The Brewers ’postseason run could happen without one of his top reliever.
Milwaukee won the NL Central Division title on Sunday against the Mets with a 4-4 goal, which was a cause for celebration.
Devin Williams, the NL Rookie of the Year, probably celebrated a bit more and paid the price as a result: he probably won’t be part of his team’s post-season run.
Devin Williams is being kept in the 10-day IL with a broken arm. He told us that after the Sunday celebration he drank too much, got upset with something and punched a wall with his pitching hand. He will need surgery.
“If I could take it back, I would.”

Former All-Star close Brad Boxberger, as well as Williams, are an integral part of Milwaukee’s continued success this year.

However, if postseason baseball is known for one thing, be it late-playing heroism এটি be it pitching or batting তাই Williams ’absence will be strongly felt.
