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.

Per the report, the Mets “aren’t soliciting offers,” and the cost “would have to be high” if they were to move Syndergaard.

Syndergaard, 26, has struggled this season, but a change of scenery may get him back on track. So far this season, he has posted a 4.68 ERA, but has showed ace potential in the past.
