Brandon Woodruff starting the NL Wild Card game for Brewers

The Brewers have named Brandon Woodruff as their starter for Tuesday's National League Wild Card game versus the Nationals.

Fantasy Impact

Woodruff has only made two appearances since returning from a two-month oblique injury but has been a reliable starter all season. The 26-year-old posted a 3.62 ERA in 121 2/3 innings this year. It's likely he only lasts 2-3 innings tomorrow since his arm strength isn't built up right now.

Brandon Woodruff throws two scoreless innings Sunday

Brandon Woodruff struck out three in two perfect innings to start Sunday's game against the Pirates.

Fantasy Impact

Woodruff acted as the quasi-opener for this contest, as he's now done twice since being activated from the injured list. The Brewers may choose to continue deploying him in this fashion, or they may be building him out to a more typical start's workload.

Brandon Woodruff activated from injured list, tosses two innings Tuesday

Brandon Woodruff was activated ahead of Tuesday's game against the Padres. He started the contest and tossed two scoreless innings while walking one and striking out four.

Fantasy Impact

Sidelined since July 21 with an oblique injury, Woodruff looked to be in great shape on Tuesday, striking out four batters in two innings. He'll look to continue his stellar season in which he's posted a 3.69 ERA 140 strikeouts in 119.2 innings. It's unclear when he'll take the mound next, as he seems to be stretching out to a fuller workload.

Brandon Woodruff completes bullpen session Monday

Brandon Woodruff (oblique) threw a 20-pitch bullpen session Monday.

Fantasy Impact

Woodruff increased his intensity Monday after taking it easy in his previous session on Friday, his first since landing on the injured list. Woodruff reported no issues afterwards. He's hopeful to rejoin the Brewers' rotation sometime in late September.

Brandon Woodruff heading to injured list

Brandon Woodruff is expected to be placed on the 10-day injured list with a left oblique injury.

Fantasy Impact

Woodruff left Sunday's game with what was initially described as abdominal discomfort. We now have a clearer picture of the injury, and it's a left oblique issue. He's set to have an MRI Monday, which would reveal more about his intended timetable for recovery. This is a real shame for fantasy owners, as Woodruff has put together an outstanding season in his first exposure to the starting rotation.
