  • Brewers' Brandon Woodruff: Victorious in quality start

    Woodruff (5-2) earned the win during Saturday's 5-1 victory over Washington, allowing one run on five hits with six strikeouts in six innings.

    Woodruff tossed a season-high 100 pitches, with 70 finding the zone, and he stayed out of trouble around a Lane Thomas solo home run in the third inning. The quality start was only the 29-year-old's second in eight turns, though his 11.1 K/9 is nearly a full strikeout better than his career 10.3 mark.

  • Brewers' Brandon Woodruff: Picks up win over Marlins

    Woodruff (4-2) allowed three runs (one earned) on five hits and two walks over five innings Sunday, striking out six and earning a win over Miami.

    Woodruff coughed up a two-run single to Payton Henry in the second inning after the frame began with an error. He was then taken deep for a solo shot in the third by Jorge Soler. The 6-foot-4 righty saw his season ERA drop to 5.35 through 33.2 innings, but he's given up five home runs over his last three outings. Woodruff will look to string together victories in his projected home start against Washington next weekend.

  • Brewers' Brandon Woodruff: Ineffective versus Reds

    Woodruff (3-2) was charged with the loss Monday after surrendering six runs (five earned) over 4.1 innings against the Reds. He allowed eight hits and walked two while striking out six.

    After giving up just one run over four innings, Woodruff imploded in the bottom of the fifth inning, surrendering five runs in the inning. The five-run frame was capped off with a Brandon Drury three-run homer, giving the Reds a 5-3 lead. One more run would score after Woodruff had been pulled from the game. After posting two straight scoreless outings, the 29-year-old has given up 12 earned runs over 14 innings in his last three starts. The difficult stretch has seen his ERA jump from 4.30 to 5.97. He'll look to get back on the right track in his next start, which is tentatively set to come Sunday versus the Marlins.

  • Brewers' Brandon Woodruff: Punches out 12 in win

    Woodruff (3-1) picked up the win over the Reds on Tuesday, allowing three runs on four hits over 5.2 innings. He struck out 12 and did not issue a walk.

    Outside of a two-batter stretch when he allowed back-to-back homers to Tommy Pham and Mike Moustakas, Woodruff was utterly dominant. He had 19 called strikes and 18 swinging strikes on 95 pitches. Afterward, Woodruff told Adam McCalvy of that he's been "working extremely hard to get back to myself" after a disappointing start to the season; even after Tuesday's gem, Woodruff still has a 5.18 ERA. This performance was a big step in the right direction.

  • Brewers' Brandon Woodruff: Four earned against Pirates

    Woodruff did not factor into the decision Tuesday against the Pirates, allowing four runs on seven hits and two walks while striking out six over four innings.

    One of the runs against Woodruff touched home after he exited the game, with Brent Suter allowing an inherited runner to score. Woodruff now sports a 5.30 ERA this season. That number is misleading -- Woodruff had just turned in consecutive scoreless outings in his last two starts prior to Tuesday -- but his strikeouts are down. It's something to keep an eye on as the season progresses.

  • Brewers' Brandon Woodruff: Bags another win

    Woodruff tossed six scoreless innings and picked up the win in Wednesday's victory over the Pirates. He allowed just one hit and two walks to go along with nine strikeouts.

    Woodruff has turned things around in a big way after allowing seven earned runs in his season debut, going 2-0 over his last two starts while giving up just four hits and posting an 11:3 K:BB over 11.0 innings. Woodruff toed the rubber only once again Pittsburgh last season, but he is set to face them for a second straight start next week.

  • Brewers' Brandon Woodruff: Five shutout innings

    Woodruff (1-1) allowed three hits and one walk with two strikeouts across five scoreless innings to earn the win Thursday against the Cardinals.

    After a poor start to open the season, Woodruff rebounded with a strong performance to earn his first win. He did not allow an extra-base hit and also retired the final six batters he faced. While Woodruff only managed two strikeouts, he induced 12 swinging strikes on 89 total pitches -- an indication that he was still plenty deceptive. Woodruff currently lines up to make his next start Wednesday against the Pirates.

  • Brewers' Brandon Woodruff: Crushed by Cubs

    Woodruff (0-1) gave up six runs on seven hits, three walks and two hit batsmen while striking out two in 3.2 innings in a 9-0 loss Saturday against the Cubs.

    Woodruff needed 40 pitches to get through the three-run first and continued to struggle throughout his outing. It was death by a thousand cuts for the former All-Star, as the Cubs only had one extra-base hit and yet 11 of the 22 batters reached safely. Following a spring in which he allowed six home runs in 11.2 innings, Saturday's starts certainly raised some eyebrows. That said, the 29-year-old has been one of the best starters in baseball the last three seasons with a combined 3.00 ERA over 65 starts during that span. His next start should be late next week against St. Louis.

  • Brewers' Brandon Woodruff: Start bumped back by weather

    Woodruff won't make his scheduled start Friday against the Cubs as the game has been postponed due to poor weather, Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune reports.

    The game will be made up as part of a doubleheader in late May. The Brewers will push their starters back a day, so Woodruff will take his turn Saturday at Wrigley Field, lining him up for a start in Baltimore the following Thursday.

  • Brewers' Brandon Woodruff: Gets $6.8M to avoid arbitration

    Woodruff and the Brewers agreed Tuesday on a one-year, $6.8 million contract to avoid arbitration, Mark Feinsand of reports.

    Woodruff will get a $3.52 million raise after he showed no signs of wearing down last season over the course of 179.1 innings, up nearly 60 frames from his previous career-high total in 2019. Over his 30 starts in 2021, Woodruff proved to be one of the baseball's top No. 2 pitchers, finishing with a 2.56 ERA, 0.96 WHIP and 211:43 K:BB. He's scheduled to make his first Cactus League start Thursday against the Diamondbacks, tentatively lining him up to start the Brewers' second game of the regular season April 8 in Chicago, while reigning NL Cy Young Award winner Corbin Burnes likely gets the Opening Day nod versus the Cubs.

  • Brewers' Brandon Woodruff: Outdueled in Game 2

    Woodruff (0-1) took the loss Saturday in Game 2 of the NLDS versus Atlanta. He pitched six innings, giving up three runs on five hits and a walk.

    The 28-year-old was able to hold the Atlanta batters to just three runs, with the final blow being a solo home run off the bat of Austin Riley in the sixth inning. Woodruff was able to throw 62 of his 91 pitches for strikes and register a quality start, but Atlanta starter Max Fried outdueled him with six scoreless innings. The right-handed Woodruff is currently not expected to start again this best-of-five series, though that could change depending on how everything plays out.

  • Brewers' Brandon Woodruff: Limited to short outing

    Woodruff allowed two earned runs on seven hits and no walks while striking out three across four innings Tuesday against St. Louis. He did not factor into the decision.

    Woodruff was limited to only 63 pitches, a move made to preserve his innings with the Brewers having already clinched the division. Prior to his exit, Woodruff surrendered two runs in the fourth inning -- one of which came on a solo home run by Dylan Carlson. This will likely serve as Woodruff's last outing of the regular season, and if that is the case he will end the campaign with an excellent 2.56 ERA with a 211:43 K:BB across 179.1 frames.
