The Milwaukee Brewers enter the 2022 MLB season in hopes of securing their fifth consecutive playoff berth. Staying healthy is going to be a major key to success, though. Infielder Luis Urias is already in danger of missing Opening Day due to a left quad injury suffered during spring training.
Luis Urias Injury Update
Urias is expected to be out for at least two weeks, which puts his status for the first week of regular season action up in the air. That is not the update fans wanted to hear, especially since the Brewers are coming off a 2021 season in which they rostered the most players in a season in franchise history.
Of course, the 24-year-old utility man exploded for 77 runs scored, 23 home runs and 75 RBIs in 150 games played for Milwaukee last year.
Not only is Urias expected to be the team's starting third baseman, but he remains the primary backup to starting shortstop Willy Adames as well. The Brewers have Mike Brosseau and Jace Peterson to fill in over at the hot corner. Meanwhile, their depth at SS has suddenly become very thin.
For now, all Brewers fans can do is wait and see if Urias can crush his rehab and beat the return timeline. Milwaukee opens up the season on the road against the Chicago Cubs on April 7 and remains the favorites to win the NL Central at -125 odds, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
