Leave a comment

Brewers starter Wade Miley left his start Tuesday night against the Indians due to a strained oblique muscle.

Miley faced four batters in the top of the first inning before walking off the mound in pain, holding his right side. The club will likely evaluate him further tomorrow, but strained obliques almost always mean 4-6 weeks on the disabled list.

In others Brewers injury news, catcher Stephen Vogt has reportedly suffered a career-threatening shoulder injury while rehabbing in the minors. Specifically, reports the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, an MRI revealed that Vogt damaged his rotator cuff, labrum and capsule making a throw to third base with Class AA Biloxi.

Vogt, 33, was close to rejoining the Brewers after rehabbing a shoulder strain suffered in spring training.

Mets trade Wilmer Font to the Blue Jays

The Mets announced a few minutes ago that they have traded Wilmer Font to Toronto for cash considerations.

Font was acquired by the Mets from Tampa Bay for a player to be named later back in early May. That player to be named later was later named: Neraldo Catalina. Catalina is 19 and is playing rookie ball right now. The Mets have now turned him into cash. I suppose we’ll see if that was a good idea in a few years.

As for the Jays, they get a pitcher who posted a 5.79 ERA in 10 relief appearances for the Rays and then started three games and relieved 12 in New York to the tune of a 4.94 ERA. On the season he has a combined K/BB ratio of 42/18 in 45 innings.

He’s an arm. He cost cash. That’s about all I have to say about that.
