Milwaukee Brewers 2022 injuries list: July

Thankfully July didn’t have as long of a list of injuries as May or June for the Milwaukee Brewers, however the injuries sustained in July really didn’t help the cause of the season.

As previously mentioned, Peralta missed the entire month of July. While Ashby made his return on July 2nd from the first of his two injured list stints, on July 1st, Adrian Houser hit the injured list for the first time. He missed almost two months with an elbow injury, hitting the injured list on July 1st and not getting back until August 24th.

July was the only month of the year that the Milwaukee didn’t have any new injuries to the bullpen.

That didn’t stop the injury bug from hitting the position players, however. In July, the Brewers lost a valuable utility man in Jace Peterson to an elbow sprain that kept him out for over a month. Also, Tyrone Taylor suffered a concussion that kept him out from July 2nd until after the All-Star break.

All in all, July might have been the Brewers least injury plagued month, which really doesn’t feel like a win considering a good number of key players were already out before the month began.
