Brewers’ Stephen Vogt To Miss Opening Day

Published

on

The Milwaukee Brewers will enter Opening Day without catcher Stephen Voight, who is dealing with a shoulder strain.

Brewers manager Craigh Counsell announced on Wednesday that a second medical opinion confirmed the initial diagnosis of a strained capsule.

The injury will prevent Voight from playing when the Brewers kick off their season on March 29th against the San Diego Padres.

“We’re just going to have to go a little slower. We’ve got to get him pain-free before he can start throwing,” Counsell said (h/t ESPN).

Vogt will not be used as a designated hitter while he is recovering from his injury.

“But there’s no rush with the hitting. We think by the time he starts throwing and hitting, he will have plenty of at-bats,” Counsell said.

It appears that the New York Yankees aren’t done addressing their rotation following their trade with the Toronto Blue Jays for J.A. Happ, who turned in a brilliant debut performance in their win over the Kansas City Royals on Sunday.

According to Fancred’s Jon Heyman, the Yankees are among a few teams that are interested in New York Mets starter Zack Wheeler.

Among the Yankees, the Atlanta Braves, Philadelphia Phillies, and Milwaukee Brewers are also reportedly interested.

Wheeler’s name has been popping up after he has posted a 3.20 ERA over his past 11 starts.

While his 4.11 ERA for the season still looks shaky, he has shown solid improvement during his recent hot streak.

The Baltimore Orioles have a deal in place involving shortstop Manny Machado and are working through the specifics, according to ESPN’s Buster Olney.

While the team has not been identified, both the Los Angeles Dodgers and Philadelphia Phillies have been diligent, while the Milwaukee Brewers, New York Yankees, and Arizona Diamondbacks have also been linked to a trade for Machado.

Philadelphia was the “most likely destination” for Machado because of the Phillies’ willingness to include pitching prospect Adonis Medina, according to MLB.com on Monday.

Machado addressed the media Monday and discussed the trade rumors.

“The only thing I’ve ever known has been the Orioles organization,” he said. “They drafted me, I came up with them, played with them. So I don’t know anything different.”
