SP - MIL - IL15
Adrian Houser is joining triple-a Nashville to begin a rehab assignment.
Adrian Houser is set to throw two innings in triple-a on Saturday as he begins a rehab assignment. He is working his way back from an elbow injury, and last pitched on June 30. Houser has a 4.72 ERA and a 4-8 record on the season.
Adrian Houser will be heading back to Milwaukee for an exam on his elbow and will be placed on the IL.
Houser left with a trainer on Thursday during his start against the Pirates after just 2 1/3 innings pitched with the injury. There's no word on the exact nature of his elbow ailment, but Houser said he and the team were encouraged by initial tests. Elbow injuries are obviously worrisome, so expect Houser to miss more than the 15-day minimum. The Brewers should update his status after his MRI.
Andrian Houser left Thursday's start against the Pirates in the third inning. The training staff looked at his throwing arm before ultimately deciding to end his outing.
The 29-year-old was struggling in his 15th start of the season before leaving. He had given up three runs on two homers, walked one, and struck out none in 2 1/3 innings. We will know more after he is evaluated postgame, but fantasy managers should check the waiver wire for potential replacements, given that even minor pitching-arm injuries usually require missing a start or two.
