The Milwaukee Brewers will be without All-Star pitcher Brandon Woodruff for the foreseeable future after an MRI determined he has an oblique strain.

Milwaukee placed Woodruff on the 10-day injured list. However, Craig Counsell told reporters Monday that Woodruff is expected to miss roughly six weeks of action due to the injury, per Todd Rosiak of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel.

Based on how long New York Yankees star Aaron Judge was out with a similar injury, though, that could potentially be a hopeful estimate.

Woodruff has been fantastic this season for Milwaukee, going 11-3 in his 20 starts with an ERA of 3.75, 136 strikeouts in 117.2 innings of work, and a 1.17 WHIP.
