Update: An MRI reveals a more significant strain and Anderson is expected to miss 4-6 weeks.
Milwaukee Brewers starting pitcher Chase Anderson exited Wednesday’s 4-3 against the Cincinnati Reds after pitching just one inning with a strained left oblique. Anderson was at the plate for his first at-bat in the top of the second when he suffered the injury.
Anderson may undergo an MRI to determine the severity of the injury. If it is just a strain, expect Anderson to sit out for two to four weeks, using rest and anti-inflammatories to return to full health. A trip to the 10-day disabled list seems likely.
The 29-year old is in the midst of a breakout 2017 season, as he is currently 6-2 with a 2.89 earned run average in 90.1 innings pitched for the upstart Brewers.
