MLB: Out 27 for the Ax Man! Brewers lose iconic former closer for remainder of year

MLB Out 27 for the Ax Man Brewers lose iconic

The reliever of the Milwaukee Brewers, John Axford, he will miss the rest of the season after suffering a significant structural damage to your elbow launch, said the manager Craig Counsell. The right-wing veteran is weighing his treatment options, Counsell said.

It’s a disappointing blow for a pitcher who had just returned to the majors just last Monday after a three-year absence. The 38-year-old recorded one out against the Pirates, allowing a pair of runs with two hits and a walk in what will be his only appearance of the year:

Before that, the lanky Canadian had pitched very well with the Triple-A affiliate of the Toronto Blue Jays in Buffalo, where he pitched 10 2/3 single-run innings, with fourteen strikeouts and three walks.

It remains to be seen if ‘The Ax Man’ (he’s known as Ax Man) John Axford will make another comeback push. At the very least, he can take pride in the remarkable successful effort he made in recent months to return to the majors with Milwaukee, even if that season sadly ended much quicker than expected.

Presumably, the Brewers will place Axford, 1.96 meters tall and 106 kilos, on the 60-day disabled list when the need arises for a new spot on the 40-man roster. Will it be the end of your GL career?

I am fond of the King of Sports, especially the Boston Red Sox in MLB and in general all of Mexican baseball. This profession has given me the opportunity to cover major events such as the Caribbean Series, LMB All Star, LMP (uninterrupted since 2009), signings of important players. I had the chance to attend the 2013 World Classic in Arizona, USA, albeit as a fan. Apart from this beautiful sport, I love basketball, where I have also narrated games and even an NBA friendly 10 years ago, but I carry baseball in my veins. Bachelor of Communication Sciences from the Autonomous University of Sinaloa (UAS) , from which I graduated in 2011. I was born in Mazatlán, Sinaloa and started in the world of sports journalism in 2004 in the newspaper El Sol de Mazatlán, where I was a baseball columnist and reporter at the same time. In January 2009 I came to El Debate as a journalist reporter and it was almost six years (in the first stage), until in November 2014 I emigrated to the radio providing my services in Línea Directa-Grupo RSN. My cycle there ended in July 2019 and after a few days, El Debate gave me another opportunity to work and opened the doors for me again. That is how I came to Al Bat, where I have been since 2019 as a web journalist.
