Chase AndersonThe Brewers will put right-hander Chase Anderson on the 10-day disabled list, tweets MLB.com’s Adam McCalvy. Milwaukee announced tonight that Anderson exited his start with a strained left oblique muscle that he suffered on a swing at the plate. McCalvy adds that Anderson is facing a “long absence” and notes that the righty said he felt as if he’d been stabbed in the side upon taking the swing that caused the injury.

Oblique strains could drag on for a while, but typically a player is able to rebound in about 4-6 weeks, depending on the severity. An absence of even a month for Anderson is a terrible loss for the Brewers. The 29-year-old is in the midst of a breakout season, as he’s worked to an outstanding 2.89 ERA with 8.5 K/9, 2.7 BB/9 and a 38.1 percent ground-ball rate in 90 1/3 innings this year.

Without Anderson, the Brewers have a few options to replace him including top prospect Josh Hader who was called up two weeks ago and has been working exclusively out of the bullpen. Hader will need some time to be stretched out if they go that route. Other options include Paolo Espino and Taylor Jungmann.
