The Milwaukee Brewers are in matinee action on Sunday, finishing off a three-game series against the Miami Marlins. Sunday's rubber game is an opportunity for Milwaukee to grab their 22nd win on the season and keep pace in the NL Central, the division they lead by 2.5 games.

Unfortunately, the Brewers' weekend tilt got off on a bad note. Shortstop Willy Adames exited the game early with a potentially concerning injury.

Willy Adames Injury Update

The second-year Brewers shortstop scored Milwaukee's first run of the game, but on an awkward slide into home. He stayed in the game for the bottom of the first inning, but he was lifted for Mike Brosseau in the second.

Brosseau came into play third base while Luis Urias moved over to shortstop.

This could simply be an exercise of caution for Milwaukee, but Brewers fans will want to pay close attention to Adames' status in the coming days.

Adames hasn't racked up hits like he did last year, but when he connects they've been finding the seats. The 26-year shortstop is slashing just .209/.306/.465, a distant cry from his stellar .285/.366/.521 performance. But, his nine home runs are tied for the team lead with Hunter Renfroe.

For now, the Brewers hold +1300 odds to win the 2022 World Series on FanDuel Sportsbook.
