Brewers' Brandon Woodruff: Homer spoils decent outing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Woodruff (2-5) took the loss Monday against the Reds, allowing two runs on four hits and two walks across 5.2 innings. He fanned nine.

Woodruff was solid once again, but took a tough-luck loss in his second consecutive outing. He was able to get the first two outs of the sixth after logging five scoreless frames, but a two-run shot by Eugenio Suarez bounced him from the game and left him on the hook for the loss. Despite falling to 2-5, Woodruff has allowed just five runs while fanning 26 across his last 19.2 innings.

Brewers' Brandon Woodruff: Complete-game effort wasted
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Woodruff (2-4) took the loss while tossing a complete game (seven innings) in Game 1 of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Cardinals, allowing four runs (three earned) on seven hits. He fanned five and did not issue a walk.

It was a strong showing for Woodruff, but unfortunately for the right-hander, Adam Wainwright was even better for St. Louis. Woodruff was spotted an early 2-0 lead in the first inning, but that would be the only run support the Brewers would give him. The Cardinals belted a pair of solo homers and were able to grind out two more runs (one unearned) to hand the 27-year-old his fourth loss of the season. Despite the defeat, Woodruff appears to be trending in a positive direction, allowing just three earned runs across 14 innings during consecutive quality starts. His next start is scheduled to come Tuesday against the Reds.

Brewers' Brandon Woodruff: Dominates in shutout
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Woodruff (2-3) threw seven shutout innings on Friday, allowing one hit while striking out 12 during the Brewers' 1-0 victory over the Cubs.

After struggling against the Cubs in their previous matchup, Woodruff bounced back in a pitchers' duel, throwing 71 of his 100 pitches for strikes in the victory. He'll carry a 3.40 ERA into his start against the Cardinals next week.

Brewers' Brandon Woodruff: Can't work deep
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Woodruff allowed three earned runs on four hits and three walks while striking out seven across 4.1 innings Saturday against Cleveland. He did not factor into the decision.

Woodruff got through four scoreless innings with relative ease. However, things quickly took a turn in the fifth frame, as he allowed a walk, double and home run consecutively before being pulled from the contest. Positively, Woodruff continued to rack up strikeouts, and he now has 22 punchouts across his last 15.1 frames. He'll look to work deeper into his next start, currently projected to come Friday against the Cubs.

Brewers' Brandon Woodruff: Reinstated from paternity list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Woodruff was reinstated from the paternity list Thursday.

Woodruff rejoins the Brewers' roster after being placed on the paternity list Monday. The right-hander did not miss a start and is slated to take the ball Saturday against Cleveland. He will look to improve upon his last outing, in which he allowed four runs while taking the loss to the Pirates.

Brewers' Brandon Woodruff: Returning Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Woodruff (personal) is slated to return from the paternity list to start Saturday's game against the Indians, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Assuming Woodruff experiences no complications with the COVID-19 intake testing protocol upon joining the Brewers in Cleveland, he'll be able to stay on turn in the rotation. He left the team to witness the birth of his child immediately after completing his start against the Pirates this past weekend.

Brewers' Brandon Woodruff: Lands on paternity list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Woodruff was placed on the paternity list Monday.

He must miss the next team game, but no more than three games, so Woodruff will be activated prior to his next scheduled start this weekend against Cleveland.

Brewers' Brandon Woodruff: Bit by long ball, takes loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Woodruff (2-3) took the loss Sunday against the Pirates, allowing four runs on four hits and three walks across five innings. He struck out seven.

Woodruff allowed a solo homer to Gregory Polanco in the first and was later taken deep by Josh Bell for a two-run shot in the fourth. Although he was able to punch out seven, the right-hander will certainly be unhappy about yielding three free passes. The 27-year-old will take a 3.67 ERA into his start against the Indians next Sunday.

Brewers' Brandon Woodruff: Evens record with win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Woodruff (2-2) allowed two runs on four hits and one walk while striking out eight over six innings in a win over the Reds on Tuesday.

After looking unhittable the first time through the order, Woodruff ran into trouble in the fourth and fifth innings. He loaded the bases with nobody out in the fifth but escaped that inning completely unscathed, limiting the total damage to just two earned runs. Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel noted earlier this week that Woodruff's wife is pregnant and will be induced Sept. 1; Woodruff plans to pitch Sunday against the Pirates before returning home to Mississippi on Monday. He said he will hopefully return in time for his next start after the birth of his child.

Brewers' Brandon Woodruff: Takes loss Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Woodruff (1-2) was tagged with the loss in Thursday's loss to Minnesota, throwing five innings and allowing two runs on nine hits and one walk while striking out three.

Woodruff retired the first six batters he faced but ran into trouble in the third inning when a triple and a single accounted for the first run against him. He gave up six more hits between the fourth and fifth frames but managed to escape without yielding any additional run thanks to an outfield assist and a double play. The right-hander came back out for the sixth but was pulled after allowing the first two runners to reach base, one of which eventually came around to score. Collectively, Woodruff allowed a season high in hits (nine) while tallying a season-low three strikeouts and failing to get through six innings for the third straight start. He'll look to rebound in a home appearance against Cincinnati on Tuesday.

Brewers' Brandon Woodruff: Escapes with no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Woodruff didn't factor into the decision in Friday's 4-3 win over the Cubs, allowing three runs on four hits and two walks over 4.1 innings. He struck out four.

The right-hander tossed four scoreless innings but got tagged in the fifth, and Woodruff exited the game in line for a loss before Christian Yelich bailed him out with a three-run blast in the sixth. Woodruff threw 86 pitches (59 strikes), and his inefficiency continues to limit his ability to record wins despite a strong 3.16 ERA, 1.05 WHIP and 30:7 K:BB through 25.2 innings over five starts. He'll next take the mound Wednesday in Minnesota.

Brewers' Brandon Woodruff: Gets through only four Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Woodruff allowed two runs on three hits and two walks while striking out five over four innings in a no-decision against the Reds on Sunday.

The Reds made Woodruff work; he needed 30 pitches to get through the first inning and 91 pitches to get through four. He has a sparkling 26:5 K:BB in 20.1 innings this season, so his believers are looking pretty smart early on even though Woodruff still sits with just one win through four starts. Up next is a road matchup against the Cubs, who stuck Woodruff with the loss Opening Day.

Brewers' Brandon Woodruff: No-decision in quality start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Woodruff didn't factor into the decision in Tuesday's 3-2 loss to the White Sox, allowing two runs on eight hits and a walk over six innings. He struck out six.

The right-hander was in control through five innings, but Eloy Jimenez rocked him for a game-tying homer in the sixth. Woodruff continues to sparkle to begin 2020, and his 1-1 record doesn't reflect his 2.08 ERA or 21:3 K:BB through 17.1 innings. He'll look to get back in the win column Sunday in a home start against the Reds.

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

Woodruff (1-1) struck out 10 batters over 6.1 scoreless innings in Wednesday's victory over the Pirates. He allowed just one hit and walked only one batter in the contest.

Woodruff was absolutely dominant Wednesday, ceding only an infield single in the first inning and allowing just one batted ball to even reach the outfield. He served up a two-run homer to the Cubs' Ian Happ on Opening Day but has otherwise kept the opponent off the scoreboard over his first two starts of the season.

Brewers' Brandon Woodruff: Takes loss in opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Woodruff (0-1) allowed two runs on four hits and one walk while striking out five over five innings in a loss to the Cubs on Opening Day.

This was by no means a bad performance, though Woodruff did only induce seven swinging strikes on 85 pitches. His offense provided him no support. Hopefully the Milwaukee bats will wake up by the time Woodruff's next turn comes around Wednesday in Pittsburgh, as that would seem like a prime spot for a win.

Brewers' Brandon Woodruff: Named Opening Day starter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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

Woodruff will get the nod July 24 against the Cubs at Wrigley Field. It's no surprise to see him earn the honor, as he's clearly the Brewers' top starter, having cruised to a 3.62 ERA and 29.0 percent strikeout rate last season.

Brewers' Brandon Woodruff: Stuff looks sharp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Woodruff's stuff was "very, very sharp command-wise, plus velocity was really, really good" in Saturday's live batting practice session, according to pitching coach Chris Hook, Will Sammon of The Athletic reports.

One of four Brewers starters assured a rotation spot, Woodruff is the staff ace and didn't look rusty in his first action against live hitters. He is a strong candidate to be the team's Opening Day starter.

Brewers' Brandon Woodruff: Goes four strong
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Woodruff allowed one earned run over four innings in Tuesday's spring game against the Royals. He gave up two hits and posted a 5:2 K:BB in the outing.

Woodruff has steadily built up his stamina this spring and has had good results, posting a 1.80 ERA, 1.20 WHIP, and 8:3 K:BB over 10 innings. That strikeout rate is a bit lower than what he is capable of, but he has been working on some pitches this spring, and he did have his best day in that department Tuesday. The Brewers have not yet named an Opening Day starter, but Woodruff is the favorite to get the nod.

Brewers' Brandon Woodruff: Throws two innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Woodruff started Friday's spring game against the Dodgers and allowed one earned run over two innings. He gave up four hits and struck out two batters in his outing.

Woodruff was not particularly sharp Friday, but he was still effective against a Dodgers lineup consisting mostly of MLB regulars. Woodruff will build up his pitch count over the rest of the spring and is the favorite to start Opening Day for the Brewers.

Brewers' Brandon Woodruff: Shines in NL Wild Card Game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Woodruff allowed one run on two hits while striking out three over four innings in a no-decision against the Nationals in Tuesday's NL Wild Card Game. He threw 52 pitches and did not issue a walk.

Trea Turner caught up to some high heat in the third inning, turning around a 97.6-mph fastball for a solo homer, but Woodruff was close to perfect otherwise. His stuff looked good and he had a smart gameplan in attacking hitters. Unfortunately for Woodruff and the Brewers, Juan Soto came up clutch in the eighth against Josh Hader and sent Milwaukee home for the rest of 2019. An oblique injury wiped out most of Woodruff's second half, but he has shown a lot of promise when healthy and will likely be a popular mid-round target in fantasy leagues next year.
