The Milwaukee Brewers, currently atop the National League Central standings, received further concerning updates about left-handed pitcher Wade Miley’s elbow problem. As reported by Curt Hogg of the Milwaukee Journal-Constitution, the team continues to be stuck in a worrisome holding pattern regarding Miley’s condition.

Wade Miley’s MRI results yielded inconclusive findings, according to Pat Murphy. He traveled to Cincinnati for an in-person arthrogram today to obtain further insights into his elbow condition and assess any potential ligament damage.

The Brewers are hopeful that Miley’s elbow issue doesn’t involve ligament damage, as he plays a crucial role in their rotation. With the offseason departures of Corbin Burnes and Adrian Houser, along with Brandon Woodruff’s injury, Miley’s contributions are vital for Murphy’s team.

At 37 years old, Miley returned to the Brewers this offseason and has posted a 0-1 record with a 6.43 ERA in two starts. He’s in his 14th MLB season, having previously played for the Arizona Diamondbacks, Boston Red Sox, Seattle Mariners, Baltimore Orioles, Houston Astros, Cincinnati Reds, and Chicago Cubs, in addition to the Brewers. Miley holds a career record of 108-99 with a 4.07 ERA and earned All-Star honors in 2011 when he won a career-best 16 games.

As of Thursday, the Brewers boast a surprisingly strong 15-8 record, edging out the Chicago Cubs by just half a game atop the National League Central standings. This unexpected success is particularly notable given the departure of key pitchers mentioned earlier.

Prior to their upcoming series against the New York Yankees starting Friday night, the Brewers are wrapping up a series against the Pittsburgh Pirates on Thursday afternoon.
