Godley was placed on the 10-day injured list Wednesday with a bruised right index finger, Will Sammon of The Athletic reports. He said his finger is not broken, just bruised, after injuring it on a bunt attempt Wednesday. Eric Lauer was recalled to start Thursday's game in a corresponding move.
Godley exited Wednesday's game against the Marlins due to a bruised right index finger, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports. Godley was hit on the index finger on his throwing hand while he was bunting in the third inning and initially remained in the game, but he was later removed in the fourth inning. Godley was starting in place of Brett Anderson (hamstring) on Wednesday, and he struggled with command by issuing five walks in three frames. The severity of Godley's injury is unknown, and it's not yet clear whether he'll make another start, even if he's healthy in time for his next turn through the rotation.
Godley left Wednesday's game against the Marlins in the fourth inning with an apparent injury, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports. Godley appeared to be hit on the index finger while bunting in the third inning, but he was able to initially remain in the game. However, he issued a walk to begin the fourth inning and hit Chad Wallach with a pitch prior to leaving the game with a trainer. It's not yet clear whether Godley's departure is related to his finger issue, and whether he's forced to miss additional time remains to be seen. Godley allowed two runs (one earned) on one hit and five walks while striking out five in three innings prior to leaving the game.
Godley's contract was selected by the Brewers on Wednesday. Godley is slated to start Wednesday's series finale against the Marlins since Brett Anderson (hamstring) is on the injured list. The right-hander made eight appearances (seven starts) for Boston in 2020 and posted an 8.16 ERA and 1.95 WHIP in 28.2 innings.
Manager Craig Counsell announced that Godley will start Wednesday's series finale against the Marlins, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports. The 31-year-old inked a minor-league deal with the Brewers toward the end of spring training, and he'll make his debut with the club Wednesday while Brett Anderson (hamstring) is on the injured list. Godley struggled with an 8.16 ERA over 28.2 innings for the Red Sox in 2020, but he could stick in the Brewers' rotation with a strong performance versus the Marlins, at least until Anderson recovers.
