Brewers' Corey Knebel: To undergo Tommy John surgery
Knebel will undergo Tommy John surgery Wednesday, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Knebel had reportedly been dealing with elbow issues for years, but the problem finally got serious enough to require reconstructive surgery. He'll miss the entirety of 2019 and potentially a good portion of 2020 recovering from the procedure. In his absence, Josh Hader got the save on Opening Day. Hader should receive the majority of the opportunities going forward, though manager Craig Counsell could get creative if he wants to keep using Hader in high-leverage situations earlier than the ninth inning.
