Brewers Injuries
Player Image
Pablo AbreuMIL | CF
Undergoes minor procedure
Abreu revealed on his personal Instagram feed that he underwent elbow surgery, but president of baseball operations David Stearns revealed that the injury is minor, and he's expected to be ready to play in the spring. The 21-year-old could potentially be added to the 40-man roster in the coming days to protect him from the Rule 5 draft.
OUT
Player Image
Caden LemonsMIL | P
Almost back from hip surgery
He did not make the instructional league roster, but it sounds like Lemons will be ready to go for spring training. A second-round pick in 2017, Lemons has not pitched since 2018, so he will have to make up for lost time in 2021.
OUT
Player Image
Zack BrownMIL | SP
Battling shoulder fatigue
Though Counsell was unwilling to provide a definitive timeline on Brown's return, the skipper confirmed that the right-hander wouldn't appear in any more Cactus League games while he manages the shoulder issue, according to Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. The Brewers don't believe Brown's shoulder issue is a long-term concern, so he could still have a realistic chance at being ready to go for the start of the Triple-A season, which has been pushed back to early May.
OUT
Player Image
Luis PerdomoMIL | RP
Heading to Milwaukee
The 27-year-old was released by the Friars in late November shortly after being designated for assignment, but he's now latched on with a new team. Perdomo underwent Tommy John surgery in October and will miss the entirety of the 2021 campaign, but the Brewers will bring him into the organization with an eye on 2022.
OUT
Player Image
Noah ZavolasMIL | P
Placed on injured list
It's not clear what landed Zavolas on the injured list, but he has not pitched in a week, and will miss more time due to his injury. Zavolas is throwing well in his first season in the Milwaukee organization, going 6-5 with a 2.98 ERA, 1.14 WHIP, and 102:23 K:BB in 133 innings over 22 starts.
OUT
Player Image
Thomas JankinsMIL | SP
Shut down with flexor strain
The 25-year-old was pulled from Friday's spring matchup with the Cubs after experiencing some forearm stiffness, and he'll now be prevented from throwing for a time. Jankins was reassigned to minor-league camp last week and should be headed for Triple-A at the start of the season, if he's healthy.
OUT
Player Image
Dylan FileMIL | SP
Out after elbow surgery
The 24-year-old underwent the procedure in early February and was given a recovery timeline up to four months, so he's already over three weeks into his recovery. File was added to the 40-man roster in November to protect him from the Rule 5 draft, but he may not be available in 2020 until June. The right-hander had a 2.79 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 73:15 K:BB over 80.2 innings at Double-A Biloxi in 2019, and he spent the entirety of last season at Milwaukee's alternate training site.
OUT
Player Image
Alec BettingerMIL | SP
Slowed by elbow soreness
The injury doesn't sound like it will significantly impede Bettinger's preseason preparation. While he's on the Brewers' 40-man roster, he's yet to pitch above Double-A, so he's unlikely to be in serious consideration for an Opening Day roster spot.
OUT
Player Image
Antoine KellyMIL | SP
Recovering from surgery
The 21-year-old is without an official timeline for his return, though he's expected to take the mound sometime over the summer. Kelly was drafted in the second round by the Brewers in 2019 and spent most of 2019 at rookie ball, where he compiled a 1.26 ERA, 0.92 WHIP and 41:5 K:BB over 28.2 innings. He also worked at the alternate training site last season.
OUT
Player Image
Justin TopaMIL | RP
Shifts to 60-day IL
Milwaukee was already preparing for Topa to remain sidelined for the first half of the season while he recovers from a right elbow flexor strain, so the move to the 60-day IL won't have any bearing on his timeline. Instead, the transaction frees up a spot on the 40-man roster for reliever Brad Boxberger, whose contract was selected from the alternate site in a corresponding move.
60IL
Player Image
Derek FisherMIL | LF
Heads to IL
Fisher's bid for the Opening Day roster ended when he suffered a left hamstring strain in a March 14 Cactus League game. Billy McKinney ended up breaking camp with Milwaukee as the fifth outfielder behind Christian Yelich, Lorenzo Cain, Jackie Bradley and Avisail Garcia.
10IL
Player Image
Lorenzo CainMIL | CF
Sitting Saturday
He is the odd man out of the Brewers' four-man outfield mix in this matinee. Cain is 3-for-16 with two home runs, three strikeouts and one walk through four games.
10IL
Player Image
Bobby WahlMIL | RP
Transferred to 60-day IL
This move clears a spot on the 40-man roster for Jace Peterson, whose contract was selected from the alternate training site. Wahl is out with an oblique strain but could return sometime this summer.
60IL
Player Image
Kolten WongMIL | 2B
lands on 10-day IL
Wong missed Wednesday's game against the Cubs due to oblique tightness and was removed in the seventh inning of Thursday's matchup due to the same issue. Daniel Robertson and Luis Urias could see increased time at second base while Wong recovers. Jace Peterson was recalled by Milwaukee in a corresponding move.
10IL
Player Image
Jacob NottinghamMIL | C
Moves to IL
Nottingham was one of four Milwaukee players placed on the IL as the Brewers pared down their active roster to 26 men in advance of Opening Day. The 25-year-old didn't see any action behind the plate this spring while recovering from left thumb surgery, but he was cleared to catch bullpen sessions before the end of camp. He doesn't appear on track to miss significant time to begin the season.
10IL
Player Image
Luis UríasMIL | 2B
Retreats to bench Monday
Urias went 0-for-13 with a run, one stolen base, four walks and four strikeouts in his last four games. Daniel Robertson will take over at shortstop for Monday's series opener, batting eighth.
DTD
Player Image
Mark MathiasMIL | 2B
Won't need surgery
Even without surgery, Mathias will miss an extended period, as he's been placed on the 60-day injured list. He'll remain at the Brewers' spring training facility for rehab work. His exact return timeline isn't clear.
60IL
Player Image
Dustin PetersonMIL | RF
Exits after collision
Peterson colliding with right fielder Tyrone Taylor while chasing a flyball. He was able to walk off under his own power, so he may have avoided a serious injury.
DTD
Player Image
Christian YelichMIL | RF
not starting Monday
Yelich left Sunday's win over the Cardinals in the second inning due to lower-back tightness, and he'll get an additional day off to recover. He's still considered day-to-day, but Jackie Bradley will shift to left field while Lorenzo Cain starts in center field Monday.
10IL
Player Image
Tim LopesMIL | 2B
Lands on 60-day injured list
Lopes' move to the 60-day IL means that he won't be eligible to make his Brewers debut until at least late May. The transaction clears a spot on the 40-man roster for the newly-signed Jackie Bradley.
60IL
 
Cardinals Injuries
Player Image
Ricardo SánchezSTL | SP
Parts ways with Cards
Sanchez will begin exploring his options elsewhere after St. Louis cast him off its 40-man roster over the weekend. The lefty made three appearances out of the Cardinals bullpen in 2020 before being shut down with elbow tightness in late August. The 23-year-old underwent Tommy John surgery just over a month later, so he's unlikely to pitch in affiliated ball again until 2022.
OUT
Player Image
Julio RodriguezSTL | C
Dealing with wrist injury
The specifics of the injury remain unclear, but it appears the 23-year-old will have a delayed start to spring training. Rodriguez will be evaluated at the spring facility within the next couple days, so his status should be updated soon.
OUT
Player Image
Harrison BaderSTL | CF
Not yet cleared to swing
Bader was expected to miss at least four weeks after he suffered a left forearm strain in late March. He doesn't yet have a timetable for his return, but the 26-year-old isn't necessarily behind schedule in his recovery. Bader has been running the bases and doing work with one arm, but the team appears to be bringing him along slowly to prevent another flare up. Lane Thomas and Dylan Carlson should continue to fill in as the center fielder in Bader's absence while Justin Williams and Austin Dean see additional playing time in the outfield.
10IL
Player Image
Tyler O'NeillSTL | LF
Lands on injured list
The 25-year-old exited Saturday's loss to Milwaukee with right groin tightness, and the injury has now been diagnosed as a strain. O'Neill will be eligible to be activated April 21, though it's unclear if he'll be healthy by that point. Lane Thomas was promoted to bolster the Cardinals' outfield depth.
10IL
Player Image
Miles MikolasSTL | SP
Throws bullpen Monday
Mikolas was shut down in mid-March after experiencing shoulder soreness, but he's resumed mound work recently. The right-hander will likely require at least one more bullpen session before he's cleared to face hitters for the first time since the first week of spring training. While Mikolas' progress has been encouraging so far, it's still not clear when he could return to game action.
10IL
Player Image
Dakota HudsonSTL | SP
Lands on IL
After undergoing Tommy John surgery in late September of last season, Hudson is projected to miss the entire 2021 campaign while he completes the arduous rehab process. Though he'll be on the 10-day IL to open the season, Hudson will likely be shifted to the 60-day IL as soon as the Cardinals need to open up a spot on the 40-man roster.

Kelly was drafted in the second round by the Brewers in 2019 and spent most of 2019 at rookie ball, where he compiled a 1.26 ERA, 0.92 WHIP and 41:5 K:BB over 28.2 innings. He also worked at the alternate training site last season.

Justin TopaMIL | RP
Shifts to 60-day IL
Milwaukee was already preparing for Topa to remain sidelined for the first half of the season while he recovers from a right elbow flexor strain, so the move to the 60-day IL won't have any bearing on his timeline. Instead, the transaction frees up a spot on the 40-man roster for reliever Brad Boxberger, whose contract was selected from the alternate site in a corresponding move.

Heads to IL
Fisher's bid for the Opening Day roster ended when he suffered a left hamstring strain in a March 14 Cactus League game. Billy McKinney ended up breaking camp with Milwaukee as the fifth outfielder behind Christian Yelich, Lorenzo Cain, Jackie Bradley and Avisail Garcia.

Kolten WongMIL | 2B
lands on 10-day IL
Wong missed Wednesday's game against the Cubs due to oblique tightness and was removed in the seventh inning of Thursday's matchup due to the same issue. Daniel Robertson and Luis Urias could see increased time at second base while Wong recovers. Jace Peterson was recalled by Milwaukee in a corresponding move.

Jacob NottinghamMIL | C
Moves to IL
Nottingham was one of four Milwaukee players placed on the IL as the Brewers pared down their active roster to 26 men in advance of Opening Day. The 25-year-old didn't see any action behind the plate this spring while recovering from left thumb surgery, but he was cleared to catch bullpen sessions before the end of camp. He doesn't appear on track to miss significant time to begin the season.

Won't need surgery
Even without surgery, Mathias will miss an extended period, as he's been placed on the 60-day injured list. He'll remain at the Brewers' spring training facility for rehab work. His exact return timeline isn't clear.

Christian YelichMIL | RF
not starting Monday
Yelich left Sunday's win over the Cardinals in the second inning due to lower-back tightness, and he'll get an additional day off to recover. He's still considered day-to-day, but Jackie Bradley will shift to left field while Lorenzo Cain starts in center field Monday.

Tim LopesMIL | 2B
Lands on 60-day injured list
Lopes' move to the 60-day IL means that he won't be eligible to make his Brewers debut until at least late May. The transaction clears a spot on the 40-man roster for the newly-signed Jackie Bradley.
