SP - MIL - MiLB
Brewers SP Ethan Small lasted just 2 2/3 innings on the mound in his first MLB start Monday, allowing two runs on four hits while also walking four and striking out four in the Brewers' 7-6 win over the Cubs.
Small had a rough first start for the Brewers, failing to keep opposing hitters off-balance Monday. The left-hander may get another opportunity to start with SP Brandon Woodruff headed for a stint on the injured list.
The Brewers officially promoted Ethan Small from Triple-A on Monday and he will start the first game of Monday's doubleheader against the Cubs.
Small had just a 1.88 ERA in eight starts in Triple-A, though he did have a 13% walk rate. With the Brewers playing eight games this week, Small may be in line for two starts after Freddy Peralta's injury, but it's unclear how long he'll remain in the majors. He's worth a speculative add in all formats.
Ethan Small is being called up from Triple-A Nashville to join Milwaukee on Sunday.
Small is being recalled to the Brewers from Triple-A Nashville, most likely due to the injury to starter Freddy Peralta. Small, 25, has been great this season in the minors going 3-1 with a 1.88 ERA and 49 strikeouts across 38 innings. He could be worth a speculative add in deeper leagues to see how his performance plays out.
