More reinforcements are on the horizon as Brandon Woodruff threw to hitters for the first time and passed the test. Evidently his stuff looked pretty good according to David Stearns. The timetable for his return to the mound in live game action should be sometime next week.
David Stearns on Brandon Woodruff, who threw to hitters yesterday: “Very pleased with how he felt after the outing, how his stuff looked. So I think the expectation now is sometime within the next week, we should be able to see Brandon Woodruff in a Major League game."— Adam McCalvy (@AdamMcCalvy) September 12, 2019
Do not expect Woodruff to log significant innings in the beginning.
