Brewers Will Be Without Keston Hiura This Weekend and Beyond

Chicago Cubs

Really tough blow for a Brewers team that is already on the ropes in the NL Central and the NL Wild Card races: they’re gonna be missing rookie Kesto Hiura for the foreseeable future with a hamstring strain.

As we know all too well with hamstring injuries, they keep you down for several weeks, even if they’re mild, so the Brewers figure to be without Hiura not only this weekend against the Cubs, but also next weekend, when the teams meet for their final four head-to-head series (four games at Wrigley Field).

That is a rough one, as Hiura has hit .301/.369/.571 (138 wRC+) in his rookie campaign, and had become really the only seriously dangerous offensive threat outside of Christian Yelich. Travis Shaw could see a lot of time in Hiura’s stead, but he’s been an absolute disaster at the big league level this year (.162/.276/.279, 45 wRC+).

Also, in case you were wondering, there should NOT be cause for retaliation today:
