Brewers' Corbin Burnes likely out for season with strained oblique

Ahead of Friday's doubleheader versus the St. Louis Cardinals, the Milwaukee Brewers placed right-hander Corbin Burnes on the 10-day injured list due to a strained left oblique. 

While the Brewers began the day still eligible to earn a postseason berth, manager Craig Counsell told reporters that it's doubtful Burnes, 25, would be available through at least the first two rounds of the playoffs, per the Associated Press (h/t ESPN). 

Burnes left Thursday's contest against St. Louis in the fourth inning with what was first described as lower-back discomfort. He surrendered a home run, three earned runs, and six hits. 

Following what would be a disappointing premature conclusion to his campaign, Burnes holds a 4-1 record with a 2.11 ERA, 1.02 WHIP, and 88 strikeouts across 59.2 innings of work. 

In corresponding roster moves, Milwaukee recalled infielder Ryon Healy and right-hander J.P. Feyereisen from the club's alternate training site. 

Zac Wassink is a football and futbol aficionado who is a PFWA member and is probably yelling about Tottenham Hotspur at the moment. Erik Lamela and Eli Manning apologist. Chanted for Matt Harvey to start the ninth inning of Game 5 of the 2015 World Series at Citi Field. Whoops. You can find him on Twitter at @ZacWassink
