SP,RP - MIL - IL60
The Brewers transferred Aaron Ashby to the 60-day IL.
The move is not a surprise considering Ashby is expected to miss most of the season after undergoing shoulder surgery. Fantasy managers should feel comfortable moving on from Ashby considering the amount of time he will miss in 2023.
Milwaukee Brewers pitcher Aaron Ashby will undergo arthroscopic surgery on his throwing shoulder.
Ashby was placed on the 15-day injured list to begin the season after dealing with a left labrum issue in camp and will now be sidelined until late in the season at best, according to skipper Craig Counsell. It's a significant blow for the Brewers as Ashby posted a 4.44 ERA across 107 1/3 innings last season in 27 outings between 19 starts and eight relief appearances. He also worked to a strong 26.5% K% but is at risk of missing the 2023 season altogether.
The Milwaukee Brewers have placed pitcher Aaron Ashby on the 15-day injured list with a left labrum injury.
The move to the IL was expected while it's retroactive to March 27. Ashby broke out at age 24 last season, tossing 107 1/3 innings of 4.44 ERA/4.06 FIP ball along with a strong 26.5% K-rate between the rotation and bullpen. Ashby is likely to work as a reliever upon his return from the IL.
Aaron Ashby threw from around 75 feet on flat ground, for about 10 minutes Wednesday.
Ashby plans to throw again in a few days as long as his shoulder continues to respond. The 24-year-old is expected to open the season on the injured list after suffering a slight labrum tear and a shoulder impingement. Ashby will need to continue to show progress in his throwing program before he can begin thinking about joining the Brewers during the regular season.
Aaron Ashby told reporters Tuesday that he hopes to be pitching for the Brewers by the middle of May.
Ashby has been dealing with left shoulder inflammation. He will open the regular season on the IL and is expected to miss at least the first month and a half or so.
