Corbin Burnes hits the IL, Burch Smith returns

July 15, 2019 - 6:41 pm

The Brewers made a move on struggling righty Corbin Burnes - but not the one expected. They placed him on the 10 day Injured List with right shoulder irritation, which Corbin said was in his AC joint.

In a corresponding move, the team called up pitcher Burch Smith to take his spot in the bullpen

Manager Craig Counsell says that the move is cautionary, and it's not a worrysome injury

Corbin Burnes has allowed 46 runs through 46 innings on the season, for a gawdy 9.00 ERA
