One day after surrendering four runs and earning no outs, Brewers pitcher Corbin Burnes is headed to the 10-Day Injured List with right shoulder irritation. Burch Smith has been called up to take his place on the active roster.
The Brewers announced the moves on Monday afternoon.
Burnes, 24, has a 9.00 ERA in 46 innings pitched this year. Just about every significant statistic has greatly trended in the wrong direction compared to a season ago for Burnes.
Smith, 29, has appeared in four games for the Brewers this season in an earlier stint, and in 7 2/3 innings this season has allowed six runs. In 67 2/3 innings pitched at Triple-A San Antonio, Buch has an ERA of 2.53.
