Update: Brewers manager Craig Counsell expects Knebel to miss a minimum of 6 weeks. That means it’s likely at least a grade 2 hamstring strain. 6 to 8 weeks is a realistic expectation for return to play.
Milwaukee Brewers closer Corey Knebel will likely land on the DL with a grade 1 hamstring injury. This affects his landing leg. Expect him to RTP in 2-4 weeks, as he will be treated with rest, NSAIDs, and appropriate rehab. Sometimes PRP is used if there is more significant damage. Look for Jacob Barnes to possibly replace him as closer until he returns. Watch below our 3D animation on hamstring injuries:
