his health) the next couple of days.”
Willy Adames is currently not traveling with the Brewers on their seven game road trip. The plan is for him to eventually work out, but he has to pass some tests first. How much he can do will be dictated by that.
At this time it’s unclear how long Adames will remain out for. It sounds like the Brewers are currently taking it day-by-day. Once he is able to start doing light activities a better timeline might become available.
