Wade Miley of the Milwaukee Brewer suffered a rare injury in mid-May as he was diagnosed with a posterior serratus strain. The Brewers initially projected that he would miss 6-8 weeks, but remained hesitant with that timeline due to this being an unusual injury diagnosis for a pitcher.
As luck would have it Wade Miley is currently ahead of schedule. The Brewers have indicated that he threw a bullpen while the team was in Toronto and if he stays healthy a mid-June return could be possible.
Milwaukee Brewers starting pitcher Wade Miley could return after just four weeks on the IL.
Since 2017 Wade Miley has ended up on the injured list on ten different occasions. Oftentimes his injuries have caused him to miss substantial time. It’s encouraging that so far he is ahead of schedule because he was pitching quite well for the Brewers prior to the injury.
The Brewers could also be welcoming back pitchers Eric Lauer and Matt Bush in the near future as well. Both pitchers are throwing bullpens on the road trip and if all goes well will begin rehab assignments when Milwaukee returns back to Wisconsin for their next home stand.
With Eric Lauer and Wade Miley out the Brewers have used Colin Rea and Julio Teheran as starting pitchers. Rea has minor league options remaining and could be the odd man out once one of Lauer or Miley is ready to return. Teheran has pitched well through two starts, but likely remains on a short leash.
