Brewers starter Wade Miley will miss four to six weeks with a strained right oblique, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. Miley suffered the injury during the first inning of Tuesday’s start against the Indians.

Miley, 31, started the season on the disabled list with a strained groin, so he’s only made two starts for the Brewers during the regular season. He’s given up just one run on four hits and four walks with four strikeouts in 6 1/3 innings. The Brewers signed Miley to a minor league contract in February.

LOS ANGELES — The Los Angeles Dodgers signed outfielder Jason Heyward to a minor league deal and invited him to spring training.

The 33-year-old was released by the Chicago Cubs earlier this offseason.

Heyward, who was injured at times last season, put up the worst offensive numbers of his career, batting .204 and with 10 RBIs and one home run in 137 plate appearances. However, he’s a valuable defender in the outfield.

The deal reunites Heyward with first baseman Freddie Freeman. They came up through the Atlanta Braves system and have remained friends ever since.

Heyward was a leader in the Cubs’ clubhouse, helping them win the 2016 World Series.
