Brewers and Cardinals Stuff: Flyer on Miller, Yadi’s Bum Thumb

Chicago Cubs

A couple NL Central foe items for you tonight, as the Cardinals are gonna be without their catcher for a bit, and the Brewers have picked up a pitcher flyer.

I will presume that Yadi Molina’s thumb injury was not related to his Instagram reply flurry over the weekend. But it would be funny, in a Carlos Zambrano kind of way, if it were. The injury actually already kept Molina out for a while earlier this year.

Molina isn’t expected to need surgery, and could be back within a few weeks. Still, it is never a good thing for that pitching staff when Molina is unavailable.

As for the Brewers:

Miller, who is still only 28, has been a disaster of injuries and awfulness since his great season with the Braves back in 2015. His latest run was 44.0 innings of 8.59-ERA baseball with the Rangers, with peripherals that mostly supported it. Maybe the Brewers can unlock something he’s been missing these last few years, but if I were a Brewers fan, I’d hardly be counting on it.

I would still expect them to be thoroughly in the market to add an arm.
