The Brewers placed Miley on the 10-day disabled list and reinstated All-Star closer Corey Knebel from the 10-day DL after he was out for six weeks with a strained left hamstring.
Miley suffered the injury during Tuesday’s game — his home debut for Milwaukee — against the Indians after he felt discomfort on his 18th pitch of the game and threw one more before exiting the game in the first inning. The 31-year-old right-hander managed to only record one out in the start, which was only his second outing after being sidelined at the beginning of the year with a groin injury. Miley, who signed a minor-league contract in the offseason, is 1-0 with a 1.42 ERA in 6 1⁄3 innings pitched this season.
According to Adam McCalvy of MLB.com, the Brewers may look into “internal” options to replace Miley in the rotation. Brent Suter and minor-leaguers Brandon Woodruff, Corbin Burnes and Freddy Peralta are among the names that could help fill the void for now for the Brewers, who are in a tie for second place in the NL Central with the Pirates and are only a half game behind the Cardinals for first.
