Milwaukee Brewers 2022 injuries list: August

The Milwaukee Brewers did finally get Peralta back for the month of August, albeit in a limited fashion as to not reaggravate his shoulder injury while Houser made it back to the starting rotation in late August.

However, the Brewers still dealt with injuries to the starting rotation this month with Ashby hitting the injured list for the second time. From August 20th until nearly a month later, Ashby this time dealt with shoulder inflammation, his second inflammation related injury in 2022.

On August 1st, the Brewers bullpen took another hit when Gustave hit the injured list for the second time with a forearm injury that would cost him the rest of the season. This injury in addition to the trade deadline that did not go well for the Brewers (at least until we know how some young guys pan out), marked the beginning of a tumultuous final two months from the bullpen.

Additionally, on August 11th, Gott hit the injured list a second time and missed over a month with a forearm strain as well.

As far as position players go, August wasn’t awful, but still not kind. Narvaez hit the injured list for the second time, this time with a quad strain that kept him out for two weeks. Also making his second injured list appearance in August was Brosseau with an oblique strain that kept him out for a little over two weeks.

Also at the end of August, Jonathan Davis, filling in in center field for Lorenzo Cain who was let go earlier in the season after struggling to get his bat going, was lost for the rest of the season to an elbow injury, an injury he would finish the season in Nashville rehabbing.

This injury prompted the call up of Garrett Mitchell, who dazzled in his month plus with the team, so August may have offered a small silver lining at least for Mitchell and what he can bring to the Brewers.
