Brewers centerfielder Keon Broxton is done for the season with a broken right wrist, according to Bob Nightengale of USA Today.
Though Broxton has only played 72 games and has a slash line of .238/.349/.427, he has stolen 22 bases on the season while only getting caught stealing three times and is worth 2.0 bWAR.
The Brewers, in the midst of a rebuild, are 66-81 with a .449 win percentage this season. Broxton’s season being over is a blow to the team, as playing time is definitely essential for him to continue adjusting to the Major Leagues. As it stands, it looks like Kirk Nieuwenhuis might be starting in center field, according to Roster Resource.
While it’s not the most ideal situation, it is not as though the Brewers will be losing ground in a race where they’re already eliminated from. Still, it’s never good to see a rookie get hurt.
