MannyWatch: MbM went 2 for 4 with a home run, two runs, a walk and three RBI in last night’s Round Rock win. That, combined with Lance Berkman being all gimpy could mean that Manny’s return is closer than we imagined.

And thank God for that. Baseball is gonna need a big marketable star on the scene to distract the public from all of the drug suspensions that are gonna happen.

Brewers pitcher Brandon Woodruff exited Sunday afternoon’s start against the Diamondbacks in the fourth inning due to abdominal discomfort, the team announced. He threw a pitch to leadoff batter Tim Locastro and left the field with a trainer. Junior Guerra relieved him.

In three-plus innings, Woodruff was on the hook for four runs on six hits and two walks with three strikeouts. He now carries a 3.75 ERA with a 136/29 K/BB ratio in 117 2/3 innings of work.

Woodruff will undergo testing, which should allow the team to provide an update on his status, likely on Monday.
