Corey Knebel (hamstring) to be activated this weekend

The Brewers say Corey Knebel (hamstring) will be activated from the IL this weekend.

Fantasy Impact

Knebel threw on Monday and Thursday. Manager Craig Counsell told reporters that his velocity was up in the latter appearance, which is certainly good to hear. Knebel has been out for the past couple of weeks with a hamstring issue.

Corey Knebel (elbow): Brewers will be cautious with workload

Corey Knebel (elbow) could be ready by Opening Day, but the Brewers will be cautious with his workload.

Fantasy Impact

Knebel threw live batting practice on Saturday and looked "really sharp." He is recovering from Tommy John surgery and the Brewers are being cautious with his workload. "We still consider him coming out of rehab, so we're not going to push it," said Brewers' Pitching Coach Chris Hook. Knebel is expected to split time with Josh Hader in high-leverage situations. The 28-year-old missed the entire 2019 season after undergoing Tommy John surgery at the end of March.

Corey Knebel hoping for May return

Corey Knebel is scheduled for his fourth bullpen today, another touch-and-feel session of about 20 pitches at 80 percent. He's hoping to be back by the first week of May.

Fantasy Impact

After opting for Tommy John surgery and missing the entire 2019 season, Knebel is almost done with his rehab and should immediately assume a big role out of the Brewers' bullpen upon his tentative May return. Josh Hader has a firm lock on the closer role but Knebel and Alex Claudio will be the most valuable to come out of the bullpen in Milwaukee. Knebel made the All-Star game as a closer in 2017 but finished 2018, his last healthy season, with 88 SO, 22 BB, 3.58 ERA, and 1.084 WHIP over 55.1 IP.
