Brewers' Brandon Woodruff: Wins third straight decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Woodruff (5-2) allowed two runs on four hits over seven innings Friday, striking out five without walking a batter and earning a win over the Pirates.

The only damage against Woodruff came from two solo home runs by Ben Gamel and Gregory Polanco. He's now gone 12 consecutive starts allowing two or fewer runs, lowering his season ERA to 1.52 alongside a 97:17 K:BB. The 28-year-old has won three of his last four starts, yielding just four runs in 26 innings during that span. Woodruff is projected to start in Colorado next week.

Brewers' Brandon Woodruff: Whiffs nine in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Woodruff allowed two runs on six hits and a walk with nine strikeouts over five innings versus Arizona on Saturday. He did not factor in the decision.

Woodruff was in line for the win when he exited the game, but Brent Suter allowed three runs in the seventh inning to tie the game. It was still a solid effort from Woodruff. The right-hander has been excellent this year with a 1.42 ERA, 0.74 WHIP and 92:17 K:BB across 76 innings. He'll look to be a bit more efficient versus Pittsburgh in next weekend's series.

Brewers' Brandon Woodruff: Dominant against Nationals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Woodruff (4-2) allowed two hits and two walks while striking out 10 in seven scoreless innings to earn the win against the Nationals on Sunday.

Woodruff tossed seven shutout innings in his last start, and he replicated the feat Sunday and earned his second straight win. The right-hander has now allowed two or fewer runs in each of his last 10 starts and has recorded double-digit strikeouts in three of his last five outings. Woodruff tentatively lines up to make his next start at home against the Diamondbacks on Saturday.

Brewers' Brandon Woodruff: Fans eight in dominant win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Woodruff (3-2) allowed three hits over seven shutout innings Monday, striking out eight and earning a win over San Diego.

Woodruff allowed just three singles in his terrific outing and only one Padre reached scoring position against him. Through his 10 starts this season, the 6-foot-4 righty has allowed two or fewer runs in all but one. He lowered his season ERA to an outstanding 1.41 alongside a 73:14 K:BB. Woodruff is projected to start in Washington this weekend.

Brewers' Brandon Woodruff: Suffers tough loss Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Woodruff (2-2) allowed two runs (one earned) on four hits and two walks while striking out four over 7.2 innings as he took the loss against the Royals on Tuesday.

Woodruff kept the Royals off the scoreboard up until the eighth inning after they were able to rally together two runs which were enough to put the Brewers away. Despite taking the loss, the 28-year-old Woodruff tossed his eighth consecutive quality start and has a stunning 1.58 ERA, 0.74 WHIP and 65:14 K:BB over 57 innings. He'll look to continue his dominance and get back in the win column in his next projected start against the Padres early next week.

Brewers' Brandon Woodruff: Dominates Cardinals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Woodruff allowed one earned run on three hits and one walk while striking out 10 across 7.2 innings Wednesday against the Cardinals. He did not factor into the decision.

Woodruff turned in another excellent start, racking up double-digit strikeouts for the second consecutive outing. He has been remarkably consistent early this season, throwing at least six innings in each of his last seven starts and allowing more than one run only once in that span. For the season Woodruff has maintained a 1.64 ERA with a 61:12 K:BB across 49.1 innings. He's projected to next take the mound next Tuesday at Kansas City.

Brewers' Brandon Woodruff: Tough-luck loser
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Woodruff (2-1) allowed one earned run on two hits and two walks while striking out 11 across 6.2 innings to take the loss Thursday against the Phillies.

Woodruff took the loss through no fault of his own, as the lone blemish of his start came on a solo home run by Alec Bohm. Otherwise, Woodruff took care of the Phillies by racking up 23 swinging strikes on 103 total pitches to back up his first double-digit-strikeout effort of the campaign. He's posted a stellar 1.73 ERA and 51:11 K:BB across 41.2 frames to this point, and he currently lines up to take the mound for his next outing Wednesday against St. Louis.

Brewers' Brandon Woodruff: Records quality start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Woodruff allowed two runs on six hits and one walk while striking out six over six innings in Saturday's win over the Dodgers. He didn't factor into the decision.

The righty was sharp Saturday with his only mistakes being a homer by Mookie Betts in the first and a Corey Seager triple in the third to knock in Betts. The 28-year-old threw 65 of his 91 pitches for strikes and now has a 1.80 ERA. Woodruff also has a 40:9 K:BB through 35 frames.

Brewers' Brandon Woodruff: Fires six shutout innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Woodruff (2-0) allowed two hits and two walks over six shutout innings Sunday, striking out eight and earning a win over the Cubs.

Woodruff was outstanding Sunday and was never in much danger during the contest. The Cubs got two runners on base to begin the fourth inning but Woodruff recorded a pair of strikeouts and eliminated the threat when Ian Happ was caught trying to swipe third. He lowered his season ERA to 1.55 with a 34:8 K:BB through 29 frames. Woodruff will take the mound at home against the Dodgers on Friday.

Brewers' Brandon Woodruff: Outduels Musgrove for win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Woodruff (1-0) allowed one run on one hit and three walks while striking out seven over six innings to earn the win against the Padres on Monday.

Woodruff had a rocky opening frame, as he tossed 28 pitches while allowing his only hit and run of the night. However, he was nearly untouchable thereafter and exited after retiring seven straight hitters following a fourth-inning walk to Wil Myers. It was only a matter of time before Woodruff picked up his first win of the season, as the 28-year-old now owns a 1.96 ERA and 26:6 K:BB through 23 innings pitched. He's in line to face the Cubs for the third time this season at Wrigley Field on Sunday; across the first two, he allowed one run on four hits over 13 innings.

Brewers' Brandon Woodruff: Dominates Cubs again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Woodruff allowed one earned run on three hits and one walk while striking out six across six innings Tuesday against the Cubs. He did not factor into the decision.

Woodruff has faced the Cubs in his last two starts -- a stretch in which he allowed only one earned run across 13 innings with 14 strikeouts and one walk. However, he didn't earn a victory on either occasion even though he left Tuesday's game with a lead. After a shaky start on Opening Day, Woodruff has produced as expected but will face a challenge in his next start, which is slated to come Monday at San Diego.

Brewers' Brandon Woodruff: Excellent in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Woodruff allowed one hit and struck out eight over seven innings in Wednesday's extra-inning win over the Cubs. He did not factor in the decision.

Woodruff was fantastic in a pitchers' duel with the Cubs' Kyle Hendricks on Wednesday. Only three runners reached base against Woodruff -- which came via an error, a single and a fielder's choice. The right-hander is still in search of his first win, but he has a strong 2.45 ERA, 0.82 WHIP and 13:2 K:BB across 11 innings this season. He's expected to face the Cubs again Tuesday in his next start.

Brewers' Brandon Woodruff: Gives up three runs Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Woodruff didn't factor into the decision in Thursday's extra-inning win over the Twins. He gave up three runs on six hits and two walks while fanning five across four innings.

Woodruff started on Opening Day for the second straight year but wasn't very effective, lasting just four innings despite tossing 50 of his 78 pitches for strikes. He found a way to limit the damage, however, and that bodes well for the 28-year-old right-hander as he looks to build on a 2020 campaign in which he posted career highs in ERA (3.05), WHIP (0.99) and K/9 (11.12).

Brewers' Brandon Woodruff: Gets Opening Day nod
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Woodruff was named the Brewers' Opening Day starter as expected Thursday, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.

Woodruff will square off against Kenta Maeda and the Twins on April 1. He'll be making his second consecutive Opening Day start, becoming the first Brewer to do so since Yovani Gallardo received the honor in five consecutive seasons from 2010 to 2014.

Brewers' Brandon Woodruff: Goes two scoreless in second start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Woodruff threw two scoreless innings in his second start of the spring Friday. He allowed five hits, struck out one batter and walked none.

Woodruff allowed a few too many runners to reach base Friday, but he did keep the ball in the park after allowing two homers in his first spring start. He figures to start two or three more times before the regular season gets underway.

Brewers' Brandon Woodruff: Uneven spring debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Woodruff made his spring debut Monday and allowed two earned runs over two innings against the Angels. He struck out one batter, walked none and served up two home runs.

Woodruff was slowed by a back injury this spring. He was sharp in his first inning, retiring all three batters he faced -- including punching out Mike Trout. However, he ran into trouble in his second frame, serving up long balls to Anthony Rendon and Justin Upton. The Angels certainly didn't send their B team out there Monday, so the long balls shouldn't be cause for concern at this point. Woodruff will have plenty of time to get ready for Opening Day; barring any setbacks, he will almost certainly take the ball that day against the Twins.

Brewers' Brandon Woodruff: Scheduled to start Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Woodruff (back) is scheduled to start Monday's spring game against the Angels, Sophia Minnaert of Fox Sports Wisconsin reports.

The 28-year-old pitched against live hitters Thursday with no issues and is poised to make his spring debut Monday. Woodruff was originally scheduled to start last Tuesday, so the back stiffness only ended up pushing back his first outing of the spring by less than a week. Assuming he doesn't suffer any setbacks, the right-hander shouldn't have any issues being ready for Opening Day.

Brewers' Brandon Woodruff: Successful throwing session
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Woodruff (back) successfully faced hitters Thursday, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.

Woodruff was scratched from his scheduled start Tuesday due to back stiffness, but his live batting practice session Thursday went as planned. Manager Craig Counsell said that Woodruff's next step will be pitching in a Cactus League game, although it's not yet clear when that will occur. As long as he doesn't experience any setbacks, he should have plenty of time to prepare for Opening Day.

Brewers' Brandon Woodruff: Facing hitters
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Woodruff (back) will face hitters Thursday, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Woodruff was scratched from his Tuesday start with back stiffness, though the Brewers said at the time that the issue wasn't a big deal. He threw a bullpen session that same day and will now throw live batting practice Thursday, leaving him with plenty of time to get up to speed by Opening Day, assuming he avoids any setbacks.

Brewers' Brandon Woodruff: Successful bullpen session
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Woodruff's (back) bullpen session went well Tuesday, and he should pitch in a game Thursday or Friday, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.

It remains to be seen whether Woodruff will start a Cactus League game later this week or pitch in a camp game. Any pitcher injury early in camp is worth monitoring closely, but there doesn't presently seem to be any concern about Woodruff's availability for the start of the regular season.
