Brewers starting pitcher Corbin Burnes won the 2021 National League Cy Young award as the league’s top pitcher during the 2021 season.
Burnes had a dominant season on the mound for the Milwaukee Brewers. He led the National League with a 2.43 earned run average while also finishing with a 0.94 WHIP and 234/34 K/BB ratio in 167 innings.
Corbin Burnes will not be starting Tuesday's Game 4 elimination game for Milwaukee.
It is unclear if it will be a bullpen game for the Brewers or if they'll go with another starter in Eric Lauer.
The Brewers announced RHP Corbin Burnes will be the team's NLDS Game 1 starter against the Braves.
As expected. Burnes was phenomenal in 2021, registering a 2.43 ERA to go along with a 0.94 WHIP and a 234:34 K:BB in 167 innings. Brandon Woodruff will start Game 2 for Milwaukee.
Corbin Burnes (11-5) took the loss Saturday against the Dodgers, allowing three runs on two hits in two innings. He walked one and struck out four.
The Brewers removed Burnes after just 42 pitches, presumably to ensure that he's well rested for the playoffs. He finishes an incredible 2021 campaign with a 2.43 ERA and 0.94 WHIP across 167 innings with 234 strikeouts to 34 walks.
Corbin Burnes (11-4) earned the win Saturday against the Mets, allowing one run on five hits in seven innings. He walked one and struck out nine.
Burnes continues to be a revelation in 2021, lowering his season ERA to 2.29 and his WHIP to 0.93. The Brewers have shown no sign of limiting Burnes's innings, but he may be held back in the final week of the season. It's worth monitoring if you've been relying on his production in fantasy.
