SP,RP - MIL
Matt Bush (groin) returned to Milwaukee to visit with team doctors and should not require an IL stint.
Bush pitched just 1/3 of an inning Tuesday before leaving with a groin injury. The 36-year-old has a 3.54 ERA, .199 BAA, and a 11.64 K/9 ratio in 58 games this season. Great news for the Brewers’ bullpen if Bush does not have to be placed on the IL and only misses a few games.
Matt Bush lasted 1/3 of an inning as the opener for the Brewers Tuesday, allowing two runs on one hit while also walking one in the Brewers' 8-4 win over the Cardinals.
Bush has allowed runs in two of his last five appearances for the Brewers, posting a 5.79 ERA with eight strikeouts in that span. The right-hander carries a 1.03 WHIP and 3.54 ERA with 69 strikeouts and three saves in 58 appearances this season.
Matt Bush pitched one scoreless inning, striking out two Rays to earn his second save of the season Tuesday.
Bush has a 3.38 ERA, .208 OBA, a 11.03 K/9 ratio, nine holds, and two saves in 44 games this season. The 36-year-old appears to be the fill in for Devin Williams when he is unavailable, so he has some fantasy upside.
The Texas Rangers have traded RP Matt Bush to the Milwaukee Brewers in exchange for INF Mark Mathias and RP Antoine Kelly.
In 36 2/3 innings for the Rangers, Bush tallied 45 strikeouts with an ERA of 2.95 and a WHIP of 1.01. Given the flurry of relief pitching moves made the day before the deadline, the Brewers continue to add solid bullpen arms. Bush's primary fantasy value is in SV/HD leagues, but he will help with ratios and is worth an add if available.
Matt Bush worked around a hit and walk to toss a scoreless opening inning Friday against the White Sox.
Glenn Otto was scheduled to start for the Rangers, but he was scratched last second after being placed on the COVID IL. Bush took the mound as the opener in a bullpen game for Texas, working around a A.J. Pollock single and walk to Andrew Vaughn with a double play hit into by Luis Robert.
