Brandon Woodruff Reaches The Pinnacle

Brewers Organization Report

It took righthander Brandon Woodruff six more weeks than originally planned but he finally made his major league debut for the Brewers.

Woodruff, a 24-year-old who rocketed up the organization's prospect depth chart in recent years, was slated to make his first start for Milwaukee on June 13 in the first game of a doubleheader in St. Louis. But, incredibly, he strained a hamstring stretching in the outfield before going to the bullpen to warm up and was placed on the disabled list.

It was a disheartening development for Woodruff, an 11th-round pick in 2014 out of Mississippi State. He did his time on the DL, including a return to the Brewers' training facility in Phoenix, before beginning a brief minor league rehab stint.
