Another Brewers Starter Suffers an Oblique Injury: Jhoulys Chacin This Time

Chicago Cubs

The Brewers already needed to add a starting pitcher in the minds of most before one of their best pitchers, Brandon Woodruff, went down for the next six-ish weeks with an oblique injury.

Then today, the Brewers rotation suffered *ANOTHER* oblique injury:

Before you get too weepy for the Brewers, know that Chacin has actually been quite terrible this year, so it’s not altogether clear that even an emergency fill-in is going to be a downgrade for them.

That said, an arm off the board is an arm off the board, and the Brewers – should they still fancy themselves contenders for the postseason (as they would seem to) – might now be all the more incentivized to go after an arm on the trade market. Stay tuned.
